We literally just ate dinner at Resto. We were seated by the window, to me it felt like they were trying to make the restaurant look busy, but I was happy with the table so no complaints! We were drawn into the restaurant by reasonable prices and tasty sounding dishes, the menu was in English so it made is easy... More

All the salads and main dishes we had were excellent with a nice eyes catching presentation. In our last visit we had two very nice salads (Nana and Tátow) and the tuna main dish (Rei do Oceano) that were excellent and we can recomend. The prices are mid range for this type of restaurant in Ipanema were prices tend to... More

Excellent food and very good service. Actually perfect! Will definitely come back a few times... We went there as a couple and everything was delicious! Should definitely be in the top resturants of Rio!

This restaurant is not worth the visit. My husband and I were there for an evening meal expecting good food and a nice atmosphere as suggested in other reviews. Our food took forever to arrive and we noticed others also complaining around us about the same thing. My dish came overcooked and my husband's fish was completely tasteless. The food... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. We met up with another couple who was traveling in Rio, too. The restaurant accommodated us very easily, they were super patient and helped as best as they could wth the language barrier. Food and drinks were great! The neighborhood that this is in is super cute. Worth a visit!

Upon a strong recommendation, we went to Resto for dinner. Nice, friendly restaurant with decent food and great service. Smaller plate/appetizers are a great option. Did the food blow us away? No, but it is a comfortable restaurant that served its purpose while we watched the Olympics.

They do great drinks here (most nights) but the food like most places in Rio always arrives cold. Warm your plates before serving food would help. My pulled pork didn't have the pineapple or peppers on it and was Luke warm. My friends burger when the chips arrived they were stone cold. Have had a good steak here on another... More

The best part of Resto is definitely the environment. Nice and cozy restaurant in Ipanema. Having said that I was a little disappointed by the food. I find it ok but I was hoping for more.

Resto is a decent upscale restaurant with pleasing decor in an upscale neighborhood serving European cuisine. The upstairs is quieter but the service is better downstairs. Based on the strong recommendation of the waiter two of us ordered the duck with delicious baroa mashed potatoes. Along with the potatoes, you get a scrumptious glazed thigh and leg in a great...
