A mythic place where the composers Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes used to drink and stay. I knew it many years ago, when it was called Veloso. Crowded, specially on weekends. Very good Picanha à Brasileira (meat served on a hot iron grill) and draft beer. Relatively expensive. One of my favorites in Rio.

Excellent service! great atmosphere! The picanha is the best dish! the pizzas are also great! The feeling to be where a great song was created is amazing! Too crowded so don't expect privacy at all! but in a way that makes the restaurant atmosphere amazing!

We were walking the streets of Ipanema when we stopped to this croweded restaurant. The atmospere was great though it was too noisy. It is quite poplular with good service.

Vinicious show bar and this restaurant face each other and both places are meeting points of Tom Jobim and Vinicious de Moraes, Kings of Bossa Nova.

Don't fool yourself: you don't want to visit this place because of the food, do you? So that's it, just go and enjoy.

I would recommend Garota de Ipanema, just because it is part of Rio that evey tourist should visit. The atmostphare is great, and yes there are locals there as well. The food is ok and the service is good. And after some caipirinha and a bottle good SAmerican wine you may even try to be Frank Sinatra with 'the girl... More

I was expecting bad food as it is a big tourist attraction, but I don't think that any meat product in Brazil can be bad! They had great service, tasty food and a fun atmosphere. Definitely a must visit while in Rio.
