We ate there many times, lunch, dinner, late night drinks. Steak tartare was great, salads were great, steaks, and burgers too. We have not had a bad meal there ever. Awesome food and service every time. The bartenders are the highlight for sure - drinks are delicious and creative and unique. We miss Brigite's a lot now that we're back... More

Dinner so so Kind service but menu is a bit of a mix of Italian and French cuisine. The outcome is a bit strange. Had some things crostini and bacalao. What is remarkable is the selection of house cocktails. Must try the Brigit spritz.

Brygite's was on my restaurant queue list for a while. I had the chance to dine there a couple of weeks ago with my wife and a couple of friends. I recommend you try to book a table, especially if you have plans for the weekend and unless you don’t mind waiting outside on the hot ‘Carioca’ summer. The restaurant... More

We were 30 minutes late due to bad weather and our reservation was cancelled by the maitre d'. On walking out he did however find us a... More

Food is average, there's no options for vegetarians but pasta. As if vegetarians only like to eat salad or pasta. Chef should be more creative and concerned about it. Drinks are the very best part of the experience.

Was looking forward to a good meal. The "couvert" was not great, on a scale of 1-10 the tuna ricotta (cheese/fish a no no) a 3, the mustard sauce a 2, the bread a 2. Definitely skip the couvert. The bacalhau special sounded good but the fish was chewy. I had 3-4 bites, when the waiter took by dish, you... More

Brigite's is a lovely and informal restaurant located in one of the most charming and popular streets in Leblon. The menu is small but exciting with a mixed italian and brazilian touch cuizine. No too much space it has the style of a bar-bistro but tastefully decoreted, the ambience is very pleasant and all the Staff very polite and professional.... More

Décor ok, food weak, price high. Don' t go I ate a duck that was certainly too tough and old. For the price they charge they should have been careful
