My husband and I loved this place! The warm meat / bean / cheese dip to start was great, the chicken tacos were excellent and the steak burrito was definitely the standout. Bonus for English menus and a super sweet server with great English. I also tried horchata for the first time - amazing! Definitely worth a stop during your Ipanema stay.

We would have not stopped at this place if it had not been recommended to us by a colleague, but we're glad we did. The menu is heavy on quesadillas and burritos, and we had both; fortunately, everything was very tasty. The locale isn't much, and the surrounding area isn't very scenic, but the food and the service were quite good.

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing burritos at this place. We stopped here for dinner one night and had a great meal. The burritos are not cheap, but they were so good. In fact my wife went back the next day and had another for lunch. Service was excellent as well. We sat inside but there was some outdoor seating. Unfortunately you can smoke outside.

We randomly stumbled upon this place whilst strolling through iPanema. A great selection of dishes so was tough picking just 1! Very helpful service also made this a great experience. What we picked was very tasty and not over the top in terms of being too heavy which burritos usually are. Positioned in a good little spot to watch the people on the street. Do yourself a favour!

It has great choices of mexican food. Altough it is a little small, the food compensates for it. Also has a very fair price for Mexican food in Rio. If they good only be a little bigger they would be awesome!! And they speak both english and portuguese!
