Antiquarius in Leblon is the original restaurant. There is also the Antiquarius Grill in Barra da Tijuca, however, it is located in a shopping mall and lacks the flair of the original restaurant. The menu is focused on seafood, but also has a few good steak dishes. I recommend the grilled seafood dish which provides as good selection of fresh... More

By far our worst dining experience in rio. Was excited for good portugese Brazilian food and instead got largely ignored while dining on overlooked, tough lobster. Staff forgot about us as Friday night got busy in the restaurant. This place seems vastly overrated and overpriced. My wife's moqueca was good. Not a good experience. Try olympe, satricon and oro for... More

I wanted to make sure that I wrote a review because before we left for dinner, I started freaking out about how much dinner was going to cost after reading others' reviews. By U.S. standards, this restaurant is not outrageously expensive if you are accustomed to fine dining. Our bill was $188USD for a bottle of wine, bottled water, one... More

I visited the restaurant in Barra Shopping mall, not the one in Leblon. It is a very nice restaurant to be in a shopping mall. The atmosphere is not like a mall at all. The service was great, the menu substantial and the food was prepared perfectly. It really was a great meal but the prices are quite high. This... More

We arrived at 8 PM for our reservation and were promptly seated and offered cocktails. We found the wine list to nave many good selections and priced fairly. Our finger foods started arriving almost immediately-1 total of about 8 different selections which we later discovered were billed as an add-on. Be cautious of this both for the reason that you...

If you want to eat Portuguese food, buy yourself a ticket to Lisbon, go there in the best local food restaurant, enjoy the beauties of the city, go for a good fado show. All this will cost you less than a meal for two in this dark and pretentious place. And you will have a much better dinner

Came here with girlfriend to celebrate her birthday . Pricey restaurant but good food. Be ready to spend ~ 100 dollars per person . Couvert was good and plentiful . Main course shrimp champagne was pretty average . Shrimp and sauce was delicious but rice was simple, plain . Great atmosphere. Worth a visit for a great time in good... More

This was recommended by writer in Lonely Planet Rio de Janeiro 8th edition. Also, the concierge highly recommended it too at JW Marriott! Just be fore warn this place is pricey and dress attire required. Dining tables have fine Chinaware and majority staff speaks English. I recommend the Grilled Seafood or Grilled Shrimp entrees which we each had along with... More

Same high quality after 200 times visit. You can compare with the best Portuguese restaurant in Portugal and for sure Antiquarios will be listed in the top 5. My favorites are lamb leg with butter beans, seafood risotto (Cascais style), octopus with broccoli rice, lagareira codfish. Difficult to say what is the beat. Service is excellent. Don't forget to ask... More
