Espírito Santa is set in a beautifully restored mansion in Santa Teresa. Take a seat on the back terrace with its sweeping views or inside the charming, airy dining room, and feast on rich, expertly prepared meat and seafood dishes from the Amazon and the northeast.

Top picks include the moqueca, made with a delicious river fish (pintado), and the slow-roasted pork ribs served with sweet potato. Don't miss the creative cocktails, some of which feature juices from Amazonian fruits.
