Lagoa's "chopp" (draft beer) is well known for its casual (and sometimes noisy) atmosphere. Chopp is traditionally good. Waiters are traditionally in a bad temper, so expect a casual-below-average-service, but the quality of food & beverages might compensate for that. Average price.

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
