This is the best Galeto I could find in Rio. The chicken is fresh and tasty, better than chain restaurant called Galito Grill. The broccoli rice is also nice.

This is overpriced dried out chicken. The farofa with banana tasted like margarine. Please don't waste your money here. There's better Galeto in Copacabana.

My husband and I stopped in on a Friday at lunch time honestly because we were having a bit of a bathroom emergency and decided to have a bite since we had used their facilities! We ordered a steak sandwich, fries, and a fruit salad, all of which were quite good. But after we ordered we noticed that the place... More

We found this restaurant on Yelp and decided to check it out. When we got to the door a server came over and seemed to be trying to discourage us from coming in and was pointing to another restaurant down the road. We asked if they were open and he sighed, stepped back and motioned us in. He ended up... More

Good food and service, in limited atmosphere. Typical local eatery with great chicken (Galeto especial), and good sides (salads, rice with broccoli and potatoes). Don't expect anything upscale, but good healthy food and very decent service, for a very reasonable price.

Galeto is a must. Not to be missed also sausage as a starter and tomatoe and palmito salada. The egg farofa is excellent. Staff above Rio's standards.

This restaurant was our first stop in Rio. Wonderful introduction to the food do my husband. It's mostly chicken chicken and more side dishes to go with chicken. The food is standard and consistent. We would have happily eaten there again but there were so many places to try!

When you enter in a chicken restaurant, you expect one thing : eating good tasty chicken! When you a get so little dried chicken pieces, you can only feel ripped off. After living and traveling to many countries and tasted Portuguese and Mozambican chicken (piri piri). You would expect that from galeto do leblon. So go far away and try... More
