With a prime location at the heart of upscale Ipanema, this 2012 addition to the neighborhood's already busy dining scene has proved a big success with local foodies and socialites. The seafront location makes the perfect setting for excellent seafood dishes, which come immaculately prepared and presented. Another major selling point for Vieira Souto is the fact that one of the owners is the acclaimed sommelier Joao de Souza, who has won a string of awards for his wine-selecting skills. As one might expect, the wine list here is terrific, and the staff can make expert food pairing recommendations. Vieira Souto is not a spot for budget travelers, but a lovely special occasion restaurant.
