This is the Santa Teresa Hotel restaurant. We stayed at the hotel twice and ate there twice. The food is fantastic. We ordered just about everything (big eater) and found them all to be excellent. Price is on the high side, but compared to top notch restaurants in the states, it is a bargain.

It can take a little time to get the restaurant depending on where you are staying, but the hotel, bar and restaurant are well worth the trip. We were fortunate enough to have a table near the windows, which really adds to the occasion, being able to look over the darkened streets of Santa Teresa. The restaurant itself has been... More

This being a Relais Chateau property, I had high expectations, which were not disappointed in the food, but sorely disappointed in service. There was no host/hostess, and patrons who came in had to either wait to be ignored, or go hunt after waiters to get seated. The wait staff could not explain the menu, and kept saying "no" to orders... More

Amazing food, service and taste! The restaurant atmosphere is lovely and while dining you can admire the beautful view of the city. The maître was a great help while choosing what we were going to have for diner as everything on the menu looks delicious! We tried the Charlotte de langoustine, the goat cheese, lamb rack and lobster served with... More

The lobster with pink peppercorn sauce was stunning and is also on there al carte menu ... The location and views are excellent as it is part of... More

We stayed at the Santa Teresa hotel and tried the restaurant that was recommended to us. Very well designed, nice atmosphere, great views. The food was top notch, a Brazilian twist to some French classics. Staff were very polite, but not quite up to the level of the place.

The food was excellent, the service was friendly and attentive. Not a budget meal, but good value for money and a great experience. Try to get a seat by the window so that you can watch the city dip into darkness.

If you are a food enthusiast, this restaurant should be on your list! The atmosphere is romantic, the view spectacular, the music subdued (you can actually converse with each other!), and the food is truly outstanding. If you think good food is lots of food, this place is not for you. Also don't expect bargain prices. But I believe the... More

We were staying at the Santa Teresa hotel and having had a great day chilling by the pool and exploring the bars nearby we decided to stay local and eat in the hotel. Food was some of the best I've had in a while right off from the breads they offered. Great choice of food and wine. Service was good... More

Just like most restaurants in Rio, the only vegetarian option is: pasta! They had previously two exquisite vegetarian dishes with artichokes and several vegetables but they've changed according to the brazilian commercial idea of vegetarianism: "Give them carbohydrate and charge like meat" (cheap to make, easy to profit!)! Sad!
