Palaphita - A piece of the Amazon in Rio Apr 01, 2008
I didn't know how to qualify this place. Is it a restaurant, a bar or a mix of both? Well, for me this is more a place to hang out and enjoy drinks and food, than just the food. So, I considered it a night entertainment place ;)

First of all I have to say that this place is considered one of the favorite ones in Rio. Well, its localization is almost magic. It’s at the lake: “Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas” between Ipanema & Copacabana, looks like if it were in a paradise. The building (if you can call it like that) remembers the typical buildings in the Amazon river, according to the tropical environment. Although you are in Rio and the temperature can be really high. The fact it is an open place, will keep you cool. All the furniture with a rustic style will give you the sensation that you are in a real house in the Amazon. The local has 3 areas: Palafitas (deck), Jardim (garden) and the Sape (covered part). Every part is unique, also the restrooms. This place is open day and night, but I recommend you to go during the night, so you’d be able to enjoy the beautiful illumination too. They use torches, so the light will be indirect ;)

The music is not so loud, so it’s the perfect place to meet your friends and enjoy a nice conversation. And the view is just breathtaking. :)

Regarding their food, they use the native ingredients. Mix the typical fruits to prepare their own recipes inspired in the traditional Brazilian food. Not only the food is great, but also the presentation of the dishes. They use Indian pottery, banana leaves, etc.

For drinks you will find the soft drinks: water, sodas, and also tasty juices "sucos" made with tropical fruits. Also they serve beer, and caipirinhas. You can choose either the from a different variety of drinks made with different liquors besides the cachaca.

If you want some chips, order the banana ones. They are organic banana chips fried in palm tree oil. Really tasty and brazilian ;)

Their philosophy is: Ser um lugar simples e primitivo onde urbanos se sintam sofisticadamente em Paz ! To be a simple and primitive place, where city people feel in sophisticated peace!
