I went here because of the historical aspect regarding the song the girl from ipanema. very annoying were the buskers who play musical instruments whilst you are trying to eat then ask you for money. The management do not even care about you trying to eat in silence.They should tell the buskers to... More

Palm hearts salad is from a tin can and not tasty!!! Extra virgin olive oil has no charm. Caipirinhas are below average. Very expensive for the value. I was very disappointed with food, drinks and atmosphere, but, staff was kind.

While wandering around Ipanema last night, we decided to try this restaurant due to the number of people eating there. In this case, it was a bad move and we were unaware of it's 'iconic' status. This is obviously why there were so many there. We started with a shared serving of the croquettes. Just average in flavour and very... More

food is good and service is friendly. You want to visit this establishment because of the history on the walls mostly. Portions are quite generous here like most places in Brazil! It's one of those places that are a landmark you need to visit if you're in Ipanema.

We managed to get in the door in a short amount of time. I chose this place because of the history and it was a block back from our hotel. A good variety of foods, but we all went for the steak dishes. I had the sirloin with mashed potatoes and cheese, husband had the filet and frittes, and son... More

This bar has history all over its walls. Drinks were delicious. Service was outstanding. I felt I was parting every time I went during my stay.
