I had dinner in this palace with a colleague during a business trip. I can confirm that the food is ok. Not the greatest meat I ever had, but good. The buffet is also very nice and full of interesting things. But at the end when you got the fix price dinner (not including regular drinks...) and two beers the... More

Dear Fabio M, Thank you very much for dining at Ipanema and taking the time to review the same on Tripadvisor.

Comparable to the Churrascarias in North America. Good selection of beef, chicken and lamb. My favorite being the Rib Eye and the house special pecan. Service has always been great. With lots of attention from servers even when the place is busy. They also have great desserts.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it is always a good feed. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food tasty and environment lively. It is not the location for a business meeting. It is a place to go with a group of friends.

Nice Brazilian restaurant in the Marriott Marquis in the city centre. Brunch on a Friday is excellent, with good food, plenty of booze and great service. Make sure you book a table though as it can get busy.

Dear Skypolice, Thank you for reviewing Ipanema's brunch on Tripadvisor, and thank you for your positive feed-back. Brunch can be indeed a very busy meal period in our Brazilian Churrascaria, so a table booking is highly recommended to avoid disappointment. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
