One of the best steakhouses in Rio, Pobre Juan excels in the quality of the food and the service. Although expensive, the experience is worth it.

Very cozy place with good dish options. The service is also good. The price is a little bit high, but it worth every cent.

This is a nice steakhouse in Rio elegant but not black tie, the food was great and the attention from the staff perfect. The business kind of rest and also for special occasions. Not cheap at all, least expensive meat plate is over 25 usd up to 100.

Nice view of Lagoa. I would recommend a table located in the outside of the balcony, in the rooftop. Staff is polite, fast and food is really good. Try the rumpsteak (picanha).

A nice restaurant . The problem is that always you want something in the menu and they don't have. A shame, because is a really nice and different food. The meat is amazing and the pistachio farofa one of the best.

This used to be the better when it had an amazing bartender that worked there. I went there many times just to have his drinks. But the food is very good as well. The atmosphere is sophisticated and there is live music at night. The steaks are fantastic as well as the desserts.

This might be in a shopping mall (quite common in a lot of hot countries) but if you dine inside you really could be in any restaurant in any city It's interior is quite dark and masculine but also very interesting with a great wine choice that you can browse yourself (very Brazilian) or ask the wine waiter for recommendation....

Went with a large group for dinner. We were well taken care of and the food was pretty good. Good steaks and empanadas. Wine list was also pretty good. Overall we had a good experience and would be happy to return.
