Simplesmente is one of those restaurants that the locals recommend, but where you end up feeling very conscious of the fact that you aren't a local yourself. That said, the food is good and very cheap for what it is - the pasteis are particularly...More

Simplesmente is a traditional bar/restaurant in the heart of Santa Teresa. Cool atmosphere, good Brazilian food, cold beers. A lovely choice in Santa Teresa.

We came here twice whilst staying in Santa Teresa. Buzzy little spot. Informal. We had pizza both times because it was so good. Red wine by the glass excellent. We actually found the service quite helpful ...

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
