“Good ipanema option”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Well located, this spin off from the well know Astor in São Paulo is always busy!! The food is reliable and good value and people watching is great. A good way to spend your time after the beach or in the evening.

“Excellent bar and restaurant -beautiful location”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This a place to go, right in front of Ipanema beach, very good caipirinhas and small bites. It is a full place, it opens at noon and 30 minutes after, there will be a line. Is is not cheap but it is a place to go everytime I go to Rio.

“Trendy”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

As a foreigner living in Rio this bar was a great find. Go early at the weekend if you don't want to queue . The atmosphere is fantastic locals and visitors alike everyone is friendly staff are friendly and very efficient. Great place to sit outside early evening for a sundowner and people watch. On a Sunday lunchtime or mid afternoon as the road along the beach is closed just to people watch and relax.

“Locals bar...”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Went here on a Friday night. No queue, sat down straight away.

Great vibe about this bar, mostly locals. Cocktails were fantastic and food whilst not mind blowing was certainly enjoyable.

Fully recommend
