It's worth calling in advance to book a table by the window at Hansl overlooking the Barra da Tijuca beach are absolutely stunning. Austrian food is the order of the day at this off-the-beaten-track spot, and deliciously decadent fondues are the house specialty. Their meaty broths also come in a seafood version, which combines shrimp, salmon and squid—deliciousness. Order a plate of potato rosti as a side dish to share, and round the meal off with, yes, more fondue. The white or dark chocolate fondues with fresh fruit are worth every calorie.
