Excellent feijoada (a local speciality meat stew) and a great atmosphere in Santa Teresa. Tables are close and we enjoyed chatting to the couple next to us. The service was friendly, fun and this felt like real Rio.

A busy diner in the centre of Santa Teresa. Worth visiting to see the collection of artworks and oddities on display. Friendly service, but we were not taken by the food. An easy stroll from Hotel Santa Teresa.

We had great meal here. Terrific food. Very friendly waiter. Packed with all types of people. We were the only people here who did not speak Portuguese. Highly recommend.

You’d better be adventurous if you venture into Bar do Mineiro, do not speak Portuguese and are unfamiliar with traditional local meals like feijoada (beans and all kinds of meats that foreigners might find odd). The decor is kind of funky filth. (Don’t get me started on the bathroom; it’s a little scary.) But if you’re willing to try something... More

This is a typical restaurant along the streetcar line, and offers the typical food you can find in Brazil. The thing is, the prices are not typical at all.

The Feijoada was okay. I may not have enough samples of this dish elsewhere to know if this was great or not but I just didn't think it came together. It was definitely plentiful in terms of serving size. The caipirinhas was well done here though. The place was pretty empty at about 12pm but it gets completely full around... More

This place is always packed on the weekends. Great local atmosphere - I met a lot of locals here that made the occasional tourist (me) feel very welcome. Get a beer and the fried pastel de feijoada mineiro.

The most unassuming hole-in-the-wall place you'd ever imagine. Great food, great service, cold beer. It doesn't get much better. English-speaking staff makes the place that much better.

A friend and I stopped by here for a bite to eat after shopping in Santa Teresa, but were startled by the prices on the menu. She ordered only a glass of juice. I ordered one as well, plus a cup of black bean soup and a cheese sandwich. Oddly, the soup came out first, then my juice, then after... More
