What: An old local fish restaurant in Barra de Guaratiba, an hour and a half away from Rio de Janeiro. You need a rental car to reach this place. Come here for lunch or dinner if you are exploring the area outside Rio.
Food: You don’t have to choose what you eat. They serve you different (tapas style) fish dishes, so you get to taste everything they have. The dishes are ultra fresh and a perfect way to get to know some local specialties.
Atmosphere & design: As the restaurant lies in a little town, don’t expect to find crowds of people sitting next to you. Normally I hate plastic chairs, but here it all fits in the local charm. Find a little boat, an anchor and other sea elements as decoration on the walls.
Insiders tip: Drive around in the neighbourhood of the restaurant. The nature is pretty amazing here: beautiful bays (including – yes, also beautiful – surfers).
