This was one of "those places" that breathe local history and culture. The restuarant is relaxed and friendly, everyone knows that just about everyone knows something of the story of Tom Jobin and "the girl from Ipanema". And the old adage that a little attempt...More

Some "tourist traps" are actually worth it (*see my review of 'Cristo el Redentor'), and 'Garota de Ipanema' - or the girl from Ipanema - fits that category, in my opinion. A good stop for a quick drink and/snack, you can actually see the spot...More
