Architecture is fantastic. Food is OK, nothing really special. I couldn’t buy any desserts because the waiting line was huge. Service is ok as well. Go there, take a picture and look for somewhere else to eat.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
