Quitéria
Costela Prime with Caviar de Berinjela

Diners averse to hotel restaurants should put their prejudices to one side for the night - Quitéria is one of the finest restaurants in Rio.

Chef Christian Garcia, who grew up in Argentina, Spain and Italy, constructs exquisite dishes which are as gorgeous to look at as they are to eat. There are five- and seven-course tasting menus, as well as an excellent à la carte menu with a strong use of Brazilian ingredients such as pirarucu, jiló and pupunha. 

The highlighted dish is a dreamily tender hunk of prime rib, surrounded by an ossobuco and port jus so rich and concentrated that you may be tempted to ask for a spoon!

Quitéria achieves that rare thing in Rio - consistently excellent fine dining at a price that won't break the bank. A lot is made of the restaurant's elegant design, but the superb food and excellent value for money should be the real talking points.
