The newest location on Av. Atlantica 3880. This place has great decor and atmosphere. We waited awhile for a table but were offered a place at the bar if we wanted. It's tapas, so go with the idea to try and share a few things....More

Tapas are decent, wine & sangria are moderate in quality & price... but the location makes for great people-watching and friendly conversation.

Really enjoyed atmosphere. Food was good. Go with a couple of friends, order some sangria either red, white or cava and just enjoy.

Nice place to grab a bite and a sangria.... alhough it is a franchise , it doesnt seem like the typical franchise.

Brilliant tapas dishes, with fantastic wine! However you will definitely have to wait to get a table here as it's very small. A must if you are in Rio!

The tapas were nice. But the sangria was very dissapointing. The tapas cost about 25-30 reals which is quite exy. We actually came to have paella but they cook it only 5 pm. That was dissapointing. For me no reason to come back.

Dropped into Venga for lunch during our time in Rio and the food was excellent. Our group of 4 shared a range of tapas and everything was very tasty - if you visit the chocolate mousse with sea salt is a must!

Venga Leblon is a cosy place, very small it accommodates about 40 people in a charming street in Leblon. The sangria is very refreshing and the food is great. I definitely would return!

Description
¡Venga! is the first Spanish tapas bar in Rio de Janeiro. Opened in 2009, it soon became a reference in the gastronomy of the city.

Its concept was developed based on the identification of the Carioca spirit with the culture of the tapas, which are one of the most social ways of eating, always in small portions and sharing several dishes between friends or family.

In addition, the possibility of tasting several options at the same time makes the tapas one of the most eclectic gastronomic experiences.
