Yumê Restaurant

Yumê is by far the best, sofisticated and more traditional Japanese restaurant in the Jardim Botânico´s area. Just as the name Yumê suggests (Yumê in Japanese means "To Dream”), when you pass through the doors of the ancient mansion, at Rua Pacheco Leão, you enter a dream world, from the charming atmosphere to the savory delicacies that are prepared for you. These are some of the characteristics that make of Yumê the most charming Japanese restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. It is an experience you won’t forget! 

Your dream continues as you are served sumptuous creations from the Nippon´s gastronomy, from our kitchen, catered to by our courteous and attentive staff.  Many popular Japanese dishes are available, such as the Nori de Manga with Salmon Roe, approved by the singer Madonna, or try filmmaker Steven Spielberg´s favorite, Mini Octopus. 

This charming restaurant offers two dining ambiances, where the Japanese cultural atmosphere is always present. 

You can dine in candlelight, at the Space Zen, in the garden dining room, which also has a retractable ceiling that lets the sun shine in during the day, and a real Japanese-style carp pool  full of live ornamental carps, or dine in the Bar and Salon, which are brighter areas, more suitable for casual and family events.

The restaurant recreates the customs of the oriental tradition, which makes you want to take off your shoes and dine in the traditional Japanese style, sitting on the mat.

Yumê Restaurant opens daily and provides a menu with various options among starters, as combined makimonos, sashimi, sushi, Temaki, teppan yaki, à la carte, and your dining experience wouldn´t be complete without trying our desserts, created by our pastry chef. 

Sample a wine from our admirable wine list, which the famous North American Jonathan Nossiter, oenologist and film maker, helped us create.
