“Unpleasant restaurant experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We did not wait to see the show as the food was really terrible and the restaurant dingy. We ordered a grilled sole with shrimps and mushroom sauce ... and got a fried and oily fish in a butter sauce with mushrooms and shrimps of the can ... and all this for quite a huge amount!

“Music is good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Music is good, but the atmosphere is not very pleasant... the smell on the 2nd floor is not nice, the pastel and french fries are not tasty and does not seem much fresh... the prices are high.
35 R$ plus to the bill if you are at music show

“Great music, not so great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Loved the music!!! They had wonderful program but the place was a little smelly. Drinks were overpriced and did not taste well. But if you dont order anything and move past the smell definitely worth visiting for the music

“Great music in an intimate setting, but avoid the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

This is a fantastic place to go for classic Bossa Nova in an intimate setting. Old fashioned decor, a little shabby but comfortable for listening and having a drink. Avoid the food, it is really bad. Go to dinner first if you can! Reasonable cover charge.

“Old fashioned but still a temple of Bossa Nova.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

This place is a little dated, but as it makes part of Brazilian music history, may be interesting iif you're lucky to get tickets to watch some good artist. The restaurant in the ground floor is basic and I stay there just for appetizers and beer. If you would like to diner, you may prefer something better among many other options by Ipanema.
