Seafood in Centro & Praça Mauá
Tom Le Mesurier

Ancoramar (previously known as Albamar) has long been one of Rio’s best lunchtime seafood destinations. Its top picks are fresh oysters, grilled seafood with vegetables and moqueca (seafood stew cooked in coconut milk) dishes. The old-fashioned green gazebo-like structure offers excellent views of Baía de Guanabara and the area of Niterói across the bay.
