You'll catch superb sunsets from the beachside tables at this spot in Arpoador that serves high-quality seafood and pasta dishes for lunch and dinner. Across from the beach on the Arpoador Inn's ground floor, the restaurant has a giant window with panoramic views. Moqueca is the house specialty, made with shrimp, cod, lobster, crab, or octopus—or a mix of them all. The service at Azul Marinho is excellent and the seafood is ultrafresh, but an even better reason to come here is to sit at one of the outdoor tables next to the sand and enjoy early-evening appetizers, drinks, and a marvelous sunset.
