Brilliant food. Staff have very little English (which is to be expected), and nobody told us that most meals were meant for 2 people, which means that we ended up with enough food for 6/7. However it was all delicious, and the place was filled...More

Food was atrocious and expensive. Restaurant relies on the famous song and nothing more. Wait staff were friendly, would not recommend.

The food has a soul, it´s a typical Carioca Bar, one can go wrong by stopping by. The location is excellent, the staff is great. However I was disappointed with the bathrooms and the floor of the bar. A refurbishment must be done, they must...More

We stumbled upon this place in a stroke of blind luck. If we’d known about it, we would have searched for it. Notable for its association with Tom Jobim and his co-writer of The Girl from Ipanema, the place still packs in locals for the...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
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

I do not recall seeing any vegan options and certainly they are very meat focussed - probably not ideal for Vegans to be honest
