I had lunch for the second time here and both times the food was excellent. The restaurant has daily specials as well as a full menu. The beer selection is fantastic, and the service at this very clean restaurant is professional. I would recommend the filet mignon or the picanha. The prices are very reasonable.

located in Centro, it attracts a business crowd. decent service. The kassler was a large portion with a potato gratinee. Order the sauce on the side! A good beer listing. A reasonable price for Brasil. I'll return, but with friends to sample a larger part of the menu.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. Sometimes I go with only one friend but, on occasion, I have been there with several people. Because the restaurant is so popular, it is sometimes difficult to get a table. The food is well worth the wait. The menu is quite varied but has a tendency for European and especially German...

Casa Urich is the right place to go for an honest meal when lunching downtown. Waiters that don't borrow you bring large and excellent plates of several distinct tastes. When just half hour is available to lunch, certainly you'll be satisfied.

I've been to this place on a couple of occasions. Always on thursdays because it's "Chicken Kiev" day. Despite the dish's greasiness and unhealthy aspects, it's a like a treat I give myself every once in a while. It makes your working week better. I also like the place's classic setting, one hundred years old. Last thursday I got there... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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.
