Visited twice whilst on holiday in Rio de Janeiro visiting some friends. Both friends were vegetarians so this place was great for them, but it was great for me as well with some meat options available too. A great place for me to try Brazilian...More

We’ve been coming here for as long as we’ve been coming to Rio. Natural has always been the place we fall back on when we get tired of the trendy, expensive, or otherwise dull options in the neighborhood. You can always count on a healthy...More

This is not a "gourmet" restaurant. It's good food for an affordable price. It has many options for vegetarians too. The only thing I know about this restaurant that makes some people not going there is that the proteins are not very well presented. But,...More

Had a hard time finding vegetarian fare that was lighter on cheese in Ipanema. This place is a kilo buffet on the side of a health food store. Mostly good vegetables and fruit in the buffet. They had beans and rice without the ubiquitous hunk...More

Interesting place to eat cheap. You get a plate and fill it with the food you want. At the end you weigh it and pay for weight. About 50 reals for kilo. Caipirinha is also available here. You can ask the waiter to make it...More

Per kilo buffet focused on vegetarian dishes with some vegan options as well as meats. Seasoning is Ayurvedic style and could feel bland for some. Bottles of shoyu and chili/garlic sauces are available. Pastries, fresh juices and coconut water are offered.

In a search for a vegetarian suitable restaurant in Rio, I came across this place on TA. It was an interesting place where you fill your plate and pay by weight. It was a bit difficult to find, as there is not a clear sign...More

I remember when Restaurante Natural first opened in Rio, several decades ago. It was something new--vegetarian!--and the place was very cute, with its brick walls. The New Natural looks nothing like it. It certainly lost the charm it had, and its spaces are a bit...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
