The caipirinhas are very good, and you can ask for different kinds of cachaças. As for the food, I would strong recommend grilled fish from the Amazonian region (pirarucu or other).

After eating churrascos almost everyday in Rio, my body started to crave something different so we decided to visit this place for some Seafood. This place did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. We order Coco Do Surubim and it was delicious. We also had the fish ceviche, pasta with seafood and the seafood soup.... More

Almost completely empty on a Saturday night, after our meal I am not surprised. Starters were acceptable, Ceviche for my wife and grilled prawns for me, a huge portion, we then followed with a moqueca for two, we both thought that it was one of the most disgusting dishes we had ever experienced, and left most of it. We finished... More

Love the codfish and shrimp fritter here as well as the Shrimp Moqueca. So good I came back twice. The place has free wifi so it's a nice place to grab a bite and drink while checking your emails

Sobrenatural certainly isn't going out to wow its customers with a high spec interior. It's a matter of bare walls, bare floorboards and a curious partitioned off area for the kitchen. The menu is simply and predominantly seafood, which is what they specialise in. Our dish for two was a white fish with rice (plus nuts and probably something like... More

The restaurant is great. Nice environment, tasty food, but it was cold. It seems they're not prepared to attend a lot of people.topreparetototoa to ayo attend

A friend and I were looking for a Brazilian restaurant in Santa Teresa/Lapa and this place was perfect! We went on the later side so there weren't many people there, but the food was great. We ordered moqueca to share -- it was plenty big and not expensive, but delicious! Would highly recommend the dish. Dessert was great too --... More

No justification for the cumulus of mistakes. a. It took around 40 minutes to get my dish on the table. This was the common pattern for the tables around b. Not the cleanest place in which I have been. Waiters did not seem to care much about cleaning tables. C. Price. Totally excessive: 75 BRS for a shrimp dish (i.e.... More

This restaurant made me join trip advisor. Food is poor and they must have 2 menus one for locals and one for tourist. Paid 5 times more than an excellent restaurant down the road. We are staying in the Santa Teresa hotel. Lunch main was R45 each here was R75!!!!!!! Avoid at all costs.

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.
