You have a choice of eating in or take away ('para viagem'), and there's a great health food store tagged onto the side of this restaurant.

NileGuide Expert tip:
New Natural is a great spot for a snack or light lunch, but if you're on a budget it's not the place to come when you're absolutely ravenous. The food is priced by weight and, at nearly R$4 per 100 grams, you might find yourself spending more than you planned if you head here on an empty stomach.
New Natural is a fantastic health food buffet. It's largely veggie-friendly, with a lot of soy dishes, although chicken and fish do make an appearance. The nourishing and delicious soups, pastries and hot dishes are popular with Ipanema's health-conscious beachgoers, as well as with travelers staying at 'Hostel Alley', the strip of backpacker accommodation next door to the restaurant.
