Charles Burger, is a well-known place that is really crowded. The burgers are really good, a great price and for those who know it the best thing is that the plate is very full and delicious! All Hamburgers have the name of a famous "charles." Charlie Brown, Charlie Sheen, Charles Darwin, Chaplin, Charles King, etc. Super fun to eat the Charles Darwin chips lol! So big, and yet well done. Soft, good ingredients, all cooked and freshly baked. The place is really cool in the summer and has space for eating out on the balcony; at winter there's an indoor fireplace. Beirut also has dishes to split in two, and is R $ 15 per person, affordable. The desserts are classic. The brownie with ice cream, which usually costs less than $ 15, l being R $ 12.
The Conchiglione is part of a network of old houses in which the best pasta is made, the Padre Anchieta Conchiglione Don is one. Its a bit small, but attracts many customers with the quality, and great taste of their products. There are several types of pasta, lasagna, tortis, gnocchi, etc, and various delightful dishes that are available for home consumption. The aroma of the sauces can be chosen with the type of dough, which can be felt around the house when we move. My favorite dish has always been and will always be filled with pumpkin conchiglione a lot of Bolognese with cheese. Highly recommended visit.
This restaurant offers the possibility to sample the delights of traditional Brazilian cuisine which is combined with touches of modern haute cuisine. The result is an exotic dish that take you to the tropics.
You can't visit a destination without trying some of the local cuisine, right? Well, if you're in Curitiba, you'll want to try some of the delicacies. For us, this was the best restaurant, serving authentic cuisine, including barreado. After your trip to the fair, you can cross the street and you'll find this dish - which needs about 20 hours to prepare. I was baffled because I didn't know what to expect, but it's a meat dish cooked for several days in a clay pot, served with rice, cassava flour, and fried bananas. The food is very simple, but rich in history. The staff are friendly. Barreado for two was $ 40.00.
This restaurant opened in 1988, and is located in an old house in the centre of Curitiba. The perfect destination for pasta lovers! The portions are generous, and prices are fair. We tried four cheese gnocchi, and went back the next day for spaghetti. Delicious! The dining room is opposite the Hotel Bristol St Emilion.
This restaurant consists of some large rooms where traditional Italian food is offered. On the table there were different portions of polenta, salad, mayonnaise, gnocchi, risotto, chicken and more. Spaghetti is offered with a choice of sauce (bolognese, four cheese, garlic and oil, pesto, carbonara). There's also lasagne, cannelloni, conchiglione, and more. The Italian sausage lasagna is a real must. All this for 32 dollars a head (price accurate in the second half of 2012). And you can't leave without a coffee and dessert!
Taco El Pancho is one of the most traditional bars in the city of Curitiba. It is on the trendy Batel Avenue, full of bars and clubs. It stands within a minicomplex of bars and restaurants, all run by the same owner. The menu is dominated by Mexican food. The nachos are hot and delicious, and they have mariachi performances. The bar is mostly frequented by young people, but families come here, too. A good choice for large groups.
The Mozart is a restaurant that sells food by the kilo, located on the outskirts of the Cristal shopping mall. It's a pleasant spot which looks like a small bistro, with good quality food at an affordable price. During the week, it costs around $29.99 for a kilo, and at the weekend it rises to $39.99. The buffet menu is quite varied, with a lot of dining options including salads, rice and beans, delicious quiches, and salmon. During weekday lunches, the restaurant fills up with businessmen, but it's quiet at the weekends. You can get a loyalty card, which means that your 15th meal is free. The desserts are great, too. A good option.
A good choice if you want to eat in downtown Curitiba. Opposite the Federal Justice offices, it's right in the historic sector. It serves lunch from Monday to Saturday, in a refined atmosphere. You can spend $34.90 for a salad, main course and dessert, with plenty of options to choose from. I liked the sirloin with honey mustard sauce.
You know those places where you can feel the affection in every detail? This is one of them. In a touristic city like Foz, the importance of an environment that unites culture and leisure is almost essential, but I didn't know I'd find it here. The Emporio com Arte café emerged out of an innovative proposal to encourage local and national Brazilian artists to work on the details from beautiful tableware, to rustic furniture that decorate the place - everything seems to have been handpicked. Several artists are invited to exhibit their work and best of all, all the work exhibited is for sale. The menu is varied slightly, but guarantees exotic and different combinations, taking quality to a select audience in a city that lacks this kind of place.
