Along with the beaches, the Christ Statue and Sugar Loaf, Rio de Janeiro's vast city lake is another of those landmark images of the city that will really take your breath away. Flanked by jungle-clad mountains, the vast stretch of water makes a pleasant spot for a romantic meal, and Bar Lagoa is the perfect place to relax over anything from a leisurely breakfast or formal dinner to cocktails and nibbles. The art deco interior of the building adds a kooky charm to the setting, while the predominant culinary influence is German cusine. Classics such as sausages and sauerkraut are popular orders, while vegetarians rave about the potato salad. Along with a decent wine list, there's a good range of imported German beers.
