Great service, authentic and tasty carioca home cooking, relaxing ambiance as we ate in the outdoor courtyard.

Most likely a bar with a great food. Good reception, big beers menu, excellent typical Brazilian food! A must go for anyone visiting Rio.

This is definitely one of my favourite bars in Rio. The dishes are mouth-watering and they are typical from Brazil. The beers, on the other hand, are mostly foreign beers - which makes everything even better! Good food, good beer, good atmosphere! Just go there :)

If you want to try authentic Carioca food in authentic Carioca environment, you must visit Aconchego Carioca in Tijuca. Try the bolinho de feijoada (feijoada dumpling) and the pork ribs with guava sauce. It's the best in Rio.

Nice little find this. They do basic but interesting things with Brazilian staples, especially feijao, have great pastel de camerao and interesting beer menu and 5 star caipirinhas. It's located in the centre in a little exciting area, but was worth the trek. Much better than the average tourist traps that purport to serve Brazilian food in the zona sul.... More

For years I have been heard about this place, but only now had the opportunity to be there. It became famous because of the "bolinho feijoada" , which is good , but I wonder if the fame of the restaurant is justified by their cause . There are other delicious snacks such as "bolinho de arroz vermelho" and a priceless... More

You will have great food, fantastic environment but go with time to spend... Urgency is not the mood and you wait to be served. Expensive. But tasteful and different menu. Try "camarão na moranga" that is shrimp in a pumpkin. Several different and expensive beers available. Close to Maracana Stadium.

The menu is creative and tasteful, every time I go there I try a new appetizer. The beer selection is excellent, offering many imports. Considering the bad neighborhood, the place is expensive, but the quality is high - that is why we come back. The line to get in the bar is the downsize: you either get there early in... More

I went for the fame and for the " feijoada balls". Just ok. I do not recommend for foreigners to go alone. The location is not the best. You have to know the surroundings. The menu offers excess of frying dishes and everything is expensive. I also observed a clear differential treatment for "press people" who are present by chance.... More
