What a view...

Was there having dinner with a few friends, I was really impressed by the setting and the view.. the food was good, I ordered the salada de palmito and the service was friendly. I found it a bit expensive though. Access was not easy but it was worth it. Hope to be back!

I had a light lunch here today. Restaurant Aprazivel is one of my all time favourite places to eat in Rio. Set atop the Santa Teresa hill, Aprazivel offers guests one of the most beautiful views over the city. The Sunset experience from here is also quite stunning. The restaurant is beautiful, with many different levels and eating areas. Built... More

This place is great! To me this is what you expect when you go to Rio de Janeiro. Nice open air place, with great view and great typical food. THe services is great too and the waiters are very nice. I recommend to have a late lunch so you can enjoy the view (and probably will not have to wait... More

The space itself is amazing -- most tables are outside, some with great views; sounds from the nightlife down below in Santa Teresa; and separate, distinct dining areas make it feel like you could have a unique experience eating at a different table each time. Service is solid, food is great, and drinks are incredible. The creative takes on many... More

This was one of our more enjoyable eating experiences in Brazil. We found better value elsewhere but for sheer class and delicious food and drinks this was the nicest. On par with a very good restaurant in a major U.S. city but with a fun tree-house atmosphere and awesome views. The attention to detail was nice, including umbrellas to get... More

If you like great stunning views, good service and a creative treehouse like restaurant. This is the place to go! The food is good but the view and the restaurant layout is exceptional. Recommended

One the most unique restaurants we've been to. Food and presentation fantastic. Group of friends had sacred lamb, goat meat, octopus and fish dishes. All great. Palmito appetizer excellent too. Unique tree house setting with views including of Maracana stadium. Pricey but worth it for special evening. Unforgettable meal and experience! Do it!

Access: Located high on the hilltops of Santa Teresa, this place is a bit tricky to get to if you don’t have directions beforehand. I imagine that I was one of the rare people who actually arrived on foot as a walk-in diner, but it’s best to have the location confirmed before setting off with your taxi. It’s remote but... More

One of the best restaurants in Rio de Janeiro. It has a very Brazilian and very tasty menu. The wine list is also very interesting. The view from the restaurant is amazing and the atmosphere is very nice and cozy. Good to go with friends, or with family, or as a couple.

Aprazivel serves a variety of interesting and innovative dishes with ingredients from all over Brazil. The ambiance is very pleasant with tables set under thatched roofs and stunning views. The only drawback is that it's quite pricey.
