Nice, simple and cozy

Old " boteco " Where the Music the girl of Ipanema was written. The cold draft beer and the big variety of food makes this place a good choice. The " Picanha " Brazilian meat is delicious! It is a good option and enough for two persons.

This was a really fun place to eat in Rio. There was lots of choice on the menu and the whole place had a great holiday feel instead of just being another big city restaurant. It was worth getting a taxi from the far end of Copacabana to explore Ipanema and eat here.

Had a very tasty meal here, very busy and we were lucky we got there a bit early as the line got very long latter on. Food was very tasty and the wine good. Service was very efficient.

The large appeal to the tourist here is due to the historical significance, though the place seemed popular with Brazilians. Inexpensive typical Brazilian bistro. Beer was cold, Caipranha was solid.

Renowned for the fact that the "The Girl from Ipanema" was written there but it is not over priced, staff were great and the food is fantastic - not what you usually get with a tourist haunt! We had dinner and really enjoyed the "churrasco" but there are so many other things to chose from. Best to get there early... More

Nice spot to stop for lunch. The history of the song adds to the atmosphere. The quality of food is delicious and great beer on tap for those hot summer days. I'd recommend lunch over dinner as it is always so crowded and packed for dinner. Wonderful location in Ipanema and great people watching. TIP: order the cheese bread appetizer.... More

This is a must to eat when you are in RIO, the only problem is there is always a long wait, but it was worth it. They don't take reservations but you can put your name on the list and ask to see how long is the wait and come back when it's time. They have the best caipirinha! Need... More
