“A tropical garden filled with exotic plants, monkeys, and birds is the spectacular setting for this family restaurant serving pan-Brazilian dishes.”
"Nestled in a private jungle of jackfruit, mango, and star fruit trees, this artfully designed eatery became Santa Teresa's first gourmet restaurant when it opened in 1996."
"Tables spill out over the gardens and patios, offering views of downtown Rio by day, and warm and exotic lighting in the evening." Full review
View junkies should ask for a table on the house veranda, or on the patio tables outside by the bar.
"This open-air restaurant specializes in seafood and traditional Brazilian dishes like galinhada caipira (chicken risotto with mineiro sausage, chicory, and beans)."
"Excellent, though expensive, French-influenced Minas Gerais dishes, plus an attractive terrace with wonderful views across Rio."

The shady garden with its soothing birdsong provides a relaxing setting in which to sip one of the special cachaças and choose from a menu that offers a whole host of delicious dishes from right across Brazil.
