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

Really enjoyed it here. Service was good...not too rushed which we like. The decor was funky. The food and drink was excellent. The menu is unusual to say the least.

Miam Miam boasts a nice, fashionable atmosphere, perfect for a second visit Saturday night outing. Service is perhaps slightly on the slow side, with wine coming around 20 minutes after being ordered, and glasses following another 5 minutes later, but no matter, Saturday night is relaxing time. For starters we had the roast beef-stuffed rocket leaves, which was actually rather... More

Miam miam is a little out of the way an off the tourist trail, but worth the effort. It is in Botafogo, and on a street which isnt full of restaurants but a taxi driver with the address shouldn't have much trouble finding it. The restaurant itself is a little bit self-conscious in that its striving to be hip a... More

This was my second time there and it has not changed much. I like their ambiance and the friendly service. It is a very good place for a romantic dinner. The portions are not huge, which I like and they combine interesting flavors. I was happy to see that they still had the crunchy shrimp with the cilantro sorbet and... More

They have fixed menus for lunch where you can choose, for example, one main dish + a salad buffet or other similar combinations, at a reasonable price. Nice service. The place is really nice with a vintage touch.

Very dark place, mismatched decor. Long wait for a table. Capable staff, attentive and knowledgeable. Just a few choices of appetizers and main courses. Food is good, although portions are small. Prices are not. It is worth a one time visit, not a return.
