A very traditional small restaurante downtown. the speciality is Omelette of all flavors. Sandwiches are a great option too. The draft beer is very cool and you can buy delicatessen during you stay.

This place feels like childhood, when we still had several small business in Rio. The decoration and dishware is simple and ancient, but everything touch so deep in our memories. This place is great to eat the most traditional food of Rio - I am particularly a big fan of the Salami sandwich with an icy coke. Perfect match! Some... More

Casa Paladino is a very traditional restaurant in Downtown of Rio de Janeiro. They work like an old delikatessen sellin wines, whiskies, cheese, codfish and a variety of imported articles. For eating we have very traditional sandwiches and omeletes. Wonderful place to a quick lunch during the day.

An old establishment offering hot/cold sandwiches and omelets. As we understood no Portuguese, on the waiter’s recommendation, we ordered a “triplo” sandwich, which turned out to be pastrami, egg and melted cheese. The pastrami was 2cm thick so it was quite salty – perfect to be washed down with their icy-cold beer. We also ordered an omelet with cod (possibly... More

If you wanna go "roots" for your lunch, have to go to Casa Paladino. Looks like a really old grocery store, with no fancy things. Order the omelets with smoked pastrami or the sandwichs with fresh cheese and ham - unique flavour! Best place if you want to feel like a "carioca".

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
