Brazil is a mix of races, subcultures, looks, people, resulting in a great diversity. There is no doubt that the cuisine is the climax of Brazilian appetite. They have specific dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner or even special menus for national events. To sum it up, Brazilian food does not vary too much from the major North American dishes. It’s said Brazilian cuisine is focused on seafood, but you can find many great international restaurants, expensive, with perfect serving and also thin neighborhood ones.

If you are in Rio de Janeiro, enjoying your vacation, here are three restaurants that will make your dinner fabulous. We talk about this because the design of all these restaurants is really great.

Marius – Steakhouse, perfect for tourists, catches the Brazilian spirit in the amazing decoration. If you are a meat lover, this is your heaven. One advantage, which foreign people will never find in any restaurant, is that it offers three all-you-can-eat options: All-you-can-eat beef, all you can eat fish or seafood and all you can eat beef and seafood, which allows everyone enjoy a good meal, depending on their diet or lifestyle.

Satyricon – Seafood is famous for its grilled seafood served with a great variety of sauces and a matching wine, picked from one of the best wine lists in Rio. Excellence describes Satyricon and that is why it offers the best tiramisu in town.

Hachiko is a high ranked Rio restaurant, which offers Japanese, Contemporary, Fusion, Pan-Asian cuisine. It is known for its fresh raw fish, amazing interior design. Although the main focus is on Japanese cooking, the chefs spice up the food with a Brazilian twist. Of course, another advantage is the fast serving.

When in Sao Paolo, if you need to “sugar up” your day, try Bacio di Latte, best place in town for an ice cream or dessert. Chocolate fans will find it hard to decide between Belgian or Tanzanian chocolate. Take a foodie tour and you will see.

Restaurant Figueira Rubaiyat is a great choice for indoor or outdoor meetings. The main room is built around a big fig tree and the branches have been glassed in. The menu includes seafood( Tuunare and Pirarucu fish) plus steaks. The best advantage- feijoada, a national pork dish, is served on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

How about some pizza? Eating a good pizza slice never gets old or boring, so here is where you should go: Speranza. It is said that every day, in Sao Paolo, a million pizzas are eaten. This restaurant offers a big variety of pizzas, because it has kept its doors opened for over 50 years. The margherita is top recipe at Speranza.

Need a drink? No problem, the Sky Bar from the Unique Hotel is available and has two major advantages: best caipirinha - Brazil's most famous cocktail and best view of the city. If you want to take a swim, the Sky Bar offers a pool and a lounge. And the last surprise: sake, as good as the original.
