The waiters are not very polite and they do not show any good treatment to the clients. Seems like obligation their service to me as customer. The food is really good, just because of it I have tried more than 3 times, but sadly my friends and I we were very bad treated by the waiters

Our Salmon was undercooked. After complaning 3 times tot the manager he just put it in the micro-wave to heat it up. Rest of the food mediocre. Don't eat here.

The view to Botafogo Bay and Sugar Loft is awesome. Be sure to try one of the tables next to the window. Food is excellent! there offer a large variety of dishes and the major concern is what are you having first and not eating too much!! Going there is always a good choice!

It's not easy to get there, since you will find several mall escalators on the way... But it definitely worth the effort! A terrific view from Botafogo bay, with Sugar Loaf Mountain in front of you can grant a very relaxing experience, while you try a good and affordable food.

Granted, you do have to make your way up, up, up through the mall, escalator after escalator, wending your way through crowds...but the journey is worth it. With every seat having a view out over the bay at Botafogo and out to Sugar Loaf Mountain, you may be tempted to forget the food. However, the friendliness of the staff, the... More

The salad was excellent- and it turned out that good fresh and unusual greens are easy to come by in Rio. The fish was way overcooked. The menu was uninspiring.... More

I don't know any chique restaurant in Rio with such a wonderful view. At Emporium Pax, you can enjoy a relaxing bistro atmosphere, the safety and convenience and of a shopping mall, very good food, a great view of the Sugar Loaf... paying reasonable prices. I'd suggest two dishes: the "atum de outono" - tuna sealed with sesame, with mascarpone... More
