Excellent Food and Atmosphere

Had the steak with garlic, farofa, and beans. It was phenomenal! Great open air atmosphere and friendly service. I will definitely come back again.

Had dinner as recommended by a Taxi driver if we wanted a good meat dinner and dropped us at the Garota de Ipanema. The restaurant was occupied for 90%, couples, families with young children and some tourists, we found a nice table at the street site for the 2 of us. Ordered beer to start with and ordered the recommended... More

The service is very good, we have to wait for 15 minutes before we could get a table, but the receptionist politely offer chairs to us while we were waiting. The steak on the sizzling pan is one of the signature dish, quite impressed, but for us is too big and greasy.

I am pleased to say that the menu and food at Garota de Ipanema was very good indeed and I thought reasonably priced compared to the fast food restaurants after fast bucks. The restaurant has many visual reminders of the world-wide hit song The Girl From Ipanema. There is a free Internet service at the restaurant and we could not... More

As a Bossa Nova fan this place is something of a sacred site, so one just has to go there! I give this restaurant great credit for maintaining high standards of food quality and service when it could easily just cash-in on its fame. The food is good, I have always found the service fast and pleasant and yes it... More

Poor service, loud chatting, no music (just hanging saxophones and TV's with advertising), pretty basic tourist menu and awful caipirinhas! Thanks god for some random street-musicians going around the restaurants and performing some classical bossa-nova tunes. If you are not a couple but a party for 3 or more - prepare to wait for a table. It's usually packed. Don't... More

Of course it is one of the places you have to go when you are in Rio. The "Girl from Ipanema" makes the restaurant worth a visit. Food and waiters are les important. Most of the quest are tourists.

It feels absolutely great to be right there where the song Girl from Ipanema was written. The restaurant hasn't changed much since that time. Everybody seemed to be eating the grill but we were not very hungry so we opted for another dish. We spoke only a little Spanish and no Portuguese, thus, there was some communication problem with the... More
