Rio De Janeiro Restaurant Guide

The quintessential Rio dining experience is eating "rodizio" (or all-you-can-eat) style in one of the many meat focused "churrascarias." There are numerous restaurants in the city where platters of delicious grilled meats and sides are brought to your table until you say "no more!" Most of these popular establishments feature expansive salad bars as well. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices for a satisfying lunch. There are many other dining choices in this international city as well, but while in Rio, you must try feijoada, a dish of black beans and pork served with rice, and pair it with a caipirinha, a typical Brazilian cocktail made of sugar cane rum, lime and sugar. Here are some recommended restaurants to sample typical or interesting cuisine in the city:
