Widely renowned as the best French restaurant – if not the best restaurant, period – in Rio, Olympe offers immaculately prepared food in sophisticated yet welcoming surrounds. The kitchen is headed up by Claude Troisgras, a member of the multi-award-winning French family of chefs and something of a local celebrity in Rio. Troisgras has created a menu of inventive dishes that give a distinctly carioca twist to French classics, and the dishes, which start at around R$60, are well worth the money.
