Beco das Sardinhas, Rio de Janeiro

3.5
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.

  • Between AV. Bad. Fox and Street of Acre, near the Church of Santa Rita, downtown Rio de Janeiro. Relaxed location, in the middle of the street and covered by awnings, shorts, t-shirts and chinelões are very welcome. Crispy sardines, very mild seasoning and salt well moderated, came with a sauce of lemon, pepper, etc. and to follow, chopp super cold. Waiters always very attentive and polite, tables will marking applications and bring to the table. Justíssimos prices and open Monday to Friday from 11:00 h. Worth a lot go know the location that has other types of snacks and quick plates.

  • Simple, with tables on the sidewalk, busy, with several different restaurants, one on top of the other. The sardine is very good. We always find the friends from work on Thursday for a cold one and that Samson.

  • Cosy place with good options, do not choose the omelet, off that choice, all the other dishes are fair, taste and price.
