We were in a party of 11. We had a table upstairs. Service was quite fast. Food is OK. Hubby ordered Yakisoba but it was very salty - excess of soy sauce - and the noodles had a strong butter flavor. We tried several dishes, and our bill was close to USD 250 including only sodas... quite expensive.

Being a regular to many Manekinekos in Rio it is hard to review this one in such a bad way, but The Cobal branch is in dire need of a restructuring. Food is still good, as it is with the other branches. Service however is pitiful to say the least. We had to continuously ask for someone to come to... More

We chose degustation menu and for my opinion is was over priced. Pieces was very small. I do not recommend.

We have been here several times for dinner, always nicely presentated and good sushi. Yesterday we went for lunch, and that is a good deal!

We didn't try much of the brazilian-japanese fusion, and chose rather safe options from the menu, but everything we had was very tasty. Great location, good food, good service.

We went to Marekineko in Leblon for a Sunday lunch and expected an above average sushi experience. Sadly, we found the service staff attentive, the food mediocre and the prices above average even for Leblon restaurants. I would not say the experience was disappointing, but it certainly was not the experience I expected. There is better priced sushi in the... More

Very good. We had the haddock chips and the summer mix. Great quality for the price. Service was a bit confused but nice I'm going back again if I can make a reservation since nobody answers the phone. Typical place with great food but missing lots of opportunities to involve clients.

All the Manekinekos are really rather a safe bet to go to, a great selection of Japanese food including home-invented ones, recommended!

I have been to one of the chains for lunch a few times and the services is mediocre on a good day. The sushi is alright It misses the freshness of the fish you want for sushi. Overal it is ok but there are better choices for sushi in Rio.

A great option of Japanese food in Rio de Janeiro. I took the "rodizio" with all you can eat and I feel it was worth. Good sushi options but like almost all Japanese restaurants in Rio it is quite expensive.
