But........The huge selection of salad and dessert items is breathtaking. Every thing from the fruit to the lettuce is fresh and crisp. The thing here is, is that you have to leave room for... More

This place is a jewel! I can't believe we waited until the 2nd to last night of our trip to eat there! If we would have known how good this place is we could have made all of our reservations there!

Ipanema is a Brazilian Steak house at night. There is a nice buffet where you can go up and get sides, but save the most room for the meats! There are several meats (I think about 5 maybe 6? I lost track) that come out of a roaster and are sliced table side. My favorite was the Pork and the... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Ipanema in Punta Cana on 11/6/13 can I say that the food was wonderful.My server Peter El Kilombo was outstanding. I have eaten at a Brazilian restaurant in Ohio an Rio Brazil, service an food at Ipanema was by far better. Thank you Peter for a great experience.

This was our second time vacationing at this resort and we've decided Ipanema is our favorite restaurant there. They are all amazing restaurants, but Ipanema is the BEST. Not only is the food...

The six of us were at Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana for 6 nights and we ate at Ipanema twice. The service was phenomenal. Ask for Nestor and Catalino to be your waiters. They were so much fun and always made sure we all had drinks and didn't need anything. All the different kinds of steaks were delicious, as... More
