La Fabrique website

Just one block away from its older sibling, Galeria 1618, La Fabrique provides an equally charming ambience on one of the most attractive corners of this famous stretch of beach. To do it’s location justice, small and diverse portions, to be slowly appreciated, define the spirit, with little brochettes the house dish providing the opportunity for sharing and a bit of one-on-one romance, so don’t be surprised to find it a bit couple-y from time to time. Trouxinhas, little steamed bags of thin rice pastry with a squid or shrimp filling (R$23.50), ravioli soup with grilled shrimp, passion fruit and lemon grass (R$14) and the Kaffa brochette with mint yoghurt sauce (R$18) all verge on the knockout.

But that’s not to say its not worth a group visit, far from it. The canopy over the front terrace provides a winning atmosphere under which to huddle up and try the house drink, the Hibiscus-flower and lime caipirinha. Mains range from moqueca (traditional Brazilian seafood stew) to fondue and the kitchen claims to have a 99% fat-free menu, though how that works with a fondue is anybody's guess. Visit at night rather than at lunchtime for the more inspiring menu.
