Excellent healthy, varied organic food
Posted on 01 / 06 / 2013
There's not much I can say about this place to add to the reviews that have already been written here. The food is great and there feels to be something there for everyone.. the variety is so good that we ran out of stomach room to try it all, so we're headed there again tomorrow. Most of the flavourings are quite subtle, so if you're accustomed to stronger tastes you may be better off at Universo Organico in Leblon (but be prepared to pay for that!). The healthfulness of Refeitorio Organico felt superior to Universo Organico though if for no other reason than for the huge variety. We were lucky in that a girl who spoke fluent English happened to be on the staff when we went, so she explained the system to us. We stocked up on desserts and had them for breakfast the next morning - they were really yummy! (do be aware that they cost extra though)
The vibe was bustling and yet at the same time alternative, which was a mix that we liked - being in a room filled with likeminded people is always nice. We noticed statues around that looked a bit Buddhist - very aesthetically calming.
All in all, this variety, this healthfulness, and organic, all at this price? Can't beat it.
