Bar Luiz serves good, simple food in a classic setting, full of atmosphere. They are in a central location close to many tourist attractions and make a great stop for visitors

I stopped by for a pint and a snack on a hot afternoon and this place was perfect to wind down after walking a while. Focus is on service quality and it is great, seeing these servers work as they do is beautiful.

Pretty convenient location, food and Chopp were very good. Worth the stop for lunch if you are in the Centro region! Be aware that it can get pretty busy during the lunch hours. Knowing no Portuguese was not an issue, there are English menu options.

One the few places downtown with reasonable prices, and a good quantity of food. Beer on draft is fabulous, Roast beef and potato salad an absolute must.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
