The place is cosy, has a well varied menu, including poultry, meat, pasta and seafood. The dessert options are very delightful as well. But one special remark must be made for the service, they are very well trained and attentive. Regarding the price, it's​ really worth for special occasions.

This is a modern and trendy restaurant in Barra. It is high-end Italian food in a high-end environment. While it is good, it is not worthy of a Certificate of Excellence. While it may be the best restaurant in Barra, that is not saying much. Gero Barra (close by) is a restaurant I prefer (albeit both are very similar). If... More

Service impeccable, esquisite and welcoming ambience with a tempting wine letter. I recomend the lamb with the truffle poché truffled poached raviolli. Unforgettable!

It did not correspond to what we expected by the reviews. Service good but impersonal, chefs commenting that the wine was not appropriate to the dish, which today does not give much more importância.E for me, I take wine daily, and know the price in the Brazilian market, the list was out of touch .

Everything about Duo was Super! As a Corporate Client, who brought groups of guests to the restaurant throughout the course of the Olympics, we had nothing but a positive experience. The waiter service was both personable and professional. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were ample. The wines we were offered to match with the dishes were extremely... More

We were staying in Barra for the Olympics and this restaurant came highly recommended. Located between Barra and Copacabana, I would take an Uber to this restaurant as it was the best meal we had during our stay. The bread plate is a must order with at least five different, delicious choices. Several of us had pasta which was fabulous... More

Smart restaurant. Excellent tasty fish and seafood dishes which were nicely presented. Made a change from the meat orientated offerings available elsewhere. Expensive, but not overpriced for the area. Be careful with the breads that are presented just as you've sat down, as you will be charged if you accept them. Good wine list, but only one choice of beer... More

Excellent evening dinner followed by equally pleasing lunch the following day. Couldn't fault the food or service. The rare salted Tuna dish was an absolute highlight as were a number of the deserts. Service is good as is the atmosphere which also has an outside option.
