Fresh fish and seafood are the order of the day at this traditional Portuguese restaurant. The Portuguese owners have brought the tastes of their homeland to the heart of Copacabana, and dishes featuring bacalhao (salted cod imported from Portugal) are particularly good. A very tasty case in point is the house special, the Bacalhao a Maria Soares. This dish features bacalhao fried in garlic, and covered with a bell pepper and onion sauce. Opened in 1969, A Marisqueira has been delighting locals here with their delish fare which is on the expensive side. Unlike many Rio de Janeiro restaurants, wine is served by the glass as well as the bottle, and there are some good Portuguese vinos on the list.
