New Natural (restaurant + shop)
Rua Barão Torre, 173 - Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro
This great organic kilo restaurant in Rio allows you to buy healthy, vegetarian food by the kilo. Non-vegetarian options are also available. Choice is everything but restricted (salads, sushis, meats, vegetables), and absolutely tasty. The atmosphere is very calming and there is plenty of sitting. A great option after shopping or sun-bathing in Ipanema.
Address: Rua Xavier da Silveira, 28A - Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro
A great place to eat healthy, tasteful and well put-together vegetarian food. The staff clearly cares about the food they serve you. At the same time the place has a relaxed vibe and the prices are reasonable. Everyone who enjoys eating healthy would appreciate this, veggie or not!
Vegetarian o Social Clube
Rua Conde Bernadotte, 26 - Leblon, Rio de Janeiro
Vegetarians interested in sampling Brazil's signature dish should visit this small charmer on Thursday or Sunday when tofu feijoada is served. At other times, they serve a small (10-dish) lunch buffet, while the more elaborate evening a la carte menu features risottos, yakisoba, heart-of-palm stroganoff and other inventive dishes.
Rua 19 de Fevereiro, 720, Casa 02 - Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro
This vegetarian restaurant has the buffet "all you can eat" and "a la carte" options. The buffet is better if you want to try everything this amazing place can offer you. Their recipes are really innovative mixing international and brazilian cuisine, always adapting it to a vegan version. Try also the nice fresh juices combinations!
