Costelao do Cadeg

Cuisines: Brazilian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 November 2016

The ambiente is very hot during the summer, the waiters are little rude, and the prices are extremely incompatible with the quality of the food offered. I and my family have asked for 2 kinds of codfish (during a coodfish festival there in Cadeg) and everybody were sure that the side dishes was not fresh and was done long before. Its inadmissible pay a lot for a reheated food. I will never back there again and i do not recomend.

The prices are ok, Lots of foods on the menu, not only ribs. I actually didn´t eat ribs. The service is ok. The atmosphere is not fancy, it is a municipal market so don´t expect fancy restaurants there. The dishes are big, so you can share.

If you are looking for a fancy restaurant, with good china and all that stuff, this is not the place. It is not in the touristic usual area, and it is located in a food market - a real one, where retailers buy their stuff.
But if you're willing to explore a little more, here you will find wonderfull confort food.
It is a lot of food, so beware when you order - but the waiters will honestly give you some advica, if it's too much. A problem - they certainly do not speak english.

Is very well-located restaurant (in a sort of central market for distribution of food), and the food is really good. Every dish of ribs is a correct choice, be it the rice with ribs (risotto), be it properly the ribs with side dishes.

Ok. So you want to go to a place where you'll only see locals and is not located in the "south zone" of Rio? You might want to try this place. Don't expect great ambiance, because it's in the middle of the huge central market that supplies Rio with all the vegetables, fruit, flowers and other goods you can imagine. On weekdays it's extremely busy and noisy, and on weekends it gets quite crowded with visitors from all parts of Rio. I've just been there with my family and had a good time, partly because my expectations were low. The costela no bafo ( ribs ) were very good, tender and really tasty. I don't recommend the pastel de costela (rib pastry). It was very greasy. Anyway, the ribs for two people were more than enough for three. We ordered rice, onion rings and salad together with the meal.
If you're lucky, your waiter will be Geovanni. He comes from the south of Brazil and is a very pleasant guy. Extremely polite and attentive, which was a surprise because you usually don't expect such good service in a place like this. The whole expirience, with wine, desert and espresso cost me the equivalent to US$ 100,00. Worth it.
