Just for the picahna

If you like the meat, you have to try this restaurant: their picahna is really fantastic!!! But if your wife is veg (like my wife...) is better that you go somewhere else, nearly impossible to find something of acceptable. The location is very simple, the service is good

I ordered a steak .... what I got was almost the whole fillet, it was huge but so tender that the waiter portioned it up for me using 2 spoons!!! The best steak I had in any restaurant in Rio. Service was average and they have a strange system where you have to pay the service charge in cash! Place... More

One of my favorite restaurant in Ipanema. The picanha is just delicious. It comes on a hot plate and you cook it to your taste. There are fries, rice and farofa served on the side. A perfect combination. Good service

We went there for a dinner and it was a great experience. The meat is really good and cook it yourself. With a Caipirinha to accompany the meal. Service is good too. Nice area in Ipanema. The customers in the restaurant are tourist it's like us but also people from Rio (Carioca)

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
