For those who like Bosa Nova

Pretty nice place to visit only if you know the history of the "Ipanema Girl" song... The real jem of the place when we visited it in May 2011, was young slim girl singing boss nova.... I still regret that I neither remembered the name of that singer, nor bought her CDs which were sold there!

At first we thought it may be just another touristic place, where the name is more than the quality of food. How wrong were we! We ordered Picanha Brasileira as we saw it on other tables and it looked spectacular. It was so tasty and the portion was huge ( it's for 2 or even 3 ppl, so make sure... More

We had the picanja and would recommend it. Good meat served in an interesting fashion where you can fry the meat at the table. The place is simple but interesting; staff was friendly. Well worth a visit!

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

Service was average and they have a strange system where you have to pay the service charge in cash! Place... More
