The entrance of the building looks small but when we enter Cais do Oriente the atmosphere is amazing. It has a patio in the back and it's very nice. On Sundays they have a "chorinho" band after 1 PM.
I went there twice. The first time with my parents, we had the "rabada". The second time, I went with a friend and we had a steak. Both dishes were delicious.
Moreover the staff was cordious and attentive.
Prices are a little high but it was worth it. It is a good place to have lunch while turisting in downtown Rio.

Thank Refrota

The food was excellent. The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to make us comfortable with our complete lack of Portuguese. Can highly recommend.

I repeat over and over again this restaurant, not only because is charming but also because staff is very attentive and food is awesome.
It is located in downtown , old part of the city, so you can feel the atmosphere of Rio in XIX centuries just before the Monarchy was swept out from Brazil, shifting to a Republic.
The Menu is very contemporary and friendly, Vegetarians can get couple of choices there.
Highly recommended.

Went there for dinner with friends, the place wasn't very busy and as it was raining we couldn't sit in the back which looks quite beautiful.
Had the pupunha and later the salad with goat cheese, both delicious and served by a very franco friendly waiter. Definitely worth returning.
