Ristorante Torninha

Reviewed By MHSV_MG - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Torninha offers a refined, interesting and elaborate menu. Pasta features high in the menu, but you can get all types of meat as well. The dessert menu is worth special mention, with very creative swwets. The wine list is excellent and service is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.

Restaurante Olimpo

Reviewed By MHSV_MG - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

I visited Olimpo recently with my wife and a couple of friends. I found the location excellent, the facilities very good and the menu very enticing. The selection of dishes was excellent, enough to please anyone. I ordered the Sole and my wife went for the Gnocchi with Bacalhau. Both dishes were well prepared and presented. The Sole was also the choice of one of our friends, whilst the other had a steak, and equally enjoyed their choices. We had no desserts, although the options on offers seemed very good, but opted for coffees to keep the calories down. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Familia Paludo Restaurante

Reviewed By Chimera702

Paludo is spilt into 2 restaurants, on one side is Gourmet, where you can get a ticket "all you can eat" style buffet, on the other is Familia, where an a la carte menu is served.
Familia has a nice atmosphere, where its a cross between an art gallery, and a nice quiet sit down meal. There is quite often live music, but it's normally very quiet background music, so it's not in your face!
The food itself is really tasty.
The starters are huge, and are easily enough to share amongst a group of friends, and in a way, that's quite a nice thing to do. Steaks and burgers are definite winners here.
The wine list isn't extensive, they tend to prefer cocktails here, but the Malbec was brilliant with our steaks that appeared to be half a cow on a plate.
All in all, a really good experience that was fairly cheap, with a nice atmosphere and a great meal out.

Verdanna Grill

Reviewed By heaim8 - Hangzhou, China

Verdanna's "rodízio" is pretty good, considering the price tag of a little less than 60 reais (October 2015) for dinner it's an excellent value. Drinks and anything on the menu are on the expensive side though.
Meats are good, although there's not a lot of variety, same with the buffet, which offers limited options. Service is great, staff is always very friendly.
I do like this place and recommend it, it is not the greatest "Churrascaria" you'll ever visit, but it's relatively cheap and does it's job well!

Cervejaria Noi

Reviewed By aje302 - Bogota, Colombia

This place is located in San Francisco where you have many restaurant options. We decided to go into Noi just because it looked nice from the outside. The place is very nice, seems clean and new. You have an outside patio where you can enjoy the sunset and there's also Seating inside with AC. The menu is big and filled with good options. We ordered some appetizers and the we shared a salad (not very hungry). The food seemed very expensive (49 reales for a salad $15 USD). The beer was very good and they had lots of options. The staff did not speak english of spanish but still made a big effort to serve us, they were very friendly. Good place to visit if you are in Niteroi.

Gruta de Santo Antonio

Reviewed By Luiggi-Campany

We asked for a shrimp rice and it was very delicious. The place is located near downtown Niteroi and it doesn't offer parking. You have to park in the street or use the valet parking service. The meals are for two but the price is over average that's why I think it was good to eat once there but I won't plan to come back.

Since we found this place last September we have been coming here almost once a month religiously. Outstanding quality, delicate preparation and a delicious array of scrumptious dishes (seafood parpadel is my favorite). Always a guaranteed choice for dinner.

Paludo Gourmet

It is next door of Paludo Familia - Nitreroi that you have listed, but it is totally different Restaurant. With the best steak I have ever eaten. And the seafo, seafood basket done with parmezan cheese is to die for!!!! They have several Restaurants, Paludo Gourmet, Queen Jardim, Queen Pizza, Icaro. And I would like to comment on them. Thanks

Reviewed By Texirican - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Paludo Gourmet is along Orla do Gourmet of Niteroi.....there are two Paludos restaurants - one is the gourmet - left side (when facing retaurants) and the Family (self-serve/kilo) retaurant on the right side.
Gourmet experience was excellent start to finish. Head waiter of Paludo Gourmet is ver y knowledgeable of their extensive wine list and assisted us with a spectacular bottle of red from Chile. Steak was cooked perfectly and had a baked potato with all the trimmings with steak - a rarity in Brasil. Service could not have been better and food was superior - yes, you will pay a bit extra but the few reais more is worth the superb experience - go for it -

Seu Antonio

Reviewed By Luiggi-Campany

In my opinion this is one of the best restaurants in Niteroi. They have excellent seafood dishes, and the plates are for two or more. Arrive early because there are huge lines for the lunch on weekends. If you cannot help arriving about noon, don't worry, you can have a seat outside and start having some drink and good appetizers. My recommendation is "bolinho de bacalhau", made from craps with codfish.

Refeição dentro do razoável.
Restaurante pequeno. Em dado momento de nossa refeição, o garçom nos solicitou uma troca para outra mesa de forma a acomodar pessoas que chegavam. Ficamos surpresos com a solicitação. Faltou tato, sensibilidade e alguma coisa de respeito com quem ocupava seu local e fazia sua refeição.
Fora isso, tudo normal.
