Lagoon is one of the "locals only" places in Rio. They serve lunch and dinner and the place has 4 restaurants that share the same space. One of the is Gula Gula - a vegetable focus smart food chain. The Lagoon has a prime location on the Lagoa. The owners bought a 20 year lease from the municipality and constructed the building - also prepping it for the Rio 2016 Olympics. The rowing competitions will be held here.
The food is great and the bar serves amazing drinks. People dress up and some of the guests enjoy a concert at Miranda upstairs or watch a film at the cinepolis cinema next door.

The place, and old bleacher for watching rowing competitions at Lagôa Rodrigo de Freitas in Rio de Janeiro, is nice, extremely well decorated and with some 4 or 5 different restaurants, a couple of cinemas and a Theatre. We chose Gula-Gula and the food was very good and service friendly and competent which is unusual in Rio (its usually very friendly and incompetent). Cost benefit ratio is good. The best place to sit is the Terrace but, most of the times there will be a wait of around 30/40 minutes that is not too much if you can find a place to sit at the bar while you wait.

The Lagoon hosts restaurants and cinemas in a multi-layered building on the Leblon side of the Lagoa. The food is expensive, ( a caipirinha is about 17.50 Reis), but well-prepared. Go there for the view. Sit outside on the top floor and enjoy it.

Vibrant and refined at the same time, this space is one of the most interesting areas of Rio dedicated to the modern concept of gastronomy blended with city's landscape.

On the edge of the beautiful Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, on its terrace, there are about 5 options, all branches of some of the most renowned restaurants in the city, as Quadrifoglio, Giuseppe, Pax... really a wide range of good styles as well.

You can take a table on the balcony with a beautiful view to the lake and to the montains that surround it, sit in the lively lounge, where the atmosphere is more relaxed or even opt for the exclusivity of the interior of one of the above mentioned establishments.
