Let me start by saying this is my favorite restaurant in the whole wide world. The selection of underwater creatures are amazing. I have been a diver for 20 years (in the Northern Hemisphere) and I have to say that some of the stuff I ate there, I had not even seen before :). Traditional to the Brazilian restaurant culture, the food is served open buffet and you will not be satisfied with only one trip. The caipirinhas are out of this world and will add delight to your dining experience.
One word of advice: take it easy with the food or you could go into a food coma :)
You know you are in Rio when as soon as the gals sit down, a waiter shows up with yellow tape and affixs the handbag to the back of the chair to prevent grab and run from Rio's fav pastime....robbing the tourists!
Apart from that, this is a colorful institution that has been there for years.Yes, it may seem touristy, but the seafood is fresh,fresh,fresh.And lots of it.
They serve it on platters and it never stops coming.
Lobster, shrimp,local fish,crab you name it.
The salad bar is worth the price of admission alone.
Service is warm brazilian and the crowd is out for a fun time in Rio.
It is expensive but very much worth it.
I love this place! Yes, it's touristy, yes, it's expensive, but you'll have a great time!
It is Churrascaria style, but they also offer seafood. And unlike your typical Brazilian churrascaria, they don't keep coming with food, they bring it in courses, which is a fantastic way to eat without getting overstuffed.
The staff are fantastic, funny and friendly. The decor is like an eclectic pirates cave, there are some many different things, you could spend hours exploring.
You should go once, at least for the experience. It's worth the price!
Pirate style decoration doesn't give me much of the appetite plus the restroom is a little bit freaky but it is a very fun experience. The steaks and seafood are excellent. They tell you what part of meat everytime they are serving. Service is very attentive and waiters can speak English well. It's our first restaurant in Brasil. The damage is $200 for two with a couple of drinks and 1 dessert buffet.
If you have the money go for it!
It's extremely expensive for brazilians, but if you come from a country with a stronger currency there is no better place to eat seafood in Rio.
But you can eat as much as you want, it's a buffet.
And the quality of the food is incredible.
It's more a feast than a buffet they have. Awesome!
By the way, the map is wrong. It's not near any favela! It's actually by the beach!
another excellent place to experience churrascaria, interesting decor and setting. more fish here, and different items in the buffet -- more seafood. don't fill up too much on the buffet. definitely have to have Pudim de Leite Condensado, simple and nice way to cap a meat heavy meal. if you like chocolate truffles, look for Brigadeiros, but it was just ok here. anyway, rio is not known for food as compared to sao paulo.
The place has meat like most charascurrias but come for the seafood. Its good with plenty of variety. Its a little pricey but for the amount of lobster and other well prepared seafood its worth it.
A real nice restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, Zona Sul, between Copacabana and Leme. 50 meter to the beach by crossing the road.
The restaurant Marius looks a bit like an underwater cave. Very nice ambience, the waiters always pay attention and are very friendly.
The food is very good. You can choose between meat dishes or fish dishes. You also have a huge salad bar and buffet with oysters and other sea fruits.
For smokers you will find a cosy smoking lounge where you can enjoy a cigar or cigarette with a nice coffee.
The prices are relatively OK. They have a good wine card with a choice of the main wine regions of the world.
