Located high above Rio, this restaurant is a great option for either a romantic or group dinner. Just make sure the weather is nice as all seating is outdoors, many under Tiki huts, multi-levels. The whole place is like a giant tree house. Very unique and relaxing. The view at night with all the twinkling lights is gorgeous and the food, albeit pricey, is spot on. I went twice with groups both times and every single meal was perfect. Nobody returned a dish or had anything else to say but "delicious".

Don't miss this place on your next visit to Rio!!

There are many restaurants to choose from when visiting Santa Teresa. We choose this one as its perched up in the trees with a romantic view over guanamara bay, especially on a clear sunny day. The menu has many options ranging from seafood to meat. One of the dishes we choose was a grilled octopus served alongside lightly seasoned grilled vegetables and olives.
The staff was very helpful and very service oriented.

It's not an easy-access location. The food is nothing particularly extraordinary; there are better restaurants at more affordable prices. The physical aspect of the restaurant is what really stands out: the view and the decor. Perhaps, for a one time special occasion, it might be worth the money to check it out. But don't get overtly excited because the portions are very small considering the price (and yes, we get that gourmet food is like that) and the service is not necessarily the friendliest.

Beautiful restaurant, natural decoration, few seats inside, more seats outside, so, it's better if you go during the daylght, and it's warm so that you may profit from the view and the open air space.
Very expensive, though...

This definitely has the "Wow" factor being perched on a hillside overlooking Rio. The choice of food was very good and not too fancy whilst the wine list was accessible which a great, helpful wine chap. A must when in Rio.
