Arab da Lagoa

Middle Eastern in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

This is one of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas' most popular outdoor restaurants. It serves traditional Middle Eastern specialties such as hummus, baba ghanoush, tabbouleh, 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).
