Boasting one of the best beachfront locations in Rio de Janeiro, the Arpoador Inn is located directly on the Ipanema beach front - the perfect spot for surfers to take advantage of Rio’s waves. The Arpoador Inn outdoor terrace cafe is located in one of the most prime beachfront locations in the city, and is a fantastic hangout spot during the day, late-afternoon sunsets, and during the evenings to watch the vibrant, non-stop action of the Ipanema beachfront. Sip on a potent ‘Caipirinha’ cocktail laden with fresh seasonal fruits and more than a splash of the potent Brazilian liquor, cachaça. The traditional Brazilian food on offer here throughout the day and evening is also delicious, where the pasteis de feijoada savory pastries with pork and black bean stew, and the house specialty moqueca traditional Brazilian seafood stew are a few highlights from the menu. Arrive well before sunset for a front row view of the sun setting over the Corcovado ‘Christ The Redeemer’ statue and the dramatic peaked mountains towering behind Leblon beach.
