Real cool place. Not sure if it’s a regular Tuesday thing, but it was a whole street party going on. Awesome time. Place next to it has a downstairs bar that was playing some hip hop and dance mixes.

Interesting place. Very crowded and mostly brasilians. Difficult to get a table. Nice atmosphere and nice people. Very good service. Drinks at reasonable prices. Ordered some dishes to help drinking some wine.They were good. Recommended.

I’ve been going to Canastra since it opened a few years ago. It started out as a single door serving great food (tapas with products all made in brazil) and great wine (brazilian wines - recomend whites and rose) with a fair price (only place...More

Chic and sexy vibe without any attitude! While the waitstaff could all be supermodels, they were all very warm and charming. The cool ambient music is quickly drowned out by fun dinner chatter. House smoked Salmon, Pate, and octopus tapas pair perfect with their great...More

Seemed to serve five drink options: wines, red, white, or rosé, Heineken, or caipirinha. 20 different small plates served with bread. Packed on a Friday night with most people just drinking on the sidewalk.

We had a great evening at Canastra, after a sunny day on the beach. This is one of the few places in Ipanema where you drink a glass of wine for a reasonable price. Don't come to late because it gets crowed and you won't...More

Canastra began as a bar of one door only, in part of a former construction shop. The success was immediate. So much so that the shop closed and the bar expanded. Due to lack of space, goers gather in the street. On the busiest day,...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
