Fresh ingredients with well ballanced flavours. The best choice for the severly hot summer days in Rio! Everyday a new menu of salads. You elect from one up to three salads and add a grilled protein choice for less than US $13,00!

We expected more from the long ques out the door ... selection of food was ok but not great ... taste was just ok ... not expensive . I have tasted a lot better salads not what we expected . Went there around 4:30pm . Maybe if you are from Brazil it is to your flavours and tastes .

The queues you will always find at the entrance of this establishment at peak times prove the quality and value of Delirio Tropical. You have a vey good selection of salads,cold dishes, a small one of hot dishes, some sandwiches and very good desserts. The food is always fresh and beautifully prepared. It is served on a tray and you... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants years ago. Close to the beach. But yesterday, we had a terrible experience. The meat wasn't cooked enough and very expensive.

My partner and I found this restaurant chain on Trip Advisor and thought it sounded perfect, a light and healthy dinner after all the rice/beans/fries we'd been eating in South America. We enjoyed being able to choose from a selection of beautiful salads (1 for R$16.50, 2 for R$22.50 or 3 for R$30) plus additional items, I had mushroom quiche... More

One of my "rituals" when I travel to Rio de Janeiro is the singular opportunity to have a lunch alone at this restaurant. Natural foor, light one, full with beautiful people, facing the corner of Garcia DÁvila , watching the "cariocas" passing buy coming from or going to the beach. Easy talk, light food, happiness in the air. I miss... More

Nice variety of yummy vegetarian options! Was just a little disoriented by the rushed pace to get you through. The style of buffet only lets you choose 1-3 options, so choose wisely. Overall everything was tasty and would return again.

It's a great option if you're looking for a light and healthy meal, especially compared to the often quite heavy brazilian food. Canteen-style, i.e. you have to take a tray and order at the counter. So don't ve surprised. They're only open until 9pm most days so not suited for a late dinner.

This is a mid-scale version of what would be called a "cafeteria" in the US: you push a tray along a counter, ask servers for what you want, and find an available table. It is a chain, with a few locations spread around the city. The specialty seems to be salads, but there are hot dishes, soups and sandwiches as... More
