Nice selection of food and deserts for all tastes and desires. Self service with a taste of "la carte". Needs reservation on the week-ends and holidays, some Fridays too. But it is worth even if you have to wait.

I like going to Couve Flor because I always find many nice sample of foods. Their Japanese sample is ok. Not fancy, but decent California, hot Philadelphia sushis, among others, for Japanese food lovers... Vegetarians and gluten free/lactose free customers will also find what they...More

its is little noisy, but the food is very fresh and you have lots of choice. It's a kilo restaurant, so you choose what you want and weight the dish. So it's perfect when you are in diet and don't want to pay a lot.

This is a kilo type restaurant, one of the 1st of it's style in Rio. Some like this one closed, but I guess it is still open because the food is really good. You can have a little of this and a little of that.

I do not particularly like buffet but this is an easy way of getting fed when time is tight. The meat is better than expected as most meat in a buffer are overcooked but this one was not. Salad were also nice.

With thirty-one years of tradicion this restaurat was the first to work with self service in south zone of Rio de Janeiro, or how many of you call, the wonderfull city. Located at Botanic Garden, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods, near by the (emphasis here) Botanic Garden (the famous tourist spot). Variety and sophistication are the menu marks. Japonese food, brazilian and foreign cuisine to conquer all the palates, from the more demanding to the open minded.
