Ekko's is a wonderful buffet option in the Botafogo Area: it offers good, fresh food with a nice selection changing daily. one small detail is the lack of flexibility in answering to customers requests: a simple juice ingredients exchange is not allowed, even tho everything is made fresh and to order. All in all a very good option.

This particular restaurant has very nice food, good service and it is... More

Ekko's has one of the best qualities in a restaurant: regularity. I go there at least 10 times a year for some years now, and I always get the same great service and delicious food. The restaurant is located in a renovated "sobrado" - as the residential two-story houses of the colonial times were called. The decoration kept some of... More

Staying in Botafogo

Neighbourhood Profile
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, an art museum that showcases amazing artists from Latin America, is a must see located in a historical building in Botafogo.
