“Visit Brazil in Auckland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Have been here twice now since Ipanema opened, once soon after it first opened, and again in July 2013 - about one year apart.
They have maintained the original enthusiasm and quality of experience. Still fantastic Brazilian food, with amazing flavours.
The staff are very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and very attentive.
The building is a little tired, but the ambience, friendliness and food and drink options make up for it.
Well worth the visit for something a little bit different.

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Great environment and friendly service.
The meal was great and the "picanha" was amazing.
You may have a great night there because you can go just for drinks, for a good dinner or just shake your body with some samba-rock music.

“Interesting, good value food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Have been here twice since Ipanema opened and really liked the food. The ambience could be improved by softer lighting in the main dining area but the menu offers interesting dishes you won't see at every other restaurant. I look forward to hearing the band play next time.
