Unfriendly service and atmosphere, not even a smile. Food was lukewarm (we were the only couple in there so it's not lik they were busy). There is also nothing really German about this place. Save your money and go to Explorer bar up the road instead which serves awesome cocktails and lovely finger food (be sure to go at happy... More

This restaurant offers mainly German style sausages and Kessler (smoked pork chops), accompanied by sauerkraut and potato salad. Most of the dishes we ordered were well prepared and tasty. Bottled beer of various sorts, but no draft beer or wine, is available. The decoration is sort of offbeat homey. The location in Rio's quaint hillside Santa Teresa quarter makes for... More

We had been looking for a place to listen to Samba music - mind you the bend was in their 20s-30s, but they did such a great job of creating a chill happy environment. Note that you will have to pay 10R per person to enjoy the music (which is NOT advertised as you walk in), but it was worth... More

If you are looking... More

We dropped into Mikes last night. Looking for somewhere to grab a light snack late in the evening. We were initially reluctant because the menus were in Portuguese however, the barman was very helpful, the food was excellent, and drinks more than reasonable, excellent value compared to some Santa teresa's other bars, a large bottle of beer was Rs 7...

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
