Really good food in good portion. I love it. The price is not the best in the area though. But I would still recommend.

The caring staff is the most symbolic characteristc of the place. The food is good but not outstanding. The menu offers several choices of meat, side orders and sauce. I had a steak with a green pepper sauce and a side of colourful rice (with vegetables). Fair.. Staff is well trained and very caring. Worth a visit.

In Muri, minutes from Nova Friburgo is this better keep secret place. Family owned restaurant with a German cuisine, the place is very agreeable with German decoration on a mountain clime temperature. The way to prepare your plate is: chose the meat, the sauce and potatoes or rice. Great taste. Desert is also great. Good wine selection. Excellent service.

Just another thing the makes it feel as though they don't... More

Nova Friburgo was founded by Germans and that shows in many ways--especially in the food. German food is easy to find in that area at the many pensions and hotels. Viva Ro restaurant is no exception. The menu is predominantly German, with traditional fare such as bratwursts, potato salad and meatloaf and other dishes to satisfy those who do not... More

This has to be one of the most inventive cuisines here, and anywhere, for that matter. Viva Rô's chef is capable of fulfilling anyone's taste, whether you're a fan of seafood or hunger for a suculent filet mignon, not to mention the delicious side dishes. The waitresses are always very attentive and helpful, and the atmosphere is one of pure... More
