Praça Santos Dumont, 116 | Gávea | Brazilian Steakhouse
Sunday to Thursday from 11am to 1am
Friday and Saturday from 11am to 3am
There is a reason why this casual steakhouse is always packed with locals, with long lines at the door: the perfectly grilled steaks for reasonable prices. Very informal, the eatery is famous for its hearty picanha (rump steak) with broccoli rice, egg farofa and fries. But order first the linguiça na brasa (grilled pork sausage) as an appetizer along with some ice cold chope (draught beer). Located at Baixo Gávea, a very young and bohemian area, the restaurant is a great place to start the night, before moving to a bar or nightclub, or to eat after it, since it is open until late.
