The little islet - Isla da Gigoia is accessed by small punts which leave from a jetty so that no more than 5 minutes later,you are there - a local couple going to Laguna recommended it to us,so what to lose? We sat near them and whilst we shared no common language,we so,show communicated. Our meal began with 2 excellent... More

I love this place, from how we go, that is by boat in a amazing view, the atmosphere of the restaurant is like a friends house, very relaxed but chic at the same time. The food is very tasty, I've had different dishes and they were all delicious, I super recommend!!

The place is amazing and the food is super good. It's really hidden in the middle of Barra da Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro. It's really worth to pay a visit. Prices could be better, but the food is delicious, it's worth to pay. I definitely recommend.

This is a place tourists usually do not visit. To get there you need to take small boats, which can be rented to visit the islands. Very nice place.

My partner who is from Rio suggested we come to this restaurant as it is only really well known by locals, and happens to be really great. It did not dissapoint! You have to take a small boat to get there, and at night you can see all the lights of Rio. It is really beautiful. We had shrimp pastel... More

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and went there with big expectations. And we got what we were looking for. This place is so romantic and relaxing hidden on a small island in the lagoon. Only reachable by a small shuttle boat behind Unimed Rio. The food was delicious! We ordered 1 mixed sea food dish with coconut cream and... More

What you have in Laguna it is not just a meal, it is a small adventure. The food is creative, well presented and delicious. It is not expensive for Rio. Desert called brownie was a canned chocolate cake?, we just left it. But the rest was so spectacular, that we forgave it. It was a high point of visit to... More

Laguna Restaurant is a hidden gem in Barra. recommended by a friend based on reviews seen on Trip Advisor. There were 2 of us for dinner on a Saturday evening. Surprisingly, the restaurant was very quiet (perhaps because of rain?). The short boat ride from Barra Point shopping was pleasant and made a few stops before dropping us at Laguna.... More

An island not even known by the locals. A great view, right in the heart of Barra da Tijuca. Open from Thursday to Sunday (Thursday and Friday for dinner only) it serves great food in a bucolic setting that pleases all. Children can play in the garden while adults enjoy the food and drinks. Make sure you make reservations. The... More
