Five Star Restaurants in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is fast catching up with famously cosmopolitan Sao Paulo in the sophisticated dining stakes, and Rio de Janeiro's five star restaurants are now up there with the best that its rival city has to offer.

The top flight restaurants of Rio de Janeiro take in a multitude of nationalities - French and Italian cuisine features highly, while seafood is also excellent at the best Rio de Janeiro restaurants.

Our number one Rio de Janeiro restaurant pick, Olympe, offers sophisticated French cuisine courtesy of acclaimed chef Claude Troisgros, while Marius Carnes is the place to come if you want to feast on unlimited organic meats and a staggering array of seafood.

Fine dining in Rio de Janeiro can often be found at the city's top restaurants - Cipriani at Copacabana Palace, Le Pre Catalan at Sofitel Rio and Fasano Al Mar at Fasano Rio being three elegant cases in point.

Five star restaurants in Rio de Janeiro often enjoy five-star views, whether it's of the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema or, as at Aprazivel in Santa Teresa, sweeping views of the city centre and Guanabara Bay.

Be warned, fine dining in Rio de Janeiro does not come cheap - if you want to eat at the city's best restaurants, you'll need a healthy budget as well as a healthy appetite. One restaurant that does offer top-notch cuisine at a relatively high price tag is Miam Miam, tucked away in a tiny white building in Botafogo.
