Food is average, there's no options for vegetarians but pasta. As if vegetarians only like to eat salad or pasta. Chef should be more creative and concerned about it. Drinks are the very best part of the experience.

Was looking forward to a good meal. The "couvert" was not great, on a scale of 1-10 the tuna ricotta (cheese/fish a no no) a 3, the mustard sauce a 2, the bread a 2. Definitely skip the couvert. The bacalhau special sounded good but the fish was chewy. I had 3-4 bites, when the waiter took by dish, you... More

Décor ok, food weak, price high. Don' t go I ate a duck that was certainly too tough and old. For the price they charge they should have been careful

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Rio. Close to my apartment, we always go for a quick dinner or to long nights with friends. Wine list is good, cocktail menu is great and the bartender explain how it`s done if you seat at the bar. My favorite dish is the Hearts of Palm pasta with truffle olive oil.... More

On a street filled with excellent competition, Brigite's offers a difficult combination to find in Rio - consistently excellent food and reliably outstanding service. Whether seated in the bustling upper level, or just enjoying a space at the bar, we have always been met with enthusiasm. Management has stopped by to check to see if we were satisfied (we always...

We had quite a few experiences with poor service in Rio. Brigit's was not one of them. The service was actually very good - as was the food. I recommend it highly.

Visited with some work colleagues in August for dinner. There were 7 of us in total, a mix of English, Aussie, American and we had a big circular table upstairs in the restaurant. The staff in particular we're really wonderful even though there was a language barrier between some of us. They were friendly, warm and welcoming and made a... More
