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.

I had heard a lot about Antiquarius, not least from my wife who ate at the SP branch 15 years ago and had what she says was the most amazing shrimp dish (camarao ao champagne). So we went. The place is ultra traditionally Portuguese in...More

My father told me he used to visit this place as a child with his family. A really beautiful place, decorated in Old Portuguese glamour with a strong historic influence. Fantastic service! We were treated to a selection of appetizers when we arrived. Traditional Portuguese...More
