Gula Gula’s speciality are its salads. While some salad combinations may appear weird, they mostly work. Gula Gula has many locations and unfortunately, the owners were not able to ensure consistency and quality.

My husband and I had lunch twice there. And both times the service was super slow. The overall food was good. What was really good was the rocombole and the lemon pie - wow!!

I always go to this restaurant with my wife and daughters. Its ok. It's not wonderful or bad. But it's a little bit beyond average. Prices for Rio are average. Nice place to go without bad surprises. I recommend.

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
