This restaurant is a must visit if you are ever in Rio. Whether you visit it during the day or the night the views are spectacular, and these and the layout of the restaurant over a number of different level, adds the the high quality of the food. The restaurant is located at the top of a hill in Santa... More

When we arrived it took us 2 minutes to get the attention of the guy on receptions attention. We stood without acknowledgement while he chatted with a colleague. Not to worry, within moments he was questioning if we really had a booking. We did. And he soon pivoted to being charming. He took us to a table where it became... More

Aprazivel restaurant sits on a hill on the Santa Teresa neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. The tables are spread out on several levels with views, it feels partly as being in a garden and partly as being in the mountainsThe appetizers and entrees are great: i tried the pasteis and a "tropical" fish dish which was delicious. The deserts are... More

On paper, Aprazivel has everything to please: Nice views over the Zona Norte of Rio a picturesque décor that includes several tree houses with woven palm roofs. However, between the food, which ranged from passable to actively bad, they were simply plain food with no personality, very ordinarily cooked and lacking flavor, and off-ripping prices! DO NOT GO THERE!!!

This is a short review because there's not really much to critique.... The venue is wow, the food is beautiful, the service is excellent and the view is gorgeous. I have read some negative reviews on here about Aprazivel and wondered whether to bother (as you do have to get a cab to take you up there), but I'm so... More

The design is excellent among the trees with a great view of the city as it is located on the mountain. Although we went there by taxi, it was a little difficult to find there; but, it really worth finding there. It is located at Santa Teresa neighborhood which the neighborhood itself is a must-see in rio. The food is... More

This is a lovely restaurant off the beaten path. It is multi leveled, trailing down the mountainside (elevator equipped from the street), among the trees, and with a beautiful view from almost every seat. The service was professional and attentive. The was the best dinner we have had in Rio and they have an extensive wine list. Cheap it's not,... More

Being Italian I am always looking for really good food and I like to discover places... I was in Brazil for a work trip and I ended up in this restaurant. First of all the location is breathtaking. I ordered the grilled octopus and it was so tender I could use my fork to cut it. It would literally melt... More
