La Carioca Cevicheria

Peruvian in Ipanema & Leblon

True to its name, this Peruvian place specializes in ceviche and serves more than a dozen varieties of the tangy, tender seafood dish. Other great plates for sharing include the pulpo andino (crispy octopus with potato salad and baked red pepper), tiraditos (fresh, thinly sliced fish) and lomo saltado (stir-fried steak and spices).

Take a seat on the inviting front terrace and don't forget to order a pisco sour; they're the best you'll find this side of Machu Picchu.
