Always heard of the place but as an expat, only got the chance to go there on my last holidays to Rio. If you want to experience typical Brazilian snacks, then definetly worth a visit. Bolinho de feijoada was so nice. Very exotic for tourists and good value for money. Great service, friendly waiters. Would go back.

It's a shame, been here a few times and always enjoyed it. But, today we wanted to sit in the garden and were told the garden was closed because it MIGHT rain. We said we were happy to risk it and sat outside. They then refused to serve us outside!!! We went across the road to bar da frente and... More

This is definitely one of my favourite bars in Rio. The dishes are mouth-watering and they are typical from Brazil. The beers, on the other hand, are mostly foreign beers - which makes everything even better! Good food, good beer, good atmosphere! Just go there :)

If you want to try authentic Carioca food in authentic Carioca environment, you must visit Aconchego Carioca in Tijuca. Try the bolinho de feijoada (feijoada dumpling) and the pork ribs with guava sauce. It's the best in Rio.

Nice little find this. They do basic but interesting things with Brazilian staples, especially feijao, have great pastel de camerao and interesting beer menu and 5 star caipirinhas. It's located in the centre in a little exciting area, but was worth the trek. Much better than the average tourist traps that purport to serve Brazilian food in the zona sul.... More

For years I have been heard about this place, but only now had the opportunity to be there. It became famous because of the "bolinho feijoada" , which is good , but I wonder if the fame of the restaurant is justified by their cause . There are other delicious snacks such as "bolinho de arroz vermelho" and a priceless... More

You will have great food, fantastic environment but go with time to spend... Urgency is not the mood and you wait to be served. Expensive. But tasteful and different menu. Try "camarão na moranga" that is shrimp in a pumpkin. Several different and expensive beers available. Close to Maracana Stadium.
