Less then we expected

The Terèze is situated in Santa Teresa, with a rather nice view of the town and the bay. It's part of the Relais&Châteaux-chain, which sounded promising. We went there on a Saturday, for lunch.

Tereze is a beautiful restaurant in an oasis like location. The food and service were very good. We enjoyed the setting and calm before exploring this area of Rio.

We stayed in the Copacabana area and had despaired of finding a decent meal. On our last day, we took a taxi to Santa Teresa. Walking down the street, we noticed the Hotel Santa Teresa and went in to take a look because we had stayed at a Relais & Chateaux property in Brugges. A young man at the desk... More

It might, might, have been a genuine mixup which caused us to have our credit card charged precisely 200 BRL more than the bill. But when my husband asked to see the bill again after paying (it had been removed when the credit card machine was proffered) no-one came near us. We were left waiting for some thirty minutes. The...

The best table is facing large open windows - there are only two and you can't book them in advance, only request. You MUST HAVE the lobster: 10/10

First I would like to say a special thank to Rafael and Yamila, whom made my experience extra special. They are very attentive people. In Tereze I had the best meal in a very long time in Rio. I had the tasting menu and everything was spectacular. The ambiance is great with a beautiful view. The service is top notch... More

I was invited to a reception in the bar area, followed by a dinner. The atmosphere and lighting is very modern and the restaurant/hotel has a stunning view. The food was well prepared (very good filet, perfectly cooked). The only down-side was, if you are a lot of people you have no voice left at the end of the evening...the... More

As the restaurant of a Relais & Châteaux hotel, Tereze offers excellent and very creative food, using typically Brazilian ingredients to propose innovative and very tasteful dishes (e.g. Codfish "escondidinho", crayfish with açai...). The atmosphere is very pleasant and cosy, with good music and nice views on Sta Teresa. Special mention for offering perfect service even on a rainy evening... More
