Description: QUITÉRIA Located on leafy Rua Maria Quitéria, a cross street off Ipanema beach, the restaurant is specialised in Brazilian dishes that utilises fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, prepared by Chef Alejandra Maidana. The relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant, which was designed by local architect Bel Lobo, is a reference to the Tropical modernism Era, with comfortable chairs by award winning designer Sérgio Rodrigues. The site specific installation created by visual artist Gisele Camargo draws attention to the open plan kitchen, where the dishes are finalised. It is an experience of its own. DRINKS The QUITÉRIA offers a concise but sophisticated wine list, that will pair to your choice of dishes harmoniously. Here you are able to enjoy classic cocktails prepared by our bar attendants, who are masters in classic and signature caipirinhas made with fresh fruits from this season.

Dear Pascal,
We appreciate the wonderful comments about your recent experience here at QUITÉRIA.
It was a pleasure to welcome you to our restaurant. Our menu created by executive chef Alejandra Maidana with a more conscious, sustainable and fresh menu proposal. For this we are working with producers of the region, organic products and the least industrialized possible, guaranteeing fresh and healthy ingredients! Our proposal is to have a Brazilian menu, with a carioca soul and a fair price!
The staff at QUITÉRIA was flattered by the compliments on their visit, especially the Hauan who appreciates the highlight. Thank you very much for giving us such a gratifying return and recommending our restaurant.
We look forward to seeing you here at QUITERIA!
With my best regards,
Gabriela Oliveira

One of the best meals I had in Rio de Janeiro! Chef driven and beautifully prepared dinner. The head chef is a women from Argentina and the guest chef was Bel Coelho from São Paolo. Finally a restaurant that puts women at the forefront!Amazing blends of spices and different textures in each course. Colorful, tasteful and extremely satisfying. I’d make it a point to have dinner in this intimate modern restaurant.

In the menu we work mainly with Brazilian products, mostly organic and local producers, so that we always have a fresh and conscious menu to offer, guaranteeing a Brazilian experience and uncomplicated gastronomy!

Good atmosphere and our waiter Hauan was very attentive and helpful and also spoke good English. The air-conditioning was turned up quite high so it was quite cool but was adjusted when we asked. Good sized portions, especially the starters with Brazilian style food. Professionally run with quality staff

I had lunch here today and would say everything was excellent: from ambience, music, staff (speaking good English too), great quality food (I had catch of the day snapper), and dessert (fruit salad with a beautiful presentation). Highly recommended

Quiteria is a cozy restaurant located in the heart of Ipanema, simply and well decorated. Rio is a fantastic place, but good simple Brazilian food is difficult to find here. Quiteria definetly fulfills this niche. We had the market salad and the Acarajé to share, almost fought for each others portion:-)! Then as main dish we choose the maket fish and the grilled octopus, the latter was as good as what we can have in any hidden tavern in a Greek island, made to perfection really. My fish was also delicious, and I normally do not like fish in any restaurant if it is not having my feet in the sand... all that served with a nice bottle of a not that expensive French white wine. For desert the pudim de tapioca... definetly will come back! I really recommend the place.
