We ended up next to some interesting people on both sides so had some great conversations. While these were english speakers the restaurant was not overun with tourists- they were tour guides, teachers etc. THe... More

This place was pretty awesome. I don't speak Portuguese and they speak very little English but we were able to order a range of tasty food from chicken to some sort of pot of meats and beans to steak, fries, rice... everything that came out was pretty good. The tall beer and the half a dozen caphirinias were pretty good... More

Went here to try the feijoada as recommend by the guy who works at our hostel. Not exactly back packer prices (about $100R for 'feijoada for 2' and one beer), but cheap in comparison to others! Really enjoyed the dish, huge servings, really tasty!

Two of us ordered sirloin steak, incredible bad quality, a grub, almost like dog food. Plates returned to kitchen nearly as they came. My son ordered salmon, OK, but completely overpriced. My wife was the only lucky one, sth. deep-fried, eatable. Terrible, you better stay away.

Great little bar in Santa Teresa that feels very real, always busy and full of locals. I would highly recommend trying the oxtail it is simply delicious. Ask for the Helles beer it's not on the menu and is superb. Finally be prepared to wait on the weekend but order snacks and enjoy waiting in the sunshine. Overall great Brazilian... More

Very good food for bringing gringos but also for locals. Food is not incredible, but very good. The feijoada is a classic.

There's nothing to talk about this bar which has been serving food and drinks for years. We live close to Santa Teresa and it was holiday. So the mood striked to go and enjoy some food very different and country like delicious. Sometimes you have to wait in line to get the table if it's a big group of people... More

A nice bar to visit if in Santa Teresa. We were there on a Friday afternoon and the place was packed. Ordered four dishes, only three arrived, two of which were not what we ordered!! This was sadly hilarious; we kept the dishes we hadn't ordered as they were actually quite tasty. Would recommend, only 3 stars due to the... More

Tucked away on the streets of Santa Teresa district, it is good, wholesome food but might be considered unusual to British/European tastes. Take the historic tram from the centre (near the pyramid cathedral) R4 return, and follow the unused tramlines almost to the door but have a map. Not for late at night, so they say.

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.
