Well worth the trip

This was pretty far from Copacabana but we really did enjoy this meal - in fact it was pretty nice and looking out across Rio at night was quite romantic. The waiting staff were very helpful and the food top notch

The view was great, apart from that, the service was way below average. Long waiting times even though many waiters were standing around, food was okay, but way overpriced for such small portions. Unfortunately, payment with USD was not possible, only for a rip-off exchange rate. Strange for a place that receives mainly foreigners. Can recommend only for enjoying the... More

Went there for a Saturday night dinner with my wife while in Rio around sunset. We sat in the patio area, but frankly every/any section of this restaurant offers a unique and romantic dining experience. The food was excellent, I had the Goat entree while my wife had white fish in a coconut milk sauce, after a Salad and Ceviche... More

Aprazivel proved to be a long climb from Mama Ruisa, the B&B we were staying at in Santa Teresa. Once you've reached the entrance, there are then many steps down into the restaurant itself. There is a lift for the less able bodied. The menu seems to consist of many tried and tested favourites. Not surprisingly, the focus is on... More

... Paired with overpriced average food. The view is good but don't go there for dinner. The staff is standing around, helpless and bored.

Great view, delicious food, professional and kind service. I have been 3 times here, never disappointed. Last was for lunch on a saturday in january '16. We had the palmetto aside and the octopus. Just perfect. And they have their now beer brewery, very good indeed. I think the prices are very correct given the quality.

After eating there in 2009 for dinner with friends I went this time for lunch and absolutely loved it. It was Saturday and we had no reservation but we took a cab there which I think is kind of key as it is high up in Santa Teresa. We were seated right away as a nice outdoors table with good... More

The restaurant is a nice place with a great view especially at night. Food is good and well presented with a wide choice and service is really accurate. I would recommend during your stay also to experience a different flavour of the city.

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
