Cais is a newcomer at Rio's restaurant scene. It has been recently opened at the same premises of former "Cais do Oriente", but is a completely new restaurant, with new décor and also a new proposal. Its Chef, Eduardo Castro, brings experience, international awards and exquisite flavors to Rio's cultural district. The building itself, dating from 1878, when was used as a commercial warehouse for spices imported from the Orient, has been carefully restored and deserves a visit. Ideal for lunch while in downtown or visiting the various cultural centers just at short walking distances. Reservations are highly recommended, specially for groups. Enjoy!

Nice, arab inspired dishes. Medium priced and a prime location downtown Rio de Janeiro. Head in for a lunch and catch the ferryboat at Praça XV to the Niemeyer museum in Niteroi.

had the fish stew, WAS FANTASTIC. Portion was Huge, i only was able to eat half, and I am not exactly a dainty delicate flower, if you get my drift. I am always impressed when the seafood is served so hot you can't eat it, yet tender and moist.

Food is average , people ok, place is cool, apple pie dessert is marvellous. If you don't have much time to spend for better food , a standard choice.
