Went for the feijoada dish for two. Best dish I've had in Rio. Will be visiting again soon, taking friends and my parents to share the joy with.

This is an unpretentious bar/restaurant near Leblon beach. I was there for lunch after the beach and was surprised at the atmosphere which is a lot more modern and thought out than other "boteco´s" aka "dive bars" in the city. The service was impeccable and the waiters are courteous and give the best advice in case of doubts on what... More

We went for an early lunch with our two young children (ages 3 and 1). Staff at the restaurant was reasonably accommodating, and the food – especially the grilled meats – was delicious!

Bar Veloso has been in my radar since my last trip to Rio. I finally got here to send a friend off to Perth. Veloso is relaxed with tables outside but the bar/restaurant is open. The menu is vast but I love frango a passarinho and I also tried they fettuccine with steak. The portions are huge. Good caipirinhas and... More

If the menu says a dish serves 2, it will easily serve 3, and possibly 4 if you've also ordered starters! Prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. Waiters are friendly.
