Went to Rascal again, this time with a group of friends for a birthday party. The buffet was excellent, as it always is — good variety, well prepared salads, cheese and cold cuts of good quality. Went there twice. The pasta bar was not of the same standard. The pasta was somewhat overcooked, not al dente. The tomato sauce was very good, but the polpetoni, a favorite, not so good. Dessert was excellent. The only complaint is the mixed service. The sommelier is very knowledgeable and knows his trade, but we had to ask the waiters many time for mineral water and cocktail pizza for the children. All in wall, given the price for food in Rio, the cost is very good. We will go there again.

Used t like this buffet...this time was very dissatisfied, service weak, careless...food not good as used t o be... I ordered salmon grilled plus salad buffet, I started to eat the cold buffet, already came the hot dish, asked them to send it back, I wanted time to eat the buffet without rush....
Found the buffet without much imagination, used to have seafood....nothing... wasn't worth the R$84,00 they asked for it....
Ordered caipiroska to drink, wasn't well done, not good at all
The salmon was a bit and tasteless...
The best thing was the ice cream we asked for dessert.
Won't go back in the near future!!!!

Mever ate so many combos in my life before going here. The restaurant has a great variety of italian dishes but the quality leaves to be desired, since i was there once before and now its worse.. some dishes like the seared tuna had nomflavor and the polpetone tasted like anything that was deepfried. The alfredo sauce was not even close of what it was before...

A friend and I had headed to Rio for carnival and decided to head here for my birthday for a little
Brunch. I don't usually like buffets, but actually this was one of the best buffets I have been to. Nice and fresh ingredients. And lots of
Variety. Good pasta and the salad bar was very good. Highly recommended if you are in Leblon. We actually visited twice we enjoyed it that much. The service is pretty attentive too.
