With the city sitting pretty on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, it should come as no surprise that Rio de Janeiro seafood restaurants are both plentiful and high quality.
Seafood lovers in Rio de Janeiro can find something to suit all tastes and budgets, from the exclusive, upscale Fasano Al Mar to the cheap and cheerful pavement cafes that make up 'Sardine Alley' in Centro.
A good mid-range option is Sobrenatural, up in the hills of Santa Teresa, where portions are generally large enough for two. Siri Mole & Cia, meanwhile, is an excellent seafood restaurant whose new branch on the sands of Copacabana is the perfect spot for post-beach dining.
