1. Re: cost of restaurants in Brazil

For mid-range restaurants in Rio, about $45 U.S.

For first-timers to Rio not particularly familiar with Brazilian food, a good option is having a meal at one of the por kilo buffet-style restaurants. There are quite a few of them in the city.

Temperarte, for example, has several locations in Copacabana.


For about $20 U.S. (somewhat more for the larger tourist-oriented por kilos), it’s possible to sample a great variety of Brazilian specialties, including feijoada, codfish, beef, duck, shrimp, and numerous vegetable dishes, along with more familiar salads and desserts.

Usually the food is all the same cost per weight, but occasionally por kilos will charge a bit more for churrasco (barbeque) and fancy desserts.
