Respond to Review of Bio Carioca
Review: On the last day of our 4 day trip to Rio, we went to this lovely restaurant in Copacabana. At first it was a bit intimidating because it was not the typical buffet restaurant that we had experienced all over Brazil. One of the wait staff gave us a menu and tried to explain in Portuguese what it all had. There were various dishes displayed in the show case each identified with a name. We had quickly confirmed with the waiter (through the piece of papaer in local language I always carry) that everything was vegetarian. But bten I saw a sign saying some items may have ova (eggs). Just then, a beautiful young woman walks up to us and starts speaking in English. At first we thought she worked there, then realized she was a customer who had just finished her meal and seeing our language problem , spent the next 15 minutes explaining everything in English. Bottom line..... after numerous buffet meals all over Brazil, we were glad to have an ala carte meal that almost seemed like fine dining! Between the 2 of us, we tried 6 different items, and each was flavorful and reasonably priced. This was one of the best meals during our 2 weeks in Brazil.
