Heard very good things of this place. Went for dinner on a Friday night. The place has about 10 tables in the bar area and most of their tables in the back. The back area was closed. They had one waiter and another gentleman that seemed to be the Manager or owner. Ordered dinner. Duck Risotto. Arrived glazed as if it had been heated in the microwave and the duck was rubberry and hard. I returned the dish and the Chef came to apologize, quite embarassed. Since I had guests I did not want to create a situation and ordered something else, otherwise I would have given up. Nothing to write home about.

We came there around 9pm and were full of enthusiasm after we read the reviews on tripadvisor. We were so dissapointed. The staff didnt understand English and we had to explain twice What we have ordered to two different waiters because they kept missunderstanding our order. when the food finally came it was really bad, overcooked and tasted like can-food! We couldnt eat the whole dish. The good thing was that we didnt have to pay for one dish because we sent it all back. Fail!

For almost two weeks we've seen this restaurant every day while walking to the beach. We decided to give it a try and it's been a very good dinner overall. Good food, good people, good choice of wine by the glass and nice atmosphere.

We recommend Vieira Souto!

Great atmosphere, refined food and superb hospitality. Host was well informed concerning wines and other drinks. Easily accessible from Ipanema or Copacabana.

All plates on the menu are exceptional, each with their simplicity and diversity that you don't find anywhere in Rio
