Great food large portions

Great food and big portions. Nice to sit by the water and enjoy. The trout was amazing. The pork chops were just okay. Ended up here by accident

We first went to Garota in 2014 and found it much busier in 2015 but well worth the visit. Somehow the service happens very quickly and we enjoyed the picanha. for two, immensely. You have to be careful not to let the meat keep cooking on the burner however if you like your meat more on the rare side like... More

Although it is a famous restaurant at Rio - composer wrote a famous music there- I didn't like this restaurant at all! Location is ok because it is 2 blocks from Ipanema beach. However it is tight, uncomfortable, expensive, noisy, dirty! I didn't like their food or service either. The restroom is disgusting- small and dirty! I was there last... More

Until we went to Rio we were not aware that The Girl was a real person. So it was great to discover the restaurant where Jobin and Moreas wrote the song. There are photos of the girl hanging on the wall. Take the Metro to Gal de Osorio stop, and its a few minutes walk from there.

this is where the poet wrote the iconic words that are known around the world. The Girl From Ipanima Spirit is still there. The food is splendid, huge choice, attractive presentations . This is a must visit location.

Location is perfect for a quite dinner, overlooking the beach and the ocean, has a nicely decorated terrace and kind staff. They serve traditional brasilian meat, and actualy bring it to you on a little barbecue on the table itself! So you can burn it to the degree you want it (they bring it half blooded, so you actualy finish... More

Garota da Urca is located close to the little beach in Urca - a nice spot if you want to relax and look at people down at the beach - and have a drink or a meal. We stayed in a room close to the place and visited four times over ten days. The food quality was medium - at... More

Even if it is full of tourists like me, the decoration and the idea of the atmosphere around Vinicius and Tom Jobim singing Garota de Ipanema makes you enjoy the place. The food is good but not the best in Rio. What is delicious is the PICANHA for two.... enjoy it!

The restaurant is located 2 or 3 blocks away from the beach, small, and the relation price-quality is nto that good (food & service) they have as decoration some pictures from the musician, the girl, lyrics, etc, but definitly is not the best restaurant you can go in Rio
