I can´t remember how and whe we discovered this cozy restaurant. But, one thing I can say: everytime I go there it's a good experience. First of all, the prices match with the food, which is tasty and well prepared. Besides, they have a list of delicious desserts. Try chocolat mouse or chessecake.

This is one more restaurant in the Shopping da Gavea. Clean, open space, New York style decoration, ideal for dinner after the cinema. Good caipirinhas, and starters. My tuna au poivre was first class. The lemon cheese cake less so. Good value and nice atmosphere.

Excellent food; true the service was pretty slow but they are a small operation producing high quality fare. we had the pear salad, pumpkin soup, omellettes, waffle with dulce de leche and chocolate icecream and a caprese sandwich. artfully presented. the setting is very pretty in the gallery around the courtyard of the school.

Nice place with tasteful meals and fair prices. Try the "Filet Mignon à Mostarda"! It's wonderful! Try not to visit it on the weekends or holidays cause the mall(Shopping da Gávea) is always full of people and you might get a little time to get seated.

Português: Sempre que vamos ao Rio visitamos o shopping da Gávea para um teatro, e jantamos por lá. O D.R.I. é uma ótima escolha, com pratos bem elaborados e saborosos. Desta última vez porém houve um erro no meu prato. Pedi um filé mignon recehado com cogumelos frescos e acompanhado com verduras, e veio com um molho doce que não... More

I've been there twice and left both times having complained to the manager, who has no ability to deal with criticism but becomes aggressive. This last time we arrived for lunch with two hungry kids - and we told them that. The kind but slow and unintelligent waiter had to go to the kitchen to answer both the questions we... More

I think the worst thing about this restaurant other than the overpriced and tasteless food is the service. Specially if you find the restaurant empty of guests, it gets worse! The staff seems to go on zombie mode, they hang out talking to each other in the front counter rather than even look at their clients. The food is extremely... More

This restaurant is located in Gavea Shopping Center, but forget about the fact that it's an indoor restaurant ang give it a try. I have tried pretty much everything they have on their menu and never had a single disappointment. Their food is simply amazing!
