Beco das Sardinhas, Rio de Janeiro
(3.7/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Beco das Sardinhas, situated on a historic pedestrian-only street in the city’s center. This cobblestoned "Sardine Alley" is home to numerous restaurants serving hot food right on the pavement. The place is busy and noisy, offering a taste of genuine Brazilian street life. At this site you can try the famous "frango maritime," or chicken of the sea, which is simply a dish of fresh sardines opened lengthwise, breaded, and then deep fried. These restaurants are open all day and often allow local bands to perform live music late into the night. Stop by for a tasty hot meal and a refreshing drink before exploring more of this city district rich in history and culture.

  • It's a place next to the praça Mauá with several bars where the car Chief is sardine snack chips and cold beer! Very good to enjoy the simplicity of a pub and having good conversations with friends and enjoy a delicacy.

  • Gostei da Comida!
  • Muito bom
  • Ótimas sardinhas
  • Estou extremamente pasma e revoltada! Há 8 meses atrás almoçava com meu marido lá comendo sardinha, purê de batata, arroz e feijão, pagando cerca de R$ 40,00. Agora o dono surtou! Como estávamos com esse valor ou pouco mais que poderia ter aumentado por causa da "crise", nem olhamos os preços novos...hoje, 12/11/15, fomos num restaurantezinho lá, tal de vilarejo... comemos o mesmo prato, e acreditem, parece surreal, pagamos R$ 71,00! Quase caí para trás. As sardinhas estavam com preço bom, mas só de purê, arroz e feijão para um casal pagar cerca de R$ 50,00? Absuuuuuuuurdo! Um assalto isso! Nunca mais volto lá, nunca mais!!! Perguntei ao gerente o que houve, ele falou que teve 2 aumentos em 6 meses. Sacanagem, não?
  • Tradicional boteco de frutos do mar. Chope gelado, bons preços, várias opções de cardápio. Boa localização. Bom servico. Fácil acesso por metrô
