I know , I know its a tourist trap but I couldn't resist. We both love that song and we really enjoyed sharing a bottle of wine and mixed grill at the cafe where the song "The Girl from Ipanema "was written. Legend says a this is the cafe by which the 15 year old girl strolled on her way... More

Fun restaurant with great sharing meat dishes which is a cheap way to feed the family if there is a few of you. Definitely recommend you go as a group as you'll get more bang for your buck. Don't be deterred by the queue, it moved quite quickly for us.

Obviously took a selfie there. Food was ok and quick. Service was strange - the waiter was quick but managed not to smile, not to thank, not to ask anything instead of paying the service fee with cash instead of card.

I came here because my friend told me where the famous song originated from girl from ipanema. This place is hot inside and there is no air condition but many ceiling fans. I would recommend shorts and tshirt here. I had the picanha rechaud and it was the best I ever had. I did not like the fact that the... More

The restaurant is known for the quality of its barbecued meat Picanha - at the table - generous portions great french fries, rice and black beans and farofa (manioc flower meal cooked with eggs really good) It has a vast menu - and people drift in from the beach for a beer, a caipirinha (sugar cane rum, lime and sugar...

Historically is a nice place to visit in Rio, but with a nice picture is enough, you don't need eat there. Food is OK, service is OK as well. But there are much better choices for the same price in this city.

As title, nice place (famous because artist Jobim took inspiration for the famous song: garota de Ipanema), food ok. To be honest nothing special but tasty. Size portions big (order meal for 1 and share if don't eat a lot) service very, very bad. Waiter very rude, no kind with us and other tables, we had to call other waiters... More

Had so much fun here, We drank beer in the afternoon like Tom Jobim did when he wrote the famous song "Girl from Ipanema" and sang along with the entertainers on the street.

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
