This traditional family-owned restaurant, whose menu is focused on codfish and seafood is located in Niterói, a small city that’s about thirty minutes by car from Rio (crossing through the famous Rio-Niteroi bridge). It’s worth the drive for the expertly prepared salted codfish. Diners sit in a Portuguese inspired room and can choose among 18 different preparations of the traditional dish, along with great wine options from the extensive list. There's a local vibe and cosy feel to the place. Come on a Saturday to escape the weekday commuter traffic, and visit the contemporary MAC Museum, designed by the late Oscar Niemeyer, and the historic forts, many of which have incredible views. Reservations recommended. Lunch only Sunday to Wednesday.
