Couldn't recommend this enough! Beautiful wine selection, tasty food, lovely service, amazing atmosphere! Views are just gorgeous and recommend dinner after 8 when the city is dark and lights of Rio are on display. They will call you a taxi when you're done, absolutely no need to walk!

We got there without reservations as it would be a late dinner. The taxi drivers don´t like to take people to the top of Santa Tereza´s neighborhood, specially at night, so we had to walk up hill for about 10 min. The restaurant is very good, great service, but a bit overpriced for the kind of food - traditional chicken... More

This was probably our best meal in Rio. Aprazivel is placed at the top of Santa Teresa hill with iconic views over the bay, and combines the good taste of a tropical ambience with that of good food. You cannot have it all: it is an open air restaurant, so the sea breeze needs to make it up for the... More

The setting and atmosphere of this restaurant are outstanding - located high up on a hillside, there's a wonderful view of Rio de Janeiro all the way to the water. We sat outside on the balcony on a hot sunny day for lunch, where they have little machines blowing cool water mist (so nice). It was very pleasant. Unfortunately the... More

Located in Santa Teresa, this one one should get a taxi to go and back. It is up on a crooked and wining road. The environment is great and one can sit at tables set around real trees. The view of the bay area is pretty.

We had a fantastic meal here, one of the best on our holiday to Rio. We were travelling in a group and were taken here by our company which has a great treat. The restaurant is situated in Santa Teresa, the food was tasty, genuine Brazilian cuisine, and the tree house setting was lovely. Brazilian baked palm heart for starters,... More

Best overall meal experience in Rio, food was excellent, service attentive and the view was breathtaking. Great selection of Brazilian wines too.If you're in Rio and get off the beaches this is the place to go.

This restaurante in the top of the Santa Teresa hill is wonderful! You can see the whole city from there, at night is super! The drinks are awesome and food good too! Advice, don't go too late cause it closes early and go with somebody that knows the city cause you have to pass by the favelas. You must go... More

Of the city lights. Service was pleasant and friendly, food was also perfectly fine without being exceptional. Wine list had some interesting local choices. Refusal to call a taxi at the end of the night, because they don't like to leave Lapa -quote, but they did have executive cars on hand at twice the cost of getting there left a... More
