The food is greasy, overpriced, service could not be worse. The view to the square and operahouse pays for the experience.

One caipirinha just about did me in. They're not the cheapest in the city (20R?) but they sure make it worth the price. Plus great outdoor seating where you can people watch on the plaza. A perfect way to kill the time between museums and...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
