The best place for seafood in Vargem Grande's little gastronomic hub, Skunna is well worth the trip west from the action. Unpretentious in approach, its appearance hides the gems emerging from the kitchen. Shrimp in orange sauce, seafood risotto and a magnificent moqueca stew, choices are tricky, particularly when most will easily serve two people. Non fish-fans have meat and chicken dishes to choose from, but the prize undoubtedly lies in the ocean's specialities.
