Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.

Every single bite, from salad to sides to scrumptious multitudes of meats, and then topping it all off with a tasty desert of your choice. All of the meat has no comparison to anything you have ever eaten. Only thing to remember, Don't fill up on all the other wonderful food before you try each savory meat.

In a group of about 15 guys for lunch. Servers very attentive but food was disappointing. First item chosen was bottom steak and I chewed and chewed and chewed. I wound up heading to the rest room to get a paper towel to wrap my chewed portion and the balance of the steak. I have no trouble eating corn on... More

My daughter took me and my husband and the bar (salad ) has the most interesting array of items. All different types of meat are brought to the table and cut fresh off the skewer .....this will be an experience you will never forget.

We meet a few friends from Gainesville here for dinner. The place was easy enough to find just a small drive from I-75. Parking was a little more difficult, we had to park further back from the building than I would have like, but it wasn't a horrible walk. We were seated quickly, and our server was prompt. Our location... More

This restaurant is a dream come true! Who knew such a place existed in this small city! It's certainly a superb steakhouse but a vegetarian would find over 50 choices just at the salad bar! Service was impeccable! We didn't have reservations but were seated within 10 mins of arriving! While we were dining, just about every table became full.... More

Love, love, love this place. The foods are simply prepared with rock salt and cooked to perfection. If you like wel done, ask you will get it. Like rare, they will get you rare, and anything in between. Just because the meat is well done when the gaucho comes by, they do have others in kitchen to suit your tastes,... More

We have dined here before with better results, but Saturday night was horrible. The wait was 45 minutes. Service at the bar was slow. The worst part was the food. The cuts if meat were sub par, meaning tough and grisly. Every serving caked in salt. We could barely taste the meat it was so salty. We paid the $100... More

For meat and all you can eat lovers this is the place in Ocala. Very good and experienced service, nicely decorated and clean. Fabulous salad bar and good wine selection. Solid quality beef in various forms plus some chicken, sausage, pineapple etc etc. Nice for a special occasion or just to get a beef fix. Recommended!
