This restaurant is in the hilltop overlooking Rio de Janeiro...it's a bit hard to get to - lot's of very narrow winding roads (recommend taking a taxi) - but definitely worth it! The views are amazing, and the restaurant itself is beautifully laid out and designed...I almost felt like I was in a huge tree house. Mostly open walls and... More

I was staying in Santa Teresa, and just took a walk up the hill. Beautiful and steep walk. The effort made my incredible food even more rewarding. If you take a taxi, definitely take a stroll around this upper part of the neighborhood. Very, very great food, and setting

This restaurant, situade in the hights of Morro Santa Teresa, shouldn´t be missed in termos of its views. I´ve been there with my parents and we sat in the veranda with astounding views to the bridge Rio-Niterói and the Sugar Loaf. The food was also delicious, despite the too high prices. I suggest you shouldn´t miss the palmito pupunha (... More

This restaurant is in Santa Tereza which is up on the hillside away from the beaches, but is a perfect way to see something a little different in Rio. The food here is traditional Brazilian, and very good! The moqueca and escondidinho were both fantastic. Very reliable option in Rio!

This restaurant was one of the highlight of our trip to Rio. From the moment we got in, all the staff, were super nice and polite. I was told that all the waiters speak Portuguese, English and a 3rd language, making this place very popular with the tourists. It is not very easy to find and some people told us... More

From the minute we walked in up towhenl we left we had great service. The hostess and wait staff were very attentive, the views were spectacular, the décor was enchanting and best of all the food was excellent. My only complaint was that we had to make three wine selections off the wine list before we found one that they... More
