One of the most traditional and upscale restaurants of Rio de Janeiro, with exceptional seafood. The shrimps are amazing. Nevertheless could use some redecorating with a more contemporary design.

Antiquarius is one of the most traditional high end restaurants in Rio. It's the place to go if you're looking for authentic Portuguese food - 5 stars service all in a special old school style. It's not a cheap place. It considering the ridiculous price...More
