Situated in the heart of Santa Teresa, Rio’s most beautiful neighbourhood, Térèze is a gorgeous, high-end restaurant attached to the equally fancy Santa Teresa Hotel. The wonderful views, attentive service and innovative menu make this is a special occasion kind of place – highly recommended.

If you like the sound of Térèze but need to be careful with your money, there are a couple of options. Firstly, you could just go for drinks – there is a really nice bar next door with four-poster style couches and the cocktails and snacks are very good. Another option is to go for lunch on a weekday (Monday to Friday). Don’t forget to have a wander round and check out the swimming pool on the roof!
