From Grumari Beach, Estrada de Guaratiba climbs up through dense forest, emerging atop a hill above the vast Guaratiba flatlands. Here you'll come upon this restaurant famed for its moqueca, the traditional seafood stew. With its shady setting, glorious vistas, and live music (samba, bossa nova, jazz), this a fine spot for an early lunch after a morning on the beach and before an afternoon visit to the Sítio Roberto Burle Marx or the Museu Casa do Pontal. Or come here
in the early evening to catch the spectacular sunset.
