Beautiful old colonial type building in the centre of Santa Teresa. Service was slow and inattentive (it was not busy). They ran out of a lot of ingrediënts too. The organisation needs attention.

This charming restaurant is nested in the upper floor of an ancient manor amidst trees and plants. Food (especially meat dishes) is absolutely delicious, cooked in original ways and nicely presented. Staff speaks good English too, which is appreciable!

This place was recommended by the owner of our B&B for their pizza. We were taken to a table quickly and drinks were brought over shortly afterwards. Each of the three courses took a while to reach the table but that didn't bother us in the slightest! It was nice to sit on the terrace drinking, chatting and people watching.... More

We went for dinner, and had a good meal. The terrace is really cute, lots of fairly lights and a good atmosphere. Food was good, I had the chicken with rice and beans, and my husband had a pizza. Both nice. Service was fine and prices reasonable.

Multi-level restaurant with a large tree growing thru - so beautiful. Great ambiance and really good food. Had some Brazilian dishes as well as wood fired oven pizza which was very good. Lots of beer choices and a fun experience.

We would have walked by this location if it weren't for a friend who had previously dined there. The first level is for lunch; up the long flight of stair is for evening dining among the trees. We all enjoyed our meal selections with no disappointments.

If you don't mind a long wait the pizza is good. Very good. Well ... Not sure if my judgement is clouded due to the wait ... No, I'll give it its due ... It's good pizza. This is a great looking place. Beautiful old colonial type building in the centre of Santa Teresa - worth checking out if you... More

Went there for lunch last weekend. We couldn't go upstairs till 1pm on the dot.

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.
