Rio de Janeiro offers a unique cuisine, spicing the traditional, Old World gastronomy with new exotic local ingredients. 
The Rio restaurants below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Expensive (over R$200)
Moderate (R$ 50 to R$200)
Cheap (up to R$50)
These Rio restaurant prices are based on the average price of a three-course meal and half a bottle of house wine or equivalent. They include tax but not service.
Sales tax of 5% and a service charge of 10-15% are added to most restaurant bills in Rio. Most credit cards are now widely accepted in the city's restaurants, although some of the cheaper or older establishments only accept cash. It is advisable for diners to phone the restaurant in advance to check whether or not a particular card is accepted.
