As a fan of seafood and Brazilian moquecas, I went to this place with my family when visiting Santa Teresa. The place is not fancy but has a pretty decoration. Host and waiters are friendly and polite, even though it seems there were more customers there that they could handle. The food is really good and price is somewhat high,... More

if you are patient enough to wait 1h30 for your plate to come, then try Sobrenatural. We came for lunch and ended up having an early dinner. Don't even try to complain to the waiter. He avoids making eye contact not to be bothered. Plus, bathrooms are in terrible shape! The food is good, with zero glam (the two fishes... More

Probably the best meal I had during my recent three-day stay in Rio. The ceviche was fresh and expertly prepared. My family and I then shared a sumptuous shrimp dish w pumpkin and various spices. Brazilian food at its best.

We have seen this restaurant on trip advisor and we are just disappointed after visiting. We are traveling now for almost two month in South America, following many recomandations, today it was the worst food ever. Next to awfull quality we had one of the most expensive meals in this period! Miss this restaurant and go ever you find space...

We shared some appetizers and still couldn't finish, but the baby squid we had was brilliant. Popular with locals, so didn't feel too much like a Lonely Planet photoshoot!

Really average. Pastries were nice. Caesar salad was doused in sauce, stale lettuce and the bread was stale. Overall would not recommend this restaurant. Also super expensive. Better down the road.

I went this restaurant with big expectations but I really disappointed. I tried special mussels on the menu. But I think there was 7-8 mussels on the plate, the rest was onion and peppers. The food was so salty. Risotto was like a normal rice food what you can cook in your home. The prices was really high. I think... More

Let make clear that I am a local and have very high standards for seafood - I don't eat red meat and am always on the look for a great fish dish. Anyhow, My boyfriend and I were headed to the sophisticated Aprazivel - also in Santa Tereza - but decided to give Sobrenatural a chance after my brother recommendation.... More

Highly recommended octopus was off - waiter took it back and didn't charge without blinking.....Moqueca - I've had better lets say "everywhere" - not going back. It's a shame because there are so few all seafood restaurants in Rio.

The Sobrenatural is a very good seafood restaurant. Service is good and friendly. The restaurant is located in the charming Santa Teresa, where you can find restaurants and clubs and small shops with handicraft.
