We had dinner here a few nights ago. It was great to be able to have such an extensive vegan menu in a city that isn't known for such options. Saying that, the food was good, but not great. The staff weren't unfriendly, but not overly gracious either. But we had a good meal, including dessert, which is a welcome treat. And the location is good as there are a few outdoor patio bars right next door if you want to grab a drink after.

Small diner, offers an organic wine we really enjoyed. Nice vegan/vegetarian selection. A bit pricey for what you get though. Only one table outside and right off the street.

This place is a small cafe style diner in Leblon. As it's the most expensive suburb in Rio, the prices are bit on the steep side too, though I was still grateful for some veggoe nosh!

You can expect to pay RL30 for an all-you-can-eat vegan buffet with about 5 choices. Drinks and dessert are extra. Food was okay, not exceptional.

This restaurant blew me away - I ate here twice in one weekend because it was so good. This place differentiates itself by adapting traditional Brazilian dishes (i.e. feijoada, stroganoff, dobradinha, purê de abobora, etc.) for a vegan diet. They use (smoked!) tofu, gluten, etc in place of meat. The flavor is very authentic. Their freshly prepared juices / smoothies are also delicous--I tried a ginger / lemon / white raisin juice that was surprisingly tasty.

I ate there on Saturday and Sunday and lunch was buffet-style: a mixture of cold salad dishes and a several hot entree / side dishes. First restaurant I've eaten at in Rio or Sao Paulo that serves quinoa. Looks like the other days of the week and for dinner they have an la carte style menu.

The restaurant itself is pretty small and with simple decor, but definitely worth going for the food. They also sell some natural goods such as juices, organic snacks, etc.

After a long flight, the jet lag affects my stomach, so a large steak is not a good choice. So I searched and found this restaurant via Google. I have been back on numerous occasions and I have yet to be disappointed. Very tasty for Vegan cuisine and I recommend taking the buffet combined with one of the many selection of fresh juices available.
