Don't miss the lobster and the carnival desert! The staff is great, good selection of wines and sparkling bottles. Great environment and service, could not recommend more!

Best food, great service, amazing place. Very unique experience in Rio, in an ordinary street of Santa Teresa lays this treasure. We went there twice, the tuna and the "Baião de seis" are our favorites.

Tereze is a wonderful restaurant with a breathtaking view of the city. I went with a large group (12-14 people) and they did a great job of accommodating all of us. The cocktails are fantastic and the wine list is solid. Most impressive however was the food. I went with the duck confit, which was cooked to perfection, and also... More

Most of the guests dressed formally. So keep that in mind when you'll visit this restaurant. The service is great, they are very gentle with the wine (extremely full glasses). Because most of the staff doesn't speak English, we weren't able to explain that we'd like to order a wine arrangement. We suggest Tereze to put this on the menu... More

Fantastic location with views over the city. Courteous staff. We enjoyed two starters, three mains and a shared dessert. The starters and dessert were excellent. A vegetarian mains was quite average. I ordered the steak, this was the dearest option and so I'd skipped a starter. Despite asking for "medium" I would say it was "rare". Parts of the beef... More

You must try this restaurant... Great service... The food is surprising and simple, well executed... I went for the lobster which is very generous... Keep some space for the dessert "Carnaval"...better make a reservation specially at night.

We enjoyed a magical evening at Tereze this past weekend, with a pre-dinner stop at the Hotel Santa Teresa's excellent bar as well. Our dinner service was cordial and attentive without being intrusive. A request to slightly revise a dish was accommodated with no problem or complaints. Once we ordered, a very nice amuse bouche was brought to the table... More

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.
