Lonely Planet review for Barreado
In a lush setting west of Barra, this rustic spot serves fresh Brazilian seafood with a wildly eclectic twist. Meals are prepared in the wood-burning oven, and pumpkin is the serving vehicle of choice. You can order it filled with rich delicacies such as shrimp with catupiry (a kind of cheese), scampi, or lobster and mango. Vatapá and roast meats are also excellent choices. It's located about 35km west of Rio.
