Clearly the best thing about this restaurant is its location and ambiance, surrounded by the forest at the charming quarters of 'Santa Tereza' hill, what gives you an amazing view of the city. The food is good, not outstanding, drinks are interesting (especially the exotic kinds of 'caipirinha') and the service is mostly acceptable, unless you have serious bad luck.

We went there on a saturday night and found it to be a very poor place. The access to the place is horrible, but its worth it for the view, wich is the only good thing about this place. The food is very average, nothing impressive, and the prices are way too high for the quality, specially when talking about... More

I visited this restaurant twice for lunch and dinner. I had a fantastic time both times. It is right in Santa Teresa and for lunch I walked up to the restaurant and the little shops in Santa Teresa guided me to this place. For lunch I ordered the Heart of Palm which comes out as if it had been steamed... More

We were a party of 8 having dinner. They ask us where to sit and since of us had been already several times and knew really well the restaurant, we decided to go downstairs to one of the terraces. The sight was just incredible!!! We ordered caipirinhas and some wine from their really nice selection. To eat we ordered some... More

I visited Rio in August 2014 with my family. I was recommended this restaurant and I am so glad we came here. The drive alone to this restaurant through all the windy, small cobblestone streets reminds you of Brazil's European heritage. When you reach the restaurant it doesn't look like much but then you take a very.... decorated elevator down... More

The restaurant is cozy, but I couldn't find the wonderful view that everybody said. Maybe it's a little spot underneath the trees. Huge restaurant with different types of tables (inside the saloon, balcony and so). The food is great and the price is a little bit high. The neighborhood of Santa Teresa is close to Lapa and you should go... More

Aprazivel is a great option for a nice meal with a beautiful view to the city of Rio! A special recommendation to the heart of palm as an entree.It comes with pesto sauce. Due to its pricey menu it's a restaurant that locals more often go for special occasions. Local and international celebrities can be often seen.

A gem in Santa Teresa neighborhood. Great view and delicious local cuisine. Certainly the best option in the area. Only few cons: relatively expensive (for brazilian standards) and not particularly easy access (need to take a taxi and walking around the neighborhood from the restaurant is not ideal). A must nonetheless.

With wonderful views, the restaurant has one of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro. The place is airy, quiet and full of nature. The dishes are delicious and the wine list is great.
