My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for our lunch after reading so many positive reviews, and they weren't wrong! We took the bus from Copacabana to Santa Teresa and after a long walk uphill in the heat, Armazem Sao Thiago was just what we...More

During our stay in Rio de Janeiro we had the opportunity to eat at the "Bar do Gomez". The food was excellent as well as the caipirinha. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is great.

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.
