The service is competent and the decor elegant. We had lunch and enjoyed the executive menu which offers an entrée, a main course and a dessert with the possibility of choosing between the chef's suggestions. And the price is reasonable. If you are on the beach, the dress code is not that demanding since you are dressed up with beach... More

The food quality, the service, the pace, everything was great! I went for the chef menu and loved the beef raviolis and the roasted lamb steak with lentils. This is an expensive but top-quality restaurant.

In Brazil, many people mistake value for price. If one specific restaurant is expensive, you will probably find many outstanding reviews about it in Tripadvisor. I will not talk about price, I'll talk about value. I have been to Fasano al Mare 3 times, all of them for business reasons. In each one of these opportunities I experienced good service,... More

Bad service, very mediocre food, and way overpriced for what you get. We sat outside and the atmosphere was good until one of the waiters started sweeping around us.

Hotel bouncers treated us super rudely: we had to wait for 10 minutes outside for them to even let us into the hotel for a previously booked 10+ person business dinner. Since we arrived a bit early, we were ordered by the snooty Maitre D to wait in the lobby, not at the restaurant bar which was open and empty.... More

Description
The culinary tradition of the Fasano family finds a home in Rio de Janeiro at Fasano Al Mare, harmonizing perfectly with the marvelous city. Lead by restaurateur Rogério Fasano, the kitchen is run by chef Paolo Lavezzini, who joined the Fasano team from the Michelin three-star Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. The refined menu features the diverse aspects of Mediterranean cuisine, with a special focus on seafood. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily in the main dining area as well as the inviting terrace. Designed by Philippe Starck to offer beautiful views of the sidewalks of Ipanema, the restaurant also has a private dining area, concealed by white linen curtains, a Starck signature. Scandinavian tables are arranged under a splendid Murano chandelier.
