In an antiques-based decor strongly reminiscent of Dom João IV’s 19th century court, Antiquarius treats its guests to delicious recipes from ancient Portugal.
Brazil’s colonizers, for all their faults, left some excellent flavors behind: codfish “à portuguesa” is Antiquarius’s main speciality, but the menu also features lamb “à moda Braga” and partridge. More than 100 fine wines from Spain, France and, of course, Portugal complete the impression of old world luxury.
For dessert, the traditional egg-based sweets are a must. And, in line with the practise of noblesse oblige, Antiquarius keeps its prices pleasant: meals begins at a moderate R$61.
