Had lunch at the place and thought it to leave a lot to be desired. I ordered wurst and potato salad. It was OK. Portions are minimal, service acceptable and prices are on the high side.

We went to this place late during the evening. It seems like it is a small place but it is really great. We just grabbed some sandwiches and toasts and enjoyed the stay a lot. Even if we cannot rate it for other dishes, the snacks they offer are great. Definitely worth a visit if you are not super hungry... More

Unfortunately, we found this little gem the last day we were there. It was a good value with food choices with variety. Dessert came with the food we ordered and it was delicious. It was very small but sweet and very Brazilian.

Good spread, breads, cold cuts, cheese, eggs - good quality, friendly service. Not cheap, but worth the price. In the heart of Leblon, walking distance to the beach.

Very usual place. Food is rather europeish than local, and tastes not so well. Friendly staff, English menu and good caipirinha

This place in Leblon was perfect for a late lunch. Still costly like most places in Leblon the service was excellent, they spoke English and the deserts were perfect. Had a sausage that could have been a fine German sausage. The potato salad was worthy as well. Stop by and you will not be disappointed.

I have been living in Sao Paulo for 26 years, but was born and raised in Rio, spending my vacations in Petropolis. Among several others, Pavelka was one of my best memories from that time. It simply achieved all my expectations, which were pretty high, by the way. My kids loved it as well, enjoying the "croquetes" and "risolis".

After one month in South America, I was really surprised to find in Rio such a place as Pavelka. It is very European, but in a nice way. I tried coffee and some cake, and both were perfect. I enjoyed there not only in those things, but also in very specific and relaxed atmosphere...

Thank TiborBH
