The restaurant has excellent food and very good ambience. We had appetizers, main meal deserts. It was around 120-150 reais per person. My favorite there was the Duo de crostini and the arroz de porco! Excellent restaurant and great service. Will definitely come back. Highly recommend.

We come to Brazil to get away from things like hip restaurants with formica tables, but we heard from a friend that the food was excellent here. As indeed it was. We opted to share the five-course taster's menu and were not disappointed, generous portions and clever blending of ingredients. Very happy with this creative, unpretentious place.

The place was quite difficult to find even with a ubber and the gps. The place is like an old house, kind of dark place but with a good ambient. The food was excellent and the service great. Barzilian fusion food with a touch of Asian. The curry chicken banana was amazing. Great place for a couple.

I went with my wife to have dinner. The last time we´ve been there was about five years ago. The place is very cozy. It has a good value for the wines. The food is excellent. We had calamari for starters. My wife had pasta with beef and potatoes as the main course and I had the lamb. For desert... More

I was looking for a nice restaurant online and found some reviews about this place. I was not impressed by the outside appearance. But my impression changed when we entered the place. It is quite small but very well decorated. The food is wonderful and the service is really good. Looking forward to coming back!

Miam Miam was so good we went twice. We also went to their other restaurant OuiOui. It took 2 seconds for an English speaking waiter to be allocated to our table, and both times they were helpful and really friendly. Recommendations were made for dishes, that were fabulous. We particularly loved the prawns with 'heart of palm pasta', but all... More

Recommended by our hotel owner as somewhere he would take his wife for dinner when they went out. It was a fairly casual setting with very good interesting food. Our best meal in South America.

We stopped here while looking for a place to eat while switching from the Botofogo metro station to a bus. We were there late lunch time, so there were not many patrons, but service was prompt, undoubtedly in part because we were served by the owner's nephew who appeared to be in charge at lunchtime. Has the bare brick walls... More

My boyfriend and I visited here after reading great reviews. Despite the place being almost empty and 2 waiters walking around doing very little, we sat and waited for 10 minutes before deciding to find our own menus. The menus were difficult to understand and had no vegetarian options. After waiting a further 10 minutes my boyfriend tried to speak... More
