We chose to stay in Leblon as we wanted to get away from the major tourist centre in Copacabana. The apartments were very good, well maintained with a rooftop pool.
The surrounding area had some good food places (which were all relatively expensive, but that's Rio). One of the best was a bistro-type place just around the corner - good food and only about $30/head.
Views from the rooftop were excellent and access to the beach was about a 5 min walk straight down the road at the front of the hotel.
All in all, highly recommended.

The decor really made me feel like I was a part of their culture. i ate the bife ancho. And that was the end of my ...
... was more pizza, only sweet this time. Pizza base smothered in chocolate sauce is not a good idea as a relied from pizza base smothered in cheese.
Much more successful was a trip to the Clube Ginastico Portugues, an old draught building of high ceilings and faded gentility. On the fourth floor is a restaurant called Da Silva that does the most delicious all-you-can-eat buffet of Portuguese food. There was pork, chicken, duck, beef stew, ...
As I am writing this we are sitting on the terrace of our little B&B, soaking up the last of the Rio sun before our flight to Buenos Aires at 10 pm tonight!
Today was a more chilled day with a visit to Corcovado (the Christ the Redeemer statue). Due to the crazy post World Cup crowds we decided to only go up half-way and instead had a drink with a gorgeous view of the statue and the surrounding beaches.
After heading down, we stopped at a small ...
