We just had to go to a Samba bar in Rio and was told this was the biggest and best so we did, we were also told the food was amazing. Hmm Samba bar great, food not so good. Eat before you go!!

Came here based on others' reviews but sadly disappointed. Main issue was appalling service. Waiting staff were very inefficient with a poor attitude coupled with a general sense that they did not know what they were doing. When they did finally take our order after...More

A wonderful place to visit in Rio, with great music drinks and decent snacky food to go along with it. A wonderful atmosphere inside that it would be hard not to have a great time at.

With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
