We were recommended here by our hotel concierge and we were not disappointed. We wanted to try everything on the menu but were only 2 people. Everything we did order was great and everything people around us had looked great! We recommend it highly!

The restaurant offers excellent food and views. Definitely better choice than Tereze restaurant in the same neighborhood. Service was excellent in my case. English is not widely spoken by waiters, but they have dedicated people who can help with the translation.

Tables outside are mostly for four people. I was reserving 2 months in advance, as the place is quite popular.

I went to Aprazível with a group of 12 foreigners (I'm Brazilian). Everything regarding the food was excellent! Absolutely delicious!

However, the service wasn't good from the beginning. They brought things we didn't order, charged them in the bill later, were confused all the time about the orders (that I did in Portuguese, so no reason for that).

But the worst was yet to come. We asked them to call some cabs, and to tell us when we should go upstairs to leave the place and to wait for the cabs. The waiter told me and we left. After 10 minutes, the first cab showed up. I confirmed with the driver that other cabs were coming. Nothing happened for the next 15 minutes. We were lucky to get two cabs from people that were getting there. However, we still needed one more, so I entered the restaurant again and asked them where the cabs were.

A young guy that was the host said that we shouldn't be waiting outside, and that the cabs were coming. I said the waiter told us to wait there, and he was very unpolite saying that I should've talked to him. His attitude was unbelievable. I told him there was no way for me to know that in advance, and he kept his attitude until the end. Eventually, the cab showed up and - surprise - it was the same first cab! We waited until the driver went to Copacabana with the first group and finally got back. And apparently, that was their plan since the beginning!

The total waiting time for the cab was 1h15min. And I could have called the cab myself, if I had known that before...

Again, the food there is fantastic, absolutely delicious. However, in an upscale restaurant like this, a poor service should not be even considered as an option.
