Certainly one of the best restaurants in Rio, located in the coolest neighbourhood. Perfect combination of Brazilian flavours and classy touches. The drinks menu has a large number of options, including unique drinks that you won't find elsewhere. A must go!

Decided to eat here as we didn't' feel like leaving this beautiful hotel plus the Santa Teresa area is not safe anyway to walk during night. All that resulted in getting us lucky to have had one of the best meal in Rio. The service is extraordinary and the food had form and taste. The dessert was outstanding as well.

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.
