“Cool vibe and great food!”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Typical Brazilian restaurant. One of the places that serves Feijoada during the weekdays and it is delicious! You see it on almost every table for a reason. You can order it for multiple people, but it is a huuuuge meal, so consider ordering for one less (order for 2 people if you are 3) unless you are all big eaters. My mom and I ordered for 2, and even with my boyfriend pitching in the three of us were unable to finish the meal. Great food!!

“Always crowded for the Feijoada.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Great crowd, friendly service and fantastic Feijoada. Good Caipirinhas, good food. We did not like the long wait but this occurred only once in our four trips there.

“Wow and WOW AGAIN!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

After obsessively watching Anthony Bourdain for my upcoming trip to Rio, I made it a point to not leave Rio without visiting this place.
What an amazing little place!

If you are hungry, come a little early because you will likely have to wait for a table. We had a group of 8 and waited about 40 minutes. In the meantime, we drank their amazing caipirinha's which are out of this world! Probably the best I had in Rio.

Once seated the first thing ordered was feijoada and more caipirinha's.

This place is known for having the best feijoada in Rio, and the reviews did not skip a beat! It was flavorful, smelled incredible and just... Oh my.

If you are looking to eat authentic Brazilian food away from the tourist areas, do yourself a favor and come here.
The vibe and atmosphere is just what the doctor ordered while on vacation!

Loved it!!

“Fejioada for lunch”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Reagan and I enjoyed a lunch here on Sunday. There was a little bit of a wait but it was worth the 20 minutes. I had a cold beer while we waited and read a magazine. The atmosphere is busy. The Fejioada is incredible. Reagan liked her Chicken Sandwich as well. Nice spot to visit.

“Not worth the wait”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We went to this place only because every single website recommended it as the best of Santa Teresa. We waited outside for almost an hour until we got our table, the place was packed and as expected we ordered the feijoada... It wasn't all that special, there are much better (less expensive, tastier and quicker) places in town... (Academia da Cachaça!).
