Food is great quality and fresh made to order! The restaurant is Iconic and typically has a wait but less than 45 min usually. Also has American choices for the not so adventurous. Definitely a must when in Ipanema. Service is a bit off because of the big volume I suppose.

Too much commotion and too crowded and too expensive to be enjoyable. Everyone packed like sardines and tables too close together. Food very average and over priced and service too hurried and not attentive. It is a famous landmark so it needs to be visited but may be only for a drink in the afternoon when it is less crowded.

Very very good meat/ food in general. Nice atmosphere and fit actobats in the street outside the resturant. One small drawback was the high volume of "noise" in the resturant.

This is a great location and the food and atmosphere is great! It's only one block from the beach, very close to Posto Nove (post 9). There can be a line sometimes but the wait is worth it. Don't plan on eating too much before you go because you can certainly fill up on the picanha. Enjoy the whole thing... More

It's a good restaurant, very traditional. The food is good and the price fare. It's for a regular dinner, nothing special.

The restaurant is good, but their shop next door is a scam. In my case while they were processing my credit card transaction, one girl asked me to enter my email address on a printed form while other casually booked another larger transaction on the card. Do not trust them with your credit card!

I have been here many times on my frequent trips to Rio. Every entree is more than enough food for two people. The steak is very good and the service is fast. As soon as your server sees you need something they are right there but not overbearing. The price is a very good value for the amount of food... More

Went there for dinner. Simple location but with a historic flair. Many were having the grilled pichania and it really looked good. But as I had a craving for fish I had a really good fish dish with veggies and potatoes. I was really happy with my meal and the portion was really generous. Staff was friendly and gave us... More
