Good experience !

Nice restaurant. Good food and very special environment. You have to go by taxi because it is very difficult to reach.

I went for lunch to Aprazivel since it's very well known for the view on Rio, which indeed is quite nice. However, we were served food warmed with microwave, nobody of the staff could speak english, the manager was extremely rude and unprofessional and they tried to charge a wine that we had returned since it was not good.

We ate here on our last night. We had a table with a great view over the city. The waiting staff were extremely polite and attentive and the food excellent. Some reviewers have said that it is expensive, yes it is, but for a special place like this it is worth it. We did not find their own taxi expensive... More

As stated by everyone else, the winding road to the top should tell you that you are in for a beautiful view. Set in the side of the hilltop, the restaurant itself is visually quite pretty. We went for Sunday lunch and arrived just before the wait became 2 hours long! This is apparently a nice place to go with... More

The location is really stunning. High in the hills of Santa Teresa the views are enchanting and we particularly had a nice table. But really the food wasn't, in my opinion, compatible to the location and its apparent reputation. My first course, scallops, was decent but I've had better quality and better sauce. I had their signature fish dish for... More

The restaurant is on the hill of Santa Teresa. We sat outside and the view of the harbor and the city lights was fantastic. The food was very good, but the service was not the best. We were a bit disappointed at the end of dinner when they would not call us a yellow taxi because they work with executive... More

Loved everything about it. Upscale, but friendly with breath taking views. Location allows you to view most of the city.

After reading some great reviews and looking at the photos I was looking forward to our night out at Aprazivel. The decor was interesting but the food was average for some dishes and poor for others. My daughter's dish had plastic wrap in it and my pork was dry, salty and inedible. For the price of the food we expected... More

Overall the food was good to very good on the scale of quality, portion and flavour. The price however was a little high for what we received if the price was associated purely with food. The service was very good and the atmosphere due to the layout, location and view was excellent. Even the drive to the location was an... More
