I was here for a anniversary dinner. Since I did not know the place, I arrived open-minded. But it was probably the first and also the last time. First of all, the prices are compatible with fine dining, but most food served here could be qualified as junk. Since I do not eat junk food, I decided to order a... More

The restaurant is very nice and the meals are very well prepared. The bar is a good choice to watch a game and drink some beers.

My father HAD to come here for All-you-can-eat ribs! The ribs lived up to expectations. Although our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. The staff was lovely. Super helpful and gracious. No one spoke English. But, we worked it out using miming and hand signals. Barra de Tijuca is a ways from Copacabana with traffic. (It's actually only about 12... More

Went on a weekend afternoon, fairly busy inside but able to get a table. Quick summary - the food (I had ribs) was really tasty and I enjoyed. It was a little bit more pricy than the likes of Outback, but the food was good and I'd have the ribs again (Generous) if returning. However, service was slow. It took... More

I enjoy the place. A lot of TV and a nice menu. They dont have many options for grilled stuffs but if you dont have problem with other kind of foods go ahead. I like the lemonade with flavours.

I went with my husband all the way to Barra to eat at Applebee's and were disappointed at the poor and slow service... appetizers took a long time to arrive and were not even warm (we hesitated to send them back because we knew they would take forever)... Main courses came about 20min apart! I am a huge Applebee's fan... More
