Nice pizza and juice

Had a really nice pizza here with my girlfriend. It's a good idea to share meals in Brazil.. they are usually bigger in size and you'll save money as well.

We went here primarily because this is where "The Girl from Ipanema" was written. A large photo of one of the napkins on which it was written is attached to one of walls inside and also to the exterior. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food good and reasonably priced. This is only a few blocks from Caesars Park... More

Very impressed! I have heard the song my entire life, but did not expect to have such great experience. I took my wife there and was very happy to have done so. The bar has pictures all over the wall and is well kept. The food was very good, I had the picanha and it was amazing. It is the... More

This place is such a landmark that it doesn't require any recommendation! Old playground of Vinicius de Moraes and Tom Jobim, composers of the world famous song "The Girl from Ipanema", where they used to sit and watch the girls, from where they first spotted HER (The Girl from Ipanema - for real!). It captures the he very essence of... More

Four of us had the picanha and when it came thought "goodness we'll never eat all that, one between us would have done" - then we polished off the lot! Service was fabulous with a really lovely waiter and the caipirinhas were awesome, especially the Caipamagnifico (phew). Great lunch, not too pricey - followed by a siesta!

We had a lovely meal here. It wasn't cheap but the service was good and the food was awsome. We over ordered, the mains are very big so really only need a main.

Really a great place to come eat and enjoy the atmosphere. The service was fast and friendly. We shared the steak on the grill or better known as "The grill" between three of us and there was plenty of steak. The entire meal for three people was still under $50 including drinks.

Love the location and the wait staff and the zany noise level, but outside of the cuban chicken, the food is actually quite poor. Definitely stay away from the sole, which is not sole at all.
