Hidden on a windy road high up in Santa Teresa, Aprazível offers beautiful views and a lush garden setting. Grilled fish and roasted dishes showcase the country’s culinary highlights of land and sea. Standouts include orange-infused grilled fish with coconut rice, cashews and roasted plantains.

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.
