Lying around 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) to the west of central Rio, the Vargem Grande neighborhood is fast developing a reputation as a mecca for food lovers, and Skunna provides ample evidence as to why. The seafood dishes are impeccable; try the shrimp with gruyere cheese and rice, or the platter of mixed grilled seafood. Portions are ample for two. Desserts here will tempt even the toughest dieter - don't miss the Sonho Mineiro, slices of candied guava baked in the oven with soft cheese, fruit sauce, and a very creamy ice cream. Low-key live music helps set the tone for a wonderfully relaxed meal in this leafy suburb.
