Centro Restaurants in Rio de Janeiro

Restaurants in Centro, Rio de Janeiro are often overlooked in favour of those closer to the beach, but downtown Rio is home to some excellent food, and some very lively drinking and dining experiences.

Rio locals love their post-work 'Happy Hour' drinking and dining, and Centro is the perfect spot to watch them at play. Our number one pick, Amarelinho, serves hearty portions of traditional Brazilian food at a prime peopl-watching spot at the heart of Cinelandia; while Beco das Sardinhas is a lively spot to enjoy what is known as "chicken of the sea" - fried sardines.

Restaurants in Lapa, the party district of Rio de Janeiro, are great places to warm up for a night painting the town red, and Rua do Lavradio is packed with sidewalk bars and restaurants housed in handsome colonial buildings.

For an forgettable Rio restaurant experience, book a table at Scenarium, and take in the ultra-skilled dancers as they samba across the dancefloor.
