I prefer eating self buffet style restaurant. It is more convenient for me to get food which I like. There are many shrimp food which my favorite. and I tried beer instead of wine. I recommend it.

I always find this restaurant a wonderful choice. The variety of food is great and I have had great seafood as well as fresh fruits and delicious cuts of meats. In terms of price, on the higher end for comida kilo. Good for solo meals...More

We asked for a GLASS of wine. They opened probably the most expensive bottle they had and charged us 103 reals for it. With over cooked dry chewy meat and a couple salads our bill was $70 US dollars! For this dump. I don't trust...More

It looks like nothing to write home about from the outside - a rather modest red and black frontage on a busy suburban Rio street. But it´s like the TARDIS when you go in. Catete Grill seats around 120, and is one of Rio´s numerous...More

The place has a good self-service ("buffet por peso") with several types of food. The price is normal and the quality of the food is good. Normally, you can even eat some good seafoods (depending on the time you arrive at the restaurant).

This is one of those restaurants where you select what you want and pay by the kilo. There is a huge assortment of salads, meats, starches, deserts, breads. Pretty much anything you could want. They also have a bar that makes a great Caipirinha. But...More

The locals seem to love 'per kilo' buffets in Rio and this place does actually justify its slightly higher price. The range was great and everything was cooked well. We have struggled to find fish in particular that is not overcooked elsewhere in Rio but...More

The staff is helpful and the restaurant is clean and frequented by locals from the area. Some buffets also have a menu available, however this is entirely a buffet. The food is fair to good (I admit, i do not like buffets).
