As I have written before, this is a very old established restaurant in Leblon. No frills, no elegance, but good food, large helpings (order one dish to share for two!), delicious bolinhos de bacalhau and the best "pasteis" in Rio. The caipirinhas are also very...More

Have known it for over 30 years. Was outstanding. Is old, decadent and run down. Food is reasonable. Have had to send food back. Stopped going, frustrated over these issues.

Alvaro's is one of the most traditional restaurant in Leblon. Not fussy, not trendy, not luxurious, but surely the BEST STEAK in town! Don't miss it! And as an appetiser, have one of the best "pastéis" in town! I recommend the cheese+onion one.

Very nice small restaurant, frequented by locals. Expect it to be busy and crowded but very friendly staff. Not much English but they work hard to communicate. The tournedos were outstanding, huge portions perfectly cooked.

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,
elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the
most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along
with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
