We went to Yumê on a Monday, I was impressed with the aquarium floor they have (you have to take off your shoes to enter this part). The sushi was very fresh, specially the tuna. I would definitely come back!

A surprisingly nice and tasty experience. We loved the back room and were lucky to have a clear night so the ceiling cover was open and we could see the stars. Stars above and fish swimming under the glass floor. Very fun. The food was good too!!!

Had a great time here. The fish was very fresh and delicious and the environment is absolutely beautiful. If you're going with a partner, ask for a table over the aquarium! There's also great sake which goes very well with the delicious food- very worth a visit!

Sushi and sashimi were very good but don't worth it ! The desert was terrible. The decoration is nice, it is near the botanical garden and you can have a table were you can look the stars...

We were recommended this restaurant because of the opportunity to eat under Rio's night sky and above huge fish. And our table did not disappoint. I would recommend going to eat at this restaurant for this experience. The food is okay but certainly not out of this world. We ordered different types of sushi which was fresh. Our daughter ordered... More

Yumê serves a very traditional japanese food. The decoration is fine. When I am really tired usually I order to go. Good cost/ benefit. The fishes are very fresh.

"Yumê" is not situated in the tourist areas of Copacabana or Ipanema. It is located at the romantic quarter of "Jardim Botânico", what means one definitely needs a car to go and, principally, to come back (taxis are easily found around "Yumê" and porters will certainly help you). The venue is chic and trendy. The old mansion converted in restaurant... More

Great Japanese food in a beautiful environment! The regular dining space is beautiful, and the party room is spectacular, with its fish swimming down below...Very pleasant and very peaceful place to eat...

Once upon a time, the best Japanese restaurant was opened in Rio de Janeiro. In a beautiful neighborhood, btw (Horto, next to the Botanical Gardens) It had front tables, mattresses in the middle, and in the back the amazing floor aquarium and retractile roof (for romantic nights looking at the stars) It was the perfect place for a date, or...
