“Confused”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Most of these reviews seem to be of the large samba club Rio Scenarium. SANTO Scenarium is the small jazz-orientated restaurant a couple of doors down.

Excellent spot to chill out and enjoy very good food. The unique decoration is a plus. It is definitely worth visiting.

“Are you in Rio or New Orleans?”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

That was the question going through my mind. What a great place! An old style colonial house in Lapa with eccentric decor and great atmosphere. I particularly loved the large inner balcony area, though which you can watch the shows going on on the stage downstairs without having to stray too far from your table or put down your caipirinha.

“Great music and good food”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

Went here with 5 friends - the music was fantastic and the food did not disappoint. The prices were quite low for Rio (20 Reals cover for music is added tho, but its totally worth it). I had a local fish dish and a bean soup - although the food was not spectacular, you really come to this place for the music, the dancing and the general fun atmosphere. We went on a weekday and it was quite busy.

Recommend taking a cab there as walking around during the nightime in Centro is not really a good idea.
