There are tables inside and outside the building, and it's nice and clean, with good lighting. There are plenty of recommendations for beer available, and the wine doesn't disappoint, either. The menu is varied. Super recommended!
This candy store is one of the best spots in the city of Curitiba. It specialises in Polish cuisine, and you can enjoy all kinds of sweet and savoury dishes: a kind of colonial coffee, as well as pastries, tea, hot chocolate, juice, and plenty of sweets. You can also enjoy typical Polish cuisine - soups, salads, sandwiches, etc.
This is a good choice if you want Mexican food. There's a rotating basis of special offers - on each day of the week, you can try something different! It's a nice place for a chat and a beer. The restaurant also has a special menu for children.
If there's one thing I love about Curitiba, it's the number of good restaurants at affordable prices. My favourite is the Batel Grill Steakhouse, located at the end of the busy Avenida Batel. It's a steakhouse with plenty to offer, but if you're not a meat lover, it also serves sushi. Personally, I don't like Japanese food, but my friends have told me that the sushi is very good. There's also a huge salad bar, and they offer pasta, including really good fried gnocchi, and creamy polenta. Lunch Tuesday to Friday costs US $ 40.90 per person, and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday also costs the same.
The Madero is the best place to eat a burger in the city of Curitiba! The owners started it a long time ago, with the first restaurant right in the centre. At first it was just takeaway, but it became so popular that they introduced seating, and now it's always full. They serve other meat dishes, but the burger is their specialty. Everything is beautiful and clean, the service is friendly ... a perfect environment! Desserts are also fantastic, especially the brownies. Don't miss it if you're visiting Curitiba!
The Barbaran bar is not very easy to find, as it's located in the centre of the city, and not everyone knows it. It has no big sign outside, and is close to the Ukrainian Society. But inside you can find all kinds ... hipsters, non-conformists, families, people enjoying an after work happy hour ... this is a welcoming bar, with something for everyone! The menu is mainly Ukrainian dishes, but they're delicious, and the prices are great - I even took a picture of the menu to show them off. Entry is free. The bar is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 16h.
This is one of the chicest options in the city of Curitiba. Although dining options in the area are limited, the quality is much higher than other restaurants in the area. The flavours are delicious, and here you can buy food by the kilo, from a varied buffet. There are several options of salads, Japanese and Chinese, shrimp, pumpkin, salmon, and more. A kg of food costs around R$40.00. A good choice.
If you go for a walk in the city of Curitiba, be sure to visit the Durigan wine shop. It is located in the Villa Santa Felicidade, with many bars and restaurants nearby. It is of Italian origin, with an extensive wine cellar where you can enjoy fine wines, sparkling wines, grape juices, spirits and more! They also sell cheeses, meats and chocolates. It's clean and cozy, with friendly staff. Well worth the visit!
This is famous for its sandwiches and stuffed potatoes, but I quite like the salads, with a good price. There's a classic caesar salad that comes with chicken, as well as a blue cheese salad. You can also try some great desserts - very good cheesecake and apple pie, but nothing can beat the brownie. Great juices, too - my favourite is strawberry and watermelon.
Baggio's Pizzeria is one of the best value pizzerias in the city of Curitiba. It's located in a very old house which resembles a typical Italian restaurant. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the pizza, which is very tasty indeed. The crust is thin, and you have the health-conscious option of wholewheat pizza available. They also serve salads, although it's rare to see people opting for them. The menu is quite varied, and there's also a great wine and beer list. A large pizza of 12 slices is in the range of R $60. It's always full, and you can get takeout or delivery, too.
This restaurant is located in the famous Italian neighbourhood of Santa Felicidade. Although Madalosso is the most famous restaurant in the area, I really like this option, with a traditional menu that has remained unchanged for many years. The food is simple but delicious, and they will bring food to your table until you tell them to stop. They have salads, chicken, gnocchi, pasta, fried polenta, risotto, and lasagna with cheese or ham. It costs $ 35.00 per person and the 10% service charge is not included.
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.
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!
