This restaurant is not a must visit because of its food, although the piquenha (I know I'm spelling that wrong too!!) is good. It's a must visit for the ambiance and the history. And just think how cool it is you can tell your friends you ate at the restaurant where the world famous song was written!!! Find that one... More

Came here on the last night of my 2-day stay in Rio at Ipanema Inn 2 blocks away. Had ran by it in the morning and thought it looked nice and the menu had the flounder with shrimp sauce that I had in Foz do Iguazu earlier that week that I thought was so tasty. Even though the price was... More

It is an iconic place but i could not recommend it. Food is OK but nothing special compared to other restaurants. Overpriced as one would have expected but what really p-d me off was the waiter that tried to overcharge us om the bill. He persisted that he was right but finally he admitted to correct the bill, whitout any... More

Try the special of the restaurant, some beef to cook on a hot plate! A famous place in town to spend a good moment, though it is so loud that it can be quite hard to hear you neighbour!

I was looking forward to dining at this icon restaurant in Rio. Maybe my expectations were too high but I was extremely disappointed. First the service. It was average to say the least we were ignored for a while before served. The prices where incredibly expensive for what you get both in terms of quality and quantity. We had some... More

Always steaming full, and very charming. Maybe not that appealing at first glance, but full of atmosphere, good service and good Food. Loved the tropical pizza with banana and pineapple.

I've been on two occasions to this restaurant and found that apart from the name of the restaurant, food and drinks are not in line with what you'd expect. It is located on the corner of two quite busy streets and offer outside dining but other than that there is nothing else to add.

We expected a tourist trap, but were pleasantly surprised. The Picanha is extremely good and is enough for two. My son helped cook the meat on our table. He had a blast. Make sure you only cook the Picanha for a few seconds on each side because it cooks fast. My kids had pasta with white sauce. They both finished... More

Perfect restaurant to start a night in Ipanema. Picanha is very tasty, beer is good, ambiance is good and place is always crowded. Only drawback: sometimes there is so much smoke due to the picanhas that you end up smelling like one.
