"Girl from Ipanema" was penned at a table here in the restaurants former incarnation, back in the day...so Brazilian and International tourists flock here...but locals love it too. Good for its picanha(meat) and all the extras...which means piles of fries and farofa etc. Good value, noisy, very Carioca. "Very Good" is stretching it maybe, but its fun and reliably so.... More

What a great, busy spot for a wonderful dinner! In the heart of ipanema and a short walk to our Airbnb. The steak platters that come "still cooking" for two people to your table are wonderful but stay your distance because you will splash oil on your clothes. The service is really fast and friendly. Expect it to be packed... More

went with a friend. it's very casual and open to the outside. Photos and posters of jobim everywhere. I loved it, except for the street musicians who played right outside the half wall looking for donations. food was very good, prices were decent.

Arrived early 8.45pm and table available immediately for three people. Friendly waiter suggested the picanha (steak) and a side salad was enough for three. Started with caipirinhas and within 15 minutes the picanha arrived pink and salty, sizzling and delicious. Accompanied by salsa, chips and a dish that looked like cous cous and a tin of Portuguese extra virgin olive... More

This is a very nice and typical place to experience "picanha" (it's all we ever order there!). It's well located, has good service and the food is delicious! It's quite popular so try to get there early or have someone go first and take a table before it fills up!

We were only a block away so why not? Another diner claimed we were at the table where the song was written, who knows? We shared the palm heart salad and chicken stroganoff with a bottle of wine and the price was under $50 US; not bad for Rio. The waiters were polite, even funny, posing with the score for... More

This place is of course popular due to the novelty... (the famous song).. There are lines to get in so get your name in early. When we were seated, I didn't realise it but it was later pointed out to me by another diner that we were sitting at the exact table where the song was composed. Service is very... More

This restaurant is not a must visit because of its food, although the piquenha (I know I'm spelling that wrong too!!) is good. It's a must visit for the ambiance and the history. And just think how cool it is you can tell your friends you ate at the restaurant where the world famous song was written!!! Find that one... More
