the appetizers - codfish fritters and ceviche were good, average fare for rio, but the main courses were drenched in salt. I wouldn't go back.

What is going on here it's hard to describe. Its a bar in Sante Theresa that's tried to invent itself as as a fish restraunt with completely over the top prices to catch people. My wife wanted garlic prawns the starter was $100 US so we ordered that of course it was not available as the have no fresh fish... More

Visiting Santa Teresa for a music festival, I came across Sobrenatural, which is primarily a fish and seafood restaurant. The décor, like the rest of the area, is bohemian with distressed wooden tables and a warm fun feel. The food (grilled baby octopus) was good although maybe a little overcooked. The atmosphere was excellent, but became a little too loud... More

We had some pasteis to start, siri queijo e camarao, crab, cheese and shrimp. Not really special. Then we shared the moqueca which was really not good. The fish was well cooked but the moqueca sauce was not how it's supposed to be. Something was off sure what, but made for an unpleasant meal. Our friends had the octopus rice... More

I was two weeks ago in this restaurant. The location is magic , Sobrenatural is in Santa Teresa a characteristic and historic borough of Rio. It was a high class borough, in fact most of the building are colonial villas, then between seventies and eighties was decayed and now is a bohemian place with bars, petit hotels and restaurant. The... More

The caipirinhas are very good, and you can ask for different kinds of cachaças. As for the food, I would strong recommend grilled fish from the Amazonian region (pirarucu or other).

After eating churrascos almost everyday in Rio, my body started to crave something different so we decided to visit this place for some Seafood. This place did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. We order Coco Do Surubim and it was delicious. We also had the fish ceviche, pasta with seafood and the seafood soup.... More

Almost completely empty on a Saturday night, after our meal I am not surprised. Starters were acceptable, Ceviche for my wife and grilled prawns for me, a huge portion, we then followed with a moqueca for two, we both thought that it was one of the most disgusting dishes we had ever experienced, and left most of it. We finished... More

Love the codfish and shrimp fritter here as well as the Shrimp Moqueca. So good I came back twice. The place has free wifi so it's a nice place to grab a bite and drink while checking your emails

Sobrenatural certainly isn't going out to wow its customers with a high spec interior. It's a matter of bare walls, bare floorboards and a curious partitioned off area for the kitchen. The menu is simply and predominantly seafood, which is what they specialise in. Our dish for two was a white fish with rice (plus nuts and probably something like... More

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.
