It was a very warm evening in Rio when we went to Otto. Although there are tables outside, we asked to have a table inside in the air conditioning hall. Unfortunately the air conditioner was not working properly and it was very unpleasant to dine there food was good though. I recommend to the owners to review its air conditioning... More

I was surprised that this restaurant was so authentic German. They had quite a good selection of German beers and the food was very good. Ordered the meatloaf and I expected a kind of meatloaf that I am used to but this was different. But it was surprisingly good! It came with mustard, boiled potatoes, cabbage and a fried egg... More

I go to Otto regularly and the main thing that keeps me coming back with my mother and friends is the absolutely marvelous German food, which is a hard thing to find in Rio at this quality level and price. The potato salad is simply perfect, with just the right combination of potatoes, spices, other veggies and mayonnaise. The sausages... More

It's not one of the bests in whole Rio, but it is one of them in Zona Norte. So if you were visiting Tijuca Floresta or Corcovado and passed by definitly it is worth it to be tried. The Signiture starter is Palmito, do not miss it.

We had the baked palm (palmito) as an entrance. It´s fantastic to see how they do it and really tasty too. Main dish was filé mignon with pineapple and cheese in a rosè sauce and rice with yellow raisins. My husband had picanha. We were all very happy with what we got. I recommend a visit if you want to... More
