This bar-restaurant is a symbol of Ipanema due of the song "Girl of Ipanema". This is a good reason to visit this place but according to my personal opinion you are not going to "feel" the atmosphere of that "old period". In nowadays is a touristic place and they will treat you as a tourist. The place is visited by... More

Caiprinha - very good. Picanha - VERY good. Service - very good. Have a few caipirinhas and think about where you are sitting. You are sitting in the restaurant where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Morais wrote "Girl from Ipanema", or in Brazilian "Garota de Ipanema". My best meal in Brasil to date. I will return.

A symbol of Rio. I come here frequently to enjoy the atmosphere. Huge selection of food, most of it is ok, but definitely order the Picanha as it is served on a big metal grill.

The waiter was very rude; I ordered a chopp (used to be better at this place) and asked if I could get half a portion of a dish on the menu. This guy was rudest waiter I've seen in Rio and I said I did not want anything...I received a poorly served chopp and asked for the check (this guy... More

The food is good to average and the service is ok but for the history alone you have to visit here. I only wish I was eating here when Antonio Carlos Jobim was composing here.

Busy busy but such fun. We were actually seated immediately. What luck!. Waiters were attentive and interested in talking about the history of the restaurant. The food was very good. It was the perfect ending for our Rio trip.

Food is great quality and fresh made to order! The restaurant is Iconic and typically has a wait but less than 45 min usually. Also has American choices for the not so adventurous. Definitely a must when in Ipanema. Service is a bit off because of the big volume I suppose.

Too much commotion and too crowded and too expensive to be enjoyable. Everyone packed like sardines and tables too close together. Food very average and over priced and service too hurried and not attentive. It is a famous landmark so it needs to be visited but may be only for a drink in the afternoon when it is less crowded.

Very very good meat/ food in general. Nice atmosphere and fit actobats in the street outside the resturant. One small drawback was the high volume of "noise" in the resturant.

This is a great location and the food and atmosphere is great! It's only one block from the beach, very close to Posto Nove (post 9). There can be a line sometimes but the wait is worth it. Don't plan on eating too much before you go because you can certainly fill up on the picanha. Enjoy the whole thing... More
