I really didn't know what to expect since we did not understand the menu, but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the grilled sole with mushrooms, shrimp and capers. It was a large portion for two people and it was quite tasty. Nice and close to the grand Hyatt where we were staying.

If you like luxus, you won t find it here. It is a simple restaurant by the sea. The waiters have not been adequately trained. But the food is so good! Try the Grilled Pintado with cheese sauce and you will love it!

Toca de Traira has two locations. The one we dined at is on the main road along the beach in the Barra de Tijuca section of Rio. away from the main part of the city; known for clean beaches and high-rise condos (other location is in Jacarepagua). The more informal restaurant/bar next door was crowded with people watching a soccer... More
