International cuisine with a flavour of Río
Even the most demanding of palates will be spoiled for choice in Rio de Janeiro, with to its diverse range of restaurants offering traditional recipes from around the world. One of the finest and most luxurious is Le Pre Catelan (www.leprecatelan.com.br), in Hotel Sofitel Rio Palace on Avenida Atlântica in Copacabana. You can enjoy its French cuisine, with their unusual Brazilian touch, whilst enjoying the views and live music until midnight. Traditional Portuguese dishes are also very present in the city’s streets. In the Lapa neighbourhood, Cosmopolita on Travessa do Mosqueira, and Adega Flor de Coimbra (www.adegaflordecoimbra.com.br) on Teotônio Regadas Street, are two options, both with a bohemian touch and interesting background music. The Glòria neighbourhood is home to Casa Da Suíça (www.casadasuica.com.br), the main place to go for Swiss cuisine in Río de Janeiro. Founded in 1956 and managed by some of the most famous Swiss chefs, its excellent customer service and affordable prices make it famous amongst most of the locals. Meanwhile, for risotto fans, an obligatory stop on the map is Provence Bistrot, on Praia do Flamengo, for its exclusive Italian and French specialities and excellent wine list.
