Description: QUITÉRIA Located on leafy Rua Maria Quitéria, a cross street off Ipanema beach, the restaurant is specialised in Brazilian dishes that utilises fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, prepared by Chef Alejandra Maidana. The relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant, which was designed by local architect Bel Lobo, is a reference to the Tropical modernism Era, with comfortable chairs by award winning designer Sérgio Rodrigues. The site specific installation created by visual artist Gisele Camargo draws attention to the open plan kitchen, where the dishes are finalised. It is an experience of its own. DRINKS The QUITÉRIA offers a concise but sophisticated wine list, that will pair to your choice of dishes harmoniously. Here you are able to enjoy classic cocktails prepared by our bar attendants, who are masters in classic and signature caipirinhas made with fresh fruits from this season.

Quiteria offers a calm and relaxing ambience, and a delicious menu at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While the wine list could offer more options by the glass, service is obliging and attentive. Look for Edson at breakfast and lunch, he is a wonderful member of staff!

Dear customer!
We were very pleased to receive your notes and thank you very much for your generosity and affection towards our team, especially with Edson!
The relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant, which was designed by renowned architect Bel Lobo, is a reference to the era of Brazilian modernism, with comfortable chairs by award-winning Brazilian designer Sérgio Rodrigues and art created by visual artist Gisele Camargo.
The menu was designed to work essentially with Brazilian products, mostly organic and local producers, so that we always have a fresh and conscious menu to offer.
All the comments and placements of our customers are very welcome, so we consider your suggestion about the wines.
Many thanks again for your visit and nomination.
Best regards,
Gabriela Oliveira

Was recommended the place by our hotel and based on TA reviews we headed to Ipanema. Arrived at an almost empty restaurant and no one seemed to care about that we arrived, the staff just looked at us. Decided for one of the main courses which we were then informed they did not have, fair enough so we picked the alternative. The waiter got insulted (could tell by his face) when we said we didn’t want any starter and rather save room for something sweet later. Asked for wine by the glass and were told they do not do that for any wine because it is Monday which is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in 34 years of travel world wide so we left and none of the staff even asked why or tried to apologize. Probably because we saw through their scam attempt. A shame for an otherwise friendly city!

Dear Customer,

It has been an unusual situation, never seen before, as throughout that Monday you came to Quitéria there was a dramatic increase to the number of clients.
That added to the previous weekend, when we had just received an important award as best Brazilian Cuisine in the whole of Rio de Janeiro occasioned much of our produces to end.

That unfortunate situation reflects the incredible moment we have been living and has quickly been fixed the day after you visited us.

We would like to invite you to come back to QUITÉRIA and experience a fantastic meal, with much organic and sustainable local produce.

With my best regards,

Gabriela Oliveira

Dinner was delicious. Got there 10 minutes to 8, in time for happy hour. Best caipirinha ever! Had the polvo (octopus) and the salad with PANCS (unusual greens). Our waiter, Hauan, was super attentive. Enjoyed white and red wines by the glass. Special place.... we'll be back soon!

Dear Customer,

Thank you for sharing with us your impressions of our recent visit to Quitéria!
We were truly flattered to offer you "the best caipirinha ever!" I'm glad to hear that our happy hour time pleased you! It happens every day from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and when you order a glass of wine, long neck beer or a drink from the menu, you are offered a complimentary second!
Hauan thanks for the mention and we hope to see you back here very soon!
With my best regards,

This is a high-end all-you-can eat of fine, tasteful food at popular price. I had the most amazing 'dourado' fish with 'maracujá' sauce with a variety of wonderful salads plus rice and beans, bite size pie, rice cakes, eggplant lasanha, 'carreteiro' rice, farofa and much more. It is Brazilian cuisine brought to its best with a modern twist.

Hi Rosane!

How wonderful to receive your comments and impressions on the recent visit to the QUITÉRIA! Thank you for sharing with us.
We value Brazilian cuisine with its genuine ingredients and organic and local producers from Rio de Janeiro. Commandeered by chef Alejandra Maidana, the kitchen treasures the essence of simple and true with a delicate touch.
We were super happy to know that our lunch buffet, affectionately called "beans and rice" pleased you. The new buffet format served every day features traditional grandmother-tasting recipes that nourish and comfort the soul. Each day, customers can find a quick and economical lunch formula.
We hope to see you here soon!
With my best regards,
Gabriela Oliveira

I ate at Quiteria a few times and I wasn't disappointed. Quiteria menu offers modern cuisine, yet keeping true to Brazilian flavours (probably not an easy task). Even the organic leaf salad was a pleasant surprise with a delicious dressing, beautifully plated and well chosen flowers that actually complemented the dish (and not just for the sake of being there). Every dish I had was well plated and tasty. My impression of Quiteria is of a well sourced restaurant cooking delicious food. Service is friendly and attentive. Would certainly recommend and be back if I ever have a chance!
