Best French in Brazil. Great chef and entertainer. Restaurant is flagship of the family owned and managed group, which also has the top catering service in town. Very good wine selection for a country with severe restrictions to foreign wines.

We finally returned to the restaurant, after more than 10 years, and were once again treated to a wonderful dinner. As before, we payed much more than we are used to, but if you are considering price, you should not think about entering the door....More

Mixing French cuisine with Brazilian ingredients, Olympe is my favorite restaurant in Rio. You can't go wrong there, everything is delicious!

We had a great lunch here. It is a very formal restaurant, with the waiters in suits and very attentive, but I enjoy that occasionally and the food was wonderful.

French inspired but with smart use of Brazilian typical ingredients. Very creative and innovative menu. Is expensive but worth it if you can splurge and want a change from the typical Brazilian fare. Wine list is not big but has a variety of international wines...More

If you want to spend a lot of money on an absolutely overrated restaurant, that is the place. Far far away from the Roanne experience. I was wondering to write something but the whole stuff was a great mistake, therefore I won't even bother to...More

I guess that a "Menu + wine" for two is going to cost around 300 USD (1200 brazilian reais). I have been there with my wife twice and the price was around 200 USD, but we didn't drink wine. This is, in my opinion, the best... More
