Zuka is an excellent choice in Rio, located in the most exclusive area of Leblon. Very well performed and tasty dishes, with a nice cultural mixture between France and Brazil. Nice place to go.

Really worth trying - should be higher up the trip advisor ratings as far as I'm concerned! Mid size dining room with a relaxed feel and seemed packed with locals. Varied menu at decent prices - food tasted great and the service was excellent too.
