Excellent ambiance, even on a day with pouring rain. Staff very attentive and ready to explain menu, in English or Portuguese. Enjoyed every dish, especially hearts of palm, cooked freshly, and galindha caipaira. All desserts were excellent presentations and value for money, especially tarte tartin (with massive chunks of apple), and creme brulee. Well worth the visit, and slow relaxed... More

i had an amazing lunch at aprazivel. from start to finish, it was one of my favorite restaurants i've ever been to in brasil; the interiors are lush, the views are stunning, even on a hazy day, and the food and drinks were absolutely sublime. however, it is really, really expensive, especially given the more casual atmosphere. there seems to...

It's got a terrific view (day or night) and a lovely setting and ambience. The service is efficient and friendly. The menu is fairly extensive and the food high quality dining. They make a great house brand of beer which was a welcome change after the standard watery chopp served everywhere else. Visited three times during the World Cup and... More

Restaurant that is situated on the hills of Santa Teresa with breathtaking views of Rio. My food was great, although the sides were a little overdone. Service was top notch as well.

This restaurant is just beautiful. Like eating up in the treetops over looking Rio. It isn't too far from Christ Redeemer or the Lapa steps so is great for lunch/dinner after a touristy day out. The food was really good. A large array of options. I went with the squid which was melt in your mouth delicious and my husband... More

It's a great place to come to: the winding cobbled streets up through Santa Teresa; the magical raised tree-house tables; and of course the view. The food is perhaps a notch below the atmosphere; but somehow one does not mind moderate to good food in such a memorable spot.

I visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch with two friends. It is located in the Santa Teresa neighbourhood, a very pleasant area to see but a bit secluded from the rest of town. You arrive in the restaurant by taking an elevator which takes you two floors down from street level. The restaurant itself is on three different levels with... More

I loved dining here since it's one of those places where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Rio, from the top of Santa Teresa. And I loved it also because the restaurant itself is very nice, with different styles in different parts of it, friendly staff and good food - definitely good, both fish and meat dishes well cooked...
