Nice bar near the beach, great for group of friends or couples. We were there for pre-drinks, service was great. If your looking for something nicer than the local bars this is the place.

My boyfriend and I ate here for an evening meal. First impressions are that this is an upmarket establishment with an art deco vibe. I'd definitely say that this is the nicest looking restaurant we've eaten at so far. Looking at the menu, the food was reasonably priced for a classy looking beach front restaurant. However, one thing that we... More

The place is right across from Copacobana Beach and the outer tables have a view of the going-ons along the boulevard. We were even entertained by street performers who took up a lane of traffic to entertain the restaurant for tips. I ordered the seafood special which was fried breaded shrimp and fried calamari. The platter was ok. Definitely a... More

Went here around 7.30pm for dinner which isn't a busy time by Ipanema standards. Waited 25 minutes to order and only then did it happen after my husband eventually got someone's attention. We had vesper burger and fish and chips for main, the burger was cold and the fries that came with it under cooked. The fish was soggy as... More

Very good cocktails and draft beer. Good music and good service. Check the Sub Astor, a hidden section of the bar. Good food and service. In the heart of Ipanema.

Went here during carnival at around 6pm. The place has an American vibe with food like burgers. For a Brazilian touch we tried the shrimp and heart of palm mini baked tarts/pie. I don't know the word in Portuguese so to explain to explain it it's like a pie but with different stuffing in it. It tasted great! They also... More

Spent a couple of hours here sheltering from a storm. The cocktails were good, croquettes snacks tasty and the bar has a nice classic French café/bistrot feel. Would come again for a few drinks after lying on the beach.

Certainly a vibrant place and good location on sea front. Food was OK but nothing special. I had fried sea food and had fried vegetables which padded out the plate. Two of the draft beers were not available, the one draft which was were served as half measures with more froth than liquid. There has to be better places to... More

The evening started out with spectacular cocktails and then swung into dinner. Can definitely recommend the Il Cardinale cocktail - delicious fire water. But the surprise of the night was the unbelievable steak. Just an absolutely delicious chunk of prime beef - perfectly cooked and seasoned. Couldn't ask for more. We done Bar Astor - a jewel in Ipanema's crown
