Had heard of this place from a vlogger on YouTube, and was very excited to have the opportunity to try Brazilian food with authentic Amazonian ingredients. I was definitely not disappointed. The Brazilian music and relaxed vibe of the place set a comfortable atmosphere, while...More

The place is very nice and cosy and the food is amazing! I went with friends on a Sunday afternoon, we took 3 starters (probably the best part of the lunch!) and 4 main courses and they were all really good. It definitively deserves a...More

Seafood heaven. Our friend we've visited here brought us to Santa and I cannot talk better about this place. The menu was incredible, even if it was quite expensive, I think this can be seen as an exclusive experience to come closer to #1 cuisine...More

We walked by several times before we found a suggestion to try the bahia style cooking , and particularly vatapas and ventured in because it looks very humble from the exterior. We had no idea there was a lovely garden /terrace in the back overlooking...More

Unless you like your drinks (like gin fizz without gin) and your meals (like veg rice without vegs) with half the ingredients written on the menu do not go there. Unfriendly service and no effort to please. One waiter a model of total arrogance. Overpriced...More

There are several great dishes and diffrente combination of flavors. Everything we've ordered was really good and the service was also very good. One thing must be said, the place is not that beautiful, it is not really taken care and the outdoor seats dont...More

I was drawn here by some overblown reviews. Yes it is good, but by no means great. The views and the sunset were not exceptional and the menu a little too busy and over-inventive. On a positive and practical note, it is easily accessible on...More

We were visiting Santa Teresa on St. George Day last Monday, strolling around looking for a nice place that offers vegetarian options for lunch. My girlfriend and me were pleasantly surprised to see their menu that included vegetarian Brazilian dishes. Service was quick and simple,...More

We really enjoyed this lovely quiet terrace in Santa Teresa hilltop in Rio. With soft music and serene views over the villas on the hill, it provides a perfect setting for a romantic dinner with food unparalleled to anything we had tasted before in Brazil....More

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.
