The area where it is located is the major drawback, although it can make an interesting tour if you are in a large group. I would avoid late hours anyway.

"Sentaí" has always been a legend on Rio de Janeiro's restaurant scene and I had heard a lot about it and its traditional seafood and Portuguese cuisine. It is located in the very old Rio's center, behind the "Central do Brasil" railway station. The area is terrible and not at all recommended to foreigners (and Brazilians, too). It is not... More
