Not to mention how busy this place is, but it's a really nice place to have a drink with friends. No dancing and no music food is great try the beef Broth and the calamari . Service is very good and the ambience is interesting.

Stopped by Belmonte for a bite to eat. This place was great! The service was excellent. The waiters are attentive and our drinks were served promptly. Our lunch was presented and played by our waiter. We enjoyed lunch and we will definitely go back to this spot again!!

This spot is great. A family friend lives around the corner and took me here while visiting. The pasteis are tasty and there are lots to choose from. They serve ice cold Chopp, which has become my go-to favorite in Brasil for draft beers. As far as I could tell, this place was all locals, probably some businessmen, mostly low-key... More

I've went to Belmonte several times but this was one of my worst moments. We ordered a Spicy Shrimp and were contemplated with a small and not even a little bit tasty dish... Very disappointing. Lots of money for no reward... Beer ok. Other typical dishes (pasteis and empadas) ok.

The best Brazilian we've had in Rio, we were recommended to go here by a local and I would definitely recommend to others. Most of the dishes are for sharing which makes the meal great value. Very tasty food, staff were extremely helpful & friendly and the atmosphere was buzzing.

I was in Rio for almost 2 weeks and went to several Belmontes (there are a few in the city). Love everything about it: the food, the decor, the service, the vibe. A totally solid, reliable standby. I miss the bolinhos de bacalhau the most. If there was a Belmonte in Brooklyn, where I live, I'd go there once a... More
