Amazingly memorable meal (7 course Amazon inspired dinner - ingredients from the Amazon - most of which we have never heard of) in an upscale restaurant with superb service and impressive decor. The food was out of this world, and most of the time I...More

The food is usually great, but the décor is too formal for Rio de Janeiro, a little somber. Expensive.

The presentation of the dishes is gorgeous, and it is a pleasure to have dinner in front of the most beautiful beach in the world.

The Amazonian menu did not disappoint. It came with a printed guide/brochure which made up for the language barrier. The setting and service were excellent. It doesn't get much better than this!

The only thing it's lacking is a sense of satisfaction. We had dinner for two, one normal three-course offering with each course selected...More

Simply the best restaurant in Rio. There are other superb restaurants in the city (e.g. Lasai, Olympe, Eleven), but Le Pre Catelan has more than a "je ne sais quoi" to deserve the status of "best". Ambience is nice, service is top notch, and the...More

The food was very good, albeit expensive by local standards. The chef is very imaginative. Portions are on the small side. We did encounter significant problems with the service. It took more than an hour for our appetizer to arrive after placing the order, and...More

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
