Arab da Lagoa information
This is one of the lake's most popular outdoor restaurants. It serves up traditional Middle Eastern specialties such as hummus, baba ghanoush, tabouleh, kibbe and tasty thin-crust pizzas. The large platters for two or more are good for sampling a tasty variety.
During the day it's a peaceful refuge from the city, while at night you can hear live samba, choro (romantic, intimate samba) or jazz from 9pm on weekdays, and 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
