The food is reasonable, but the place is too full and the queues are long. You spend more time paying and picking up food than eating. The place is dangerous, in case of fire is a disgrace.

Uncomplicated and objective, this restaurant has revolutionized lunch during business hours in the city of Rio de Janeiro, enabling a quick meal, without sacrificing quality. Terrific salads and nice atmosphere in every branches.

I went there for lunch, and the concept is basically that you can pick 1-3 salads, and add on extras such as hamburger or chicken. Everything very delicious and fresh, and fairly priced. Desserts are ok, but not more than that. Open 9am to 9pm.

It is very crowded at lunch time, mainly with people having a lunch break from nearby offices, and tourists as well. i... More

This is a great, casual spot for lunch or dinner. It is pretty healthy and has a huge variety so everyone will be happy. It is buffet style and they charge by the number of items you get. There are some traditional Brazilian things but mostly salads, veggies and pastas with some entree options. They also have an amazing passionfruit... More
