Brazilians adore children, and kid-friendly restaurants in Rio de Janeiro are refreshingly easy to find.
Chidren will be welcomed at all but the stuffiest of five-star restaurants, and an advance phone is normally all it takes to arrange kid-friendly extras such as high chairs.
Some of the best restaurants for families visiting Rio de Janeiro's are the city's Churrascarias (all you can eat meat grills), which combine vast buffet spreads with slice after slice of top-quality meat. Our top kid-friendly Rio restaurant pick, Porcao, is arguably the best Churrascaria in the city for families, while Carretao is another quality choice which, at around half the price of Porcao, represents excellent value for money.
Meanwhile, up in the hills of Santa Teresa, the popular Bar do Arnaudo serves portions of Northwestern food so hearty that even the largest of families of four can eat well without making much of a dent in the travel budget.
