We usually go to Design Barra on Saturdays during lunch time because it has plenty of restaurants to choose from. We chose a restaurant in the 3rd floor where most of the restaurants are. Unfortunately, as soon as we arrived we realized there was an...More

This is certainly the third best mall in Rio. It has some very nice restaurants, good movie theaters and many shops. I would certainly recommend it.

Even though I´m not a shopping mall person, I found this one a great place to spend a rainy day in Barra. Never crowded, great restaurants and a nice place to leave the children.

everything @ Rio Design Barra is beautiful. Very comfortable, spacious - starting from the parking area - not crowded, noisy or too "bright".

This mall was recommended to me by locals and didn't disappoint. There is an excellent selection of boutiques and restuarants particularly on the upper floors. Highly recommended particularly the Portuguese restaurant and the cool In House Cafe Bistro.
