I just love this place. Not only this one, but all Gula Gula. Cozy food, nice price, nice place. I always order the oriental salad with apricot and brie quiche. As entree, I order the gorgonzola mousse. Put extra mustard vinagrette! It's amazing :)

As soon as I get to Rio, I usually stop by at Gula Gula and grab a salad and dessert. However, this time, we decided to order it as we were tired and our friends didn't want to go out. How disappointing! The amount of...More

Not a big fan. The food is good but not great and I find it to expensive for what it offers but I do have friends who love it.

Nice lighter dinner after so much South American beef. The pasteis are delicious as a starter. For dessert, the gateau de doce de leite com sorvete de tapioca (like a molten chocolate cake except molten dulce de leche) is a must.

We had a great experience at Gula Gula. Quick service and great food. We especially enjoyed the pastries appetizer, the shredded beef salad, and, most importantly, the desert! The caramel pie with tapioca ice cream desert was AMAZING!!!

I stopped in here to get a quick, healthy dinner on a week-night. Delighted by the salad and pie combo - I got a pesto-pasta-chicken salad and cheese quiche. The lemon meringue pie was the highlight of my visit, delicious!

Reasonably priced good quality food with several vegetarian options. Not too busy even on a Friday night so you can walk in and get a table. Good service.

It has other options but when I go to Gula Gula I prefer the salads for a quick meal after the beach or a quick lunch when I don't have much time. It is a gourmet salad bar but not a proper gourmet restaurant.
