The Bar Lagoa remains one of the best places in Rio de Janeiro to stay for small talk with a good beer. A great choice is the potato salad with sausage. But the milanese filet, the muzzarella pizza and the filet mignon are great also....More

Definitely not offering traditional Brazilian food but Bar Lagoa proposes a delicious Wienerschnitzel for those who like or miss this type of cuisine. Service is old-fashioned but reliable. Nice location with outdoor seating.

The view from the restaurant is beautiful. Our waiter was extremely friendly, attentive, and polite. However the starters are not particularly interesting. The food in general is traditional Brazilian German and perfectly adequate. I ordered the steak tartare and so did my stepfather. It was...More

The price was adequate for the location . At the same time, the price was high for an unsophisticated eating place. Food was good.

Went here after being recommend by the 'rough guides' but we're dissapointed. You cannot see the lake due to the road and foliage, which we could live with but the staff seemed only interested in the families there to spend lots of cash basically. We...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
