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. Its terraces, patios, and Amazonian-style thatched huts all afford commanding views of Guanabara Bay. The menu creatively interprets traditional dishes from northeastern Brazil: prawns grilled with saffron rice, fresh crab salads, and tropical fish sautéed in orange sauce, served with cashew-and-coconut rice and a roasted banana. It's a perfect lazy lunching spot. Get in the mood with a custom-designed, devilishly potent cocktail—we recommend the Carambela, which combines sparkling wine, rum, star fruit, and mint—and save room for one of the exotic ice creams whipped up from the cacaolike cupuaçu, the energy-giving açaí palm fruit, or Brazil nuts.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays noon to 1 am, Sundays noon to 7 pm.
