This place doesn't look that great but the feijoada is absolutely addictive. Came back three times in a row for lunch. We were staying down the street at Saint Teresa Hotel. You can smell the garlic when the Chef starts cooking down the street which serves to beckon you to come to lunch... Gained 5 pounds but it was worth... More

It is ALWAYS busy - night and day as we'd walk past it. We didn't really see what the fuss was all about - better pricing for food and drinks in other bars.

A simple eatery in Santa Teresa is great to share with friends a feijoada. The resto has a great vibe, the service is friendly and the price is very democratic.

This bar is recomended by several tourist magazines/ guides, as for typical Brazilian food, in the nice Santa Teresa area. The set up is nice as a local ambience, the atention is just "propper", but the food is poor. Mostly because they have frozen components to the dishes you get badly cooked soaked dishes.. with total lack or very little... More

Asked for fried chicken and got grilled chicken. It was tough. Only could eat the fries. Paid anyway. Stick to the Rio food to be safe.

Bistrot type restaurant with a large selection o Brazilian dishes. The feijoada was particularly good and can be shared out. The decoration is fun, they have a great selection of beers. Staff is friendly and efficient. The area around is also very enjoyable. It's very close to the tram station Largo de Guimares in Santa Teresa.

Went there with my girlfriend and a friend (two girls). We got the the "pastel de feijoada", which was awesome, and then we ordered a feijoada for 2 (since the waiter said could do for 1 guy with 3 girls). The feijoada was very good, with lots of pieces of different meat, but of course we were still hungry! At... More

We were stopping in Santa Teresa and made the most of a cheap day out see the ruins, selaron steps and returning by tram, also free. Lunch here after arriving was a pleasant experience. The feijoada portion for one was enough for me and my wife to eat for lunch. It could be a rich meal to eat at night... More

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
