Set up in the hills of Rio in the Santa Teresa district, this restaurant is a must for lunch or dinner. A very unique dining experience in what feels a little like large tree-houses, the views down over the centre of Rio and out to the bay are incredible. The menu here is really interesting as it combines traditional Brazilian... More

8pm Dinner. After a full day of touring we nearly missed our reservation. Not much of a view from where seated, but quality of service was excellent & attentive. Food was gorgeous, excellent. Only wish I wasn't as tired so as to soak up the wonderful atmosphere & experience. I certainly will return & highly recommend a visit here.

We went to this restaurant after several attempts and recommendations. It’s tricky to get there, but the views and atmosphere are worth it. Everyone is helpful and very polite, therefore the service was first class. The starters we had were amazing, the mains were good but we did expect a little more. The atmosphere is great, you feel like you... More

Amazing views of Rio, you eat surrounded by nature and even little monkeys come by sometimes. But the drinks and food are quite pricey- be prepared!

Aprazivel is definitely overprice for Brazilian, and some foreigners. However, as a Brazilian living abroad, I would say it is a great place to taste the local food, with a trained chef's touch. The heart of palm is unbelievable! It is probably one of the very few places in Rio you can order a Brazilian wine with confidence. It might... More

We came for lunch at this nice restaurant. It is a tree-house venue. Food and view were both awesome! It is a little on the pricey side; it is a fine dining place but worth the trip. I would definitely recommend to go there for lunch or late afternoon drinks for sunset view. Note that the location may be hard... More

Our experience started off on the right foot as it was almost sunset and our table had a great scenic view. The restaurant is extremely cool and blends perfectly with the surroundings. Our drinks were alright but once the food started coming we felt a bit frustrated as both fish dishes were overcooked. The dessert was great but when the... More

Neighbourhood 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.
