Good value and surprisingly good food especially the fish and shrimp stew. We had professional and pleasant service. The restaurant has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere and great memorabilia. For such a touristy spot it was a pleasant surprise.

We went for lunch and spent the afternoon there. The hot plate steak was one of our best meals in Rio. Our group of 24 were treated with great enthusiasm, and never waited for a cold beer. The queue outside was always long which says a lot about the reputation. It's a simple set up and the food is world... More

My 19 year old son and I were in Rio for 11 days during World Cup. We were looking for a place to sit and have dinner after the match at Maracana on a Monday night. We arrived around 10:00 PM and it was still very crowded. But they got us a table within about 10 minutes. We stumbled into... More

Beer, Caipirinha and Brazilian stake, all tastes very good. The song was inspired and composed in this place. Many "Garota de Ipanema" now and before enjoy dinner at friendly atmosphere.

If you are the kind of person who walks around Rio humming the song "the Girl from Ipanema" then this place is for you! Menu is very meaty - food is good quality - atmosphere is fun and easy going. It is probably over priced but is always full compared to restaurant opposite that has a similar menu that is... More

We stopped here for lunch on our first day in Ipenema. As with most of our experiences in Brazil there wasn't any English spoken. The restaurant was open air and most of the tables afford a view of people walking to and from the beach along with the occasional street performer. Our food was good but it got busy and... More

As mentioned in other reviews, there are usually long queues for this restaurant (whether it's because of its historical background as the setting to which Garota de Ipanema - or "The Girl from Ipanema" - was written, or simply due to its proximity to the aforementioned beach). That's probably the biggest drawback. Otherwise, service, the food itself and value are... More

My husband and I walked from Copacabana to Ipanema one day and stumbled upon this restaurant. We went in for lunch and it was the best meal we had on our trip. We both got a local fish dish and shared it and were so happy because the food was incredible. The service was ok, most people don't speak English... More

This place seems to be very busy and the staff seem to not handle the amount of customers while keeping service up to par. It took over 15 minutes to get menus at our table. After this we had to request a waiter to get drinks who was rude and kept trying to point to things on the menu we... More
