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.

At least for me, "Quitéria" is a new and more than welcome restaurant at the very affluent Ipanema quarter in Rio de Janeiro. I cannot write about its buffet lunch or à la carte dinner, as we were there last May, on an early evening, for drinks and appetizers - just a happy hour among old friends. Service was friendly, a modern and clean décor (with an open kitchen) and more than adequate drinks. As appetizers, we took the mini "acarajés" and the "tapioca" chease cubes. As both are fried, they are a bit greasy, what may be a problem if you are on any kind of diet or medical restriction. But, just give it a break and enjoy "Quitéria". Bon Appétit!

We had an early evening meal of excellent food broadly Brazilian in nature. The service was good, with good English spoken. The kitchen is open to the restaurant which added some (calm) theatre.

An absolute must go if you want to enjoy excellent food and a lovely chill vibe in Rio. The staff is super friendly and helpful. From the beetroot/goat cheese ravioli (see photo) to the fish moqueca to the grilled octopus with mashed yam potatoes, everything had the wow factor.

What a great way to celebrate our first night in Rio! The food was fresh, local, organic and infused with flavor. Each bite was bliss and our server not only spoke excellent English, he was incredibly warm and welcoming! Two (make that three, thumbs up:-)

Modern twists on Brazilian classic dishes, complimented by excellent caipirinhas and a professional and enthusiastic staff. In particular, the tapioca fritters and muqueca (seafood stew) were superb.
