Top choice


in Santa Teresa & Lapa

Hidden on a winding road high in Santa Teresa, Aprazível offers beautiful views and a lush garden setting. Grilled fish and roasted dishes showcase the country's culinary highlights from land and sea. Start with grilled heart of palms before moving on to standout main courses like delectable moquequinha (seafood stew), roast pork with pineapple chutney and polenta, or house-made vegetarian ravioli.

This place is a bit out of the way, so call ahead; sometimes the restaurant is booked up by groups. Take a taxi and have your map handy, as drivers don't always know the spot.
