Not so accesible

I disagree it is wheelchair accessible. There is a small wall around the outdoor area.
The family who owns the restaurant is too sympathic.
The owner José Carlos has a huge tatoo on his chest with a lot of vegetables and written "Animals are my friends, not food".
Finding it is a task for Indiana Jones and the Lost Restaurant. :{)

Pros: Calm place, Owner commited to Veganism
Cons: Difficult to find, Does not accept debit/credit cards

This restaurant is located near Prainha, beyond Barra de Tijuca, but if you're in the neighborhood, it is well worth the trek if you are a vegan in Brazil! I enjoyed and agree with another reviewer's comment about this being for "Indiana Jones" types, because it is not exactly easy to find. But if you use google maps with the address given on HappyCow, you'lll manage. When you arrive, you'll be rewarded with a beachy themed open air spot under enormous trees, set in a very typical neighborhood street. There are about 4 tables inside and 4 outside. There's only one plate of the day, which included soup (even though it was 100 degrees out!), followed by a main plate with four items (on the day we went, it was raw salad, savory brown rice & rabe pilaf, a bulghar kibe, and cold potato and carrot salad. Delicious. Don't miss the fresh juices - the maracuja' (passion fruit) was wonderful.

Pros: beachy atomosphere, vegan oasis in Brazil
Cons: Challenging to find

Close to one of the best beaches in Rio (Prainha), this is a must go place for vegans. Everyday has a different meal and the food is absolutely delicious and homemade.

Pros: great food, friendly staff, good sized portions
Cons: a little far away

Caminho do Mar is a lovely place. Every day you can eat a new and special plate. Everything is made and serve by the owner and his family. You can taste juices and desserts.

Pros: healthy cuisine, friendly staff
Cons: so far away
