Forneria Santa Filomena is one of the best restaurantes in Rio de Janeiro, and the best thing, it haven't been discovered by everyone yet. It is located in the neighbourhood of Tijuca, which is not in the noble/touristic region of the city (the South Zone, "Zona Sul", where is Copacabana, Leblon, Ipanema, Lagoa, etc). Tijuca is more a residential and peaceful area with few restaurants, altough it is changing. Right next to Forneria Santa Filomena are two new places: Aconchego Carioca and Botto Bar (two of the best pubs/bars in Rio, offering the best beer menu in town). So, the region around the restaurant is becoming a gastronomical spot.

Now, details about the restaurant. The food is delicious and what we can label "confort food". They serve traditional brazilian meal that we used to eat in our childhood, prepared by our mothers and grandmothers. Check their facebook page for more info: https://www.facebook.com/forneriasantafilomena?fref=ts
or the menu here: http://www.forneriasantafilomena.com/p/cardapio.html

They also offer great desserts. Their brownies are the world's best. Try the dark beer & belgian chocolate ice cream or the bourbon & doce de leite ice cream!

The prices are the most just in Rio, since the restaurantes of the Zona Sul are going crazy with all the high prices and real state speculation in the city due to the world cup and olympic games. The service is also great. The owner is always there to greet you.

PS: it is the only restaurant in Rio where water is for free.
