Shopping Malls

Barra da Tijuca is a neighborhood with several shopping centers, of various types and styles. To reach any of them you need to take a taxi or an Uber, which typically take 10-15 minutes (not considering rush hour traffic). We provide below information about two of such shopping centers, which provide good restaurant options.

- Downtown Shopping: this is an open mall shopping center with several good restaurants. However, it is not a good option in case of rain or extreme heat.
