I came back to Esplanada Grill after a few years since the last time I had dinner in this characteristic restaurant of Ipanema. I can say that they still serve one of the best Picanha of the city, but prepare yourself to pay it a...More

The Esplanada Grill is a comfortable, neighborhood restaurant, but in a trendy, expensive part of Ipanema. The food is simple -- grilled meat and fish -- but very high quality. The service is very good. The prices are on the high side.

We were recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed with food. The steaks were huge and the beef ribs tender and quality. The kicker is the service charge £9 per person for bread and salad I would still recommend this place

Perhaps a bit less quantity over quality. Not saying the food wasn't good but such huge portions sometimes is off putting as you can't really enjoy the meal. A starter portion of calamari could have fed 3-4 people and do you really need 2 portions...More

Ipanema
Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the

can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
