We had a great lunch here. It is a very formal restaurant, with the waiters in suits and very attentive, but I enjoy that occasionally and the food was wonderful.

French inspired but with smart use of Brazilian typical ingredients. Very creative and innovative menu. Is expensive but worth it if you can splurge and want a change from the typical Brazilian fare. Wine list is not big but has a variety of international wines that are quite expensive. Desserts are also a hit. Service is very professional and attentive.... More

If you want to spend a lot of money on an absolutely overrated restaurant, that is the place. Far far away from the Roanne experience. I was wondering to write something but the whole stuff was a great mistake, therefore I won't even bother to do so. My carioca friends, watch out! Ah, lastly, the wine expert tried to sell... More

I have had wonderful meals at Olympe (a great duck for instance) but I have also had duds (Wagyu beef) that while not awful give me pause before going back. Were it more reasonably priced, it would of course be worth taking the chance but it isn't (in my experience it is easily the most expensive restaurant in RJ). The... More

Fantastic cusine from Chef Claude and his son Thomas are a French family that emigrated first to the USA, then to Brasil fourty years ago. The cooking styles are classic French adapted to the available ingredients. This is a small place with a tiny kitchen producing their masterpieces. The wine list was impressive, and the service was first class. They... More

First, although the wait staff was courteous and attentive, none spoke any English. They had to grab someone from the kitchen to translate for us. I also agree with a previous review that there were too many servers just standing around. We were the first ones in the restaurant; there was no one else to wait on so we felt... More

If you enjoy good service, creativity, and delicious food, don't waste your money here. If you need a recommendation, go to Lasai instead where you'll actually get impeccable service, as well as truly creative AND great tasting food. I came here with my boyfriend the night before his birthday after scoping out tripadvisor reviews (which I no longer trust, but... More

The food was excellent and the service couldn't be faulted. However, there seemed to be more staff than necessary and they looked like night club bouncers, bulging out of too tight shirts.
