This bar has history all over its walls. Drinks were delicious. Service was outstanding. I felt I was parting every time I went during my stay.

Having eaten there several times last year, we were disappointed this year. The service was casual and rather dismissive. Perhaps it has become too popular for them to care. The picana was particularly disappointing. We visited twice and both times the meat was tough.

Not the absolute best restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, but definitely worth a visit. Great local experience, and the food is excellent. It is very busy, so I would recommend making reservations. The service is very friendly. If you want the complete Rio experience, a visit to this restaurant is a must!

We wanted to go to the song famous restaurant so shared a cab and then had drinks here. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get in but all part of the fun. There were pictures of the girl/owner from her youth but the owner was not there. Great atmosphere.

There is only one reason to come here and it's not for the food. If you live and work in Rio I guess you might regard this as your local , but for someone passing through its all about the history and saying you have been there. The food is an about average , a lot being fried , staff... More

Not saying this is the best restaurant in Rio, but the food was good, the service was friendly and the atmosphere was great. They are not relying on the fact that the song was written here to draw in the crowds, but that does give it an edge. This place gets very busy in the evening and a reservation is... More

Average attention, prices a little bit expensive for the food, taste really good, a lot of local dishes, our favorite was a meat sandwich, the kids loved the crab in a shell, we had a fish also and had really good taste, the orange juice was natural and sweet. No kids menu. The restaurant is in a corner and is... More

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
