We got lucky arriving at this restaurant on a Sunday night and finding that there was a pasta and pizza buffet special. It wasn't haute cuisine but there were tasty options and we had a good meal for a good price. There were also a la carte options with sushi but it seemed that most were there for the special.

We stopped here with a city tour that we did, so a local person picked it and brought us here. The options were great, the food fresh and delicious. They dont speak alot of English (but we found that alot in Rio), but it is a buffet style so you go and help yourself, it is weighed and you pay... More

Grace Village is a popular restaurant, huge, with buffet service. There is a wide variety of food: from salads to seafood and meat. Of course, you can not go to that branch of Catete in anticipation of eating exceptional dishes, but in its proposal, a simple restaurant, he does not disappoint. The restaurant, even for its size, is noisy and... More

Saturday night - after a wedding ceremony at church, on a group of family and friends we visited this restaurant to celebrate. What a terrible choice! We waited for about 30 minutes to have the tables set, and they weren't. We had to set them by ourselves. After that, we waited for about 20 minutes to have our orders served.... More

I always have lunch here when I'm in the area, I love the BBQ here and the salad bar also. Not worth traveling to but if you are in the area or passing then why not check it out, its super clean and I pay about R20's for lunch with a beer. Can't complain about that.. no way would you... More

Went for the rodizio (all you can eat pizza, crepes, pasta etc.). It was all awful. All the pastas had shrimp or other seafood in them and tasted very fishy. Crepes were ok, though they were only savory (ie ham and cheese). French fries were surprisingly good as was the chicken. Pizza was terrible. Bad selection of flavors. All of... More

Have visited Graca da Vila on several occasions and always have had great food and service. My latest visit was no exception. Graca is different from other all you can eat pizza places in that they also serve pastas and crepes. Service on my latest visit was not good, it was exceptional. The ingredients on the pizzas were fresh and... More

My aunt and I had found it completely by accident, as it was initially a shelter from the torrential rain that had caught us. It wasn't until we saw a group of people leaving it towards a van and we got in to scape the rain that we realised it was a restaurant. We were hungry as well, so that... More

Good if you're in the neighborhood, otherwise don't make an effort t0 get here. It's buffet style and they charge you $11-12 per pound. Quite pricey for mashed potatoes.
