This is probably one of the most romantic restaurants in Rio due to the location and views. My partner and I did some stand up paddle & kayaking before heading up to the restaurant at 4 pm (for the record they are only open from Thursday till Sunday during the winter months and only till 5pm). We managed to get... More

I really enjoy this place. Great view and very good food... I really enjoyed the moqueca, very large portions and very tasty meals. The "pastels" of shrimp are great as well.... The view is really impressive. Depending on the time, you might have a large wait time... My only negative comment is the parking.... I thought the parking situation was... More

Dishies are for 3 or 4 people, so is a good place to share, but the price is a little expensive, on the other hand, has a wonderful view.

The food is good and made for sharing, but the prices are higher than the others in the region. The great thing is the view. An amazing place for tourists in Rio.

I am a big fan of Bira Restaurant. The food is awesome and with the expensive price. The view is amazing and the ride is a full day program for everyone. Don't forget to try the caipirinha :)

great place, which was shown to us by local friends. One hour drive from Copacabana, but well worth it: terrace over the sea, simple wooden tables, great atmosphere. We had a great seafood salad "vinaigrette de frutos de mar" with clams, octopus and I could have eaten just that...but then we ordered a "moqueca de camera", fish cooked in heaven... More

I live in Rio and went to Bira bringing a group of outsiders. I never went there before since today. It's a long ride from Leblon, 1 hour without traffic. BE AWARE Normally, in the weekends, there is a HUGE line, so don't go hungry! Line is confusing, the crew is slow and sometimes forget about you, so pay attention... More

A group of friends and I had lunch at Bira, after visiting Sitio Burle Marx nearby. The restaurant atmosphere itself is pretty average, it is the panoramic views of the beach and trees that make it special (that was the reason we chose it). I found the food just okay, making it one of the most expensive meals in a... More

Very,very expensive.Good options of fish but,still the great experience is to enjoy The appetizers section,"Pastéis of Shrimp"with a cold Beer or Caipirinhas and,the great view. Obviously if you go for an original Brazilian kind of Fish plate ,go with the Muquecas. They are very good . We ate the Muqueca de CAÇÃO and was nice.
