Was looking forward to a good meal. The "couvert" was not great, on a scale of 1-10 the tuna ricotta (cheese/fish a no no) a 3, the mustard sauce a 2, the bread a 2. Definitely skip the couvert. The bacalhau special sounded good but the fish was chewy. I had 3-4 bites, when the waiter took by dish, you... More

Brigite's is a lovely and informal restaurant located in one of the most charming and popular streets in Leblon. The menu is small but exciting with a mixed italian and brazilian touch cuizine. No too much space it has the style of a bar-bistro but tastefully decoreted, the ambience is very pleasant and all the Staff very polite and professional.... More

Décor ok, food weak, price high. Don' t go I ate a duck that was certainly too tough and old. For the price they charge they should have been careful

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Rio. Close to my apartment, we always go for a quick dinner or to long nights with friends. Wine list is good, cocktail menu is great and the bartender explain how it`s done if you seat at the bar. My favorite dish is the Hearts of Palm pasta with truffle olive oil.... More

On a street filled with excellent competition, Brigite's offers a difficult combination to find in Rio - consistently excellent food and reliably outstanding service. Whether seated in the bustling upper level, or just enjoying a space at the bar, we have always been met with enthusiasm. Management has stopped by to check to see if we were satisfied (we always...

We had quite a few experiences with poor service in Rio. Brigit's was not one of them. The service was actually very good - as was the food. I recommend it highly.

Visited with some work colleagues in August for dinner. There were 7 of us in total, a mix of English, Aussie, American and we had a big circular table upstairs in the restaurant. The staff in particular we're really wonderful even though there was a language barrier between some of us. They were friendly, warm and welcoming and made a... More

Nice place in Leblon, which is definitely the best neighborhood to stay when in Rio de Janeiro. The restaurant has good and tasty food but service is confusing and slow.

I just finished lunch here with my family. We were a table of 10 and I have never experienced such crappy service in Rio. It took just under 2 hours to get served my moqueca, which they neglected to put coconut milk in. The only highlight was the spicy tuna tartar, which was surprisingly brought out an hour and a...

hi LSA, we are extremely sorry for the delays in your food, and will take your complaint to our next staff meeting. As for the moqueca, we only make it with coconut milk, otherwise it isnt moqueca, just a seafood stew. We hope to see you again. cheers! Cristiano Nogueira More
