This restaurant was just a couple of blocks from our hotel. The first night we walked by, it was packed with a line up, so we figured we had to try it. Next night (Sunday) not as busy. Staff all spoke English & they had English menus (not our experience with other restaurants in the area).Ordering a protein main &... More

Good combination of location, good kitchen and bar, nice outdoor area and friendly service. Not cheap as all Rio. Try to come before 2pm tp avoid line.

We loved this small, popular place in Ipanema. The outside tables are a little tight (you won't be discussing anything deeply personal!), but the food was very tasty and good value. The wine, however, was quite pricey, but then this is the main restaurant street in Ipanema. We returned for an early dinner before we headed to the airport for... More

I have visited this restaurant past years and it was very good.. This evening, it was my last visit, never visit again because I believe the restaurant apply different price policy for tourists.

Dear Mr. Kerem, We have seen at Trip Advisor your comment regarding your visit and disappointment at our restaurant in Ipanema. Indeed we don’t charge 15% service tax for our clients. This is prohibited in our restaurant, we suggest 11%, which is complimentary. We don’t know if there was a miscalculation on our side (or both) but we fully understand... More

we ordered a pasta for the kids and two grilled fish. Fish were uncooked and after sending back to the kitchen they were burnt on the outside and still unbeatable. I should say they did try to compensate us and make us feel better, but we were just tired and unimpressed and continued our dinner in a nice place next... More

We found this place while looking for a drink, and once tasted the frozen ones, we decided to get back for dinner. The meat was really good: I had a sirloin steak and my partner an hamburger. She was delighted and I was really happy: one of the best steak ever had. Also the sides were very well done. The... More

My Lady and I had lunch on 9/29, very good. She had a very good salada crocante and I had a great cheeseburger Via Sete. Drinks were ice tea da Casa and a draft beer. Food was very good and well presented. Service was excellent. Overall a pleasant experience and worth the price. We will return

We were recommended this spot by our hotel hosts as a cheaper option in Ipanema. Upon arriving I was worried it was too fancy ( looked trendy) but we had amazing service and great food! The host and server spoke enough English - with English menus - to help us which we really appreciated and the burgers were unique and... More

Hostess spoke perfect English in this local spot on a quiet side street. We were seemingly the only tourists but felt very welcome. We sat outside on the patio and watched life pass by. The food was very good, service attentive and our Brazilian wine pleasing. We would go back again.
