We visited here and the food was awful - tasted terrible

Good prices, nice staff, ok decoration, and the food is very tasteful! You gave a good number of options there but I suggest the pizza, the couvert, the feijoada on saturdays and the "medalhão" with piamontese rice.

Regular food, loud place... I consider it too expensive for what it is offered.

La Mole is not the kind of Italian restaurant where Italians will recognise the menu or the taste. Having said that, the food is very tasty and the prices are sensible. Make sure you try the couvert or one of the definitely not Italian steak/churrasco...More

Restaurant chain, varied cuisine style with several branches in Rio. Great service and good food (have been better, now I found it greasy and more expensive than it used to be). The highlight remains the traditional anti-pasti.

In recent years, Botafogo has become one of the
hottest neighbourhoods in Rio. It hosts many modern
restaurants with contemporary food and many venues to
listen to rock and electronic music. Its numerous bars
and pubs make this area a great choice for anyone
interested in a great nightlife experience - in fact,
some bars in the area are open all night. Casa Daros,
