We ventured outside of Leblon to some of the most beautiful beaches in Rio (about 45mins/hour drive). After hanging out on Grumari (see earlier post) we decided to head up the mountain and see if we could find a place for lunch. The drive up the mountain is beautiful, tropical green everywhere you look; however it is a very curvy narrow road up (similar to Positano, Italy).
Once we reached the top, we discovered Restaurante Point de Grumari.
The restaurant specializes in seafood and has wonderful fresh fish options. We had the dorado (my first time trying it) and it was excellent, grilled to perfection. Of course as with almost every meal you will eat in Brazil, it comes with rice and a few other yummy sides. If you don’t like fish, there are a number of steak options. Either way, if you are spending a day at Grumari, Prainha or Macumba, head here for lunch!
