Great place. Good food, good service and atmosphere! Do expect some queue if you go there at night, especially on the weekends.

I never visit Rio without having at least one meal at Zaza; the menu changes very often and I never have to eat the same dish. Apart from the delicious menu of fresh food with many healthy options, the atmosphere is by far the best...More

I'm back again to this amazing restaurant! Food and service were pristine! I highly recommend this restaurant for Brazilians and foreigners. They have English menu and the food is very creative, using Brazilian ingredients and contemporary trends.

Delicious cross-over food and very good drinks. Inside and outside seating. We have eaten several fish meals including the ceviche but there is much more to try. The only inconvenience was that the tables are very close, you could almost not go through the space...More

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
