Ipanema has closed down. It's been replaced with a pizza place called la cantina which is quite tasty though I prefer Kava in Kapok Hotel.

Went for my birthday during the week. We actually thought it would be like Texas de Brazil, but apparently for lunch they do a la carte. We decided to stay anyway and it was alright.

I went here to hang out with some friends around Christmas time. The drinks were good and the decor was actually really nice and trendy. Great place to kick back and relax after work.

Bland. Maybe the fault in my experience is that I was attending a Christmas luncheon for a business here. Seating was not well organized, the food was bland and the service about the same.

The location is drab at best ...and the main question is why in a small (relatively) city like POS would they open this when there is already a Texas de Brazil...There cant be room for two.
