  • I loved the location. You arrive on site with an uber, take a van/motorcycle (5 dollars), leave nearby, a child usually appears to take up bar/restaurant and receive a tip. There you can dazzle with the landscape, great place to take pictures of Rio de Janeiro, admire the beauty of nature. Has a good service. Serving lunch, snacks, drinks (loved the caipirinhas), live music, can dance if the shame of the way. In place for beautiful rooms for those who want to stay. In front of the bar of the slab. By nightfall the photos are beautiful. Super secure site. To go, take a van or bike (5 dollars) and down to the entrance of the Vidigal, there you call an uber, that is super fast. Super indico!

  • Yesterday, Sunday 18/02 had the privilege of lunch at Mirante do Arvrao. We were very well received by Daniel, introduced us to the best suite, the other apts, and any environment, those who know the place, you know that words fail to describe such beauty. The lounge and the Atlantic Rainforest next, is a really nice scenario, where enjoyed a great lunch. I cannot fail to mention the great service the waitress Janaína, congratulations on professional. The pagode band cheered the audience, leaving the environment happier still. Oh, with cold beer, the deal was pagodear. We will return!!!

  • At the top of the Morro do Vidigal's Mirante do famous Arvrão. A location within the favela showing contours below and with the sea in the background. The most beautiful Sunrise I saw was from there. It's worth the adventure of climbing of taxi. For the descent has a van near the UPP at the beginning of the street.

  • View is amazing, service at the bar is nota só great, the waiter was a bit lost and understaffed. The beer and food were good but pricy.
  • Stunning views of Rio. There is a lovely bar and hostel. Great atmosphere. Live music. I felt completely safe, however I must say that I was there with a group of friends including one who has been living there for over 2 years. I walked alone to the shops in the streets to look for freshly prepared Açaí sorbet and was welcomed by friendly people. Great experience. I recommend going but of course be streetwise.
  • Top linda vista
  • Bar MT caro do local.
  • Wonderful place for happy hour.
