Very nice lunch location in central Ipanema, sit on the terrace and enjoy the leafy surroundings. This has vibes of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Food is great, with a decent menu and some very nice salad options - chicken and quinoa was really enjoyable. Staff are very welcoming. All in all a very good restaurant that deserves the strong reviews... More

*The premises are great, with a striking mix of natural materials and a very chilled ambience. So that's the building covered, now for the food. We had the calamari for starters which had a very dry coating and was somewhat chewy .... Definitely had much tastier on our travels and were surprised they weren't much better For mains we both...

Tuna tartar was excellent followed by one of the best wagyu kobu burgers I've had! Proper chunky chips (ask for fries if you prefer). Cocktails also delivered, although the cosmopolitan was a bit sweet! Highly recommend the Three lemon cashasha cocktail... would definitely come again!

The only reason we went - never had eaten it. Ordered, one rare, one well done. Great difference in size on the plate. Well done had burned off a lot of fat. Without a bun, salt or ketchup. Ordered them up and had a satisfaying experience. Certainly expensive-R$70 for aburger.

Choosing to sit centrally in the restaurant helps as waiters trying to get around you near the edge can be a problem! Neverthe less staff were friendly enough, if not quite as friendly as had been suggested by previous visitors. Chicken croquettes to start were a little tasteless. My main course the Salmon Tagliatelle was rich but very tasty. My... More

We had a wonderful lunch for six, chicken burger, hamburger, dumplings, tuna tartar and some cocktails. The food, the music (Maria Gadu) and the service made it a memorable visit.
