A floor shared by 4 or 5 different restaurants, all from the same company (if I am notmistaken), cool contemporary design, choice of cusines as well as choice of settings, design and atmosphere. You can also choose any dish from pretty much all of the restaurants irrespactfull of where you are sitting. Food is very good, to the level, that we went there twice. Great service, english menue, lovely atmosphere, fair size portions. The only location could have been more vibrant.there is a bit seedy area near by and that end of the lake is the least attractive and most deserted in the evening. The wine is a bit more expensive then in the similar level of the restaurants. They dont accept reservations on weekends, but you can pretty much always get the table.

With a wonderful view of Rio's beautiful lake and Christ the Reedemer in the distance your expectations will be high and you will not be disappointed. Lagoa (The Lake) is very close to Ipanema but not too many tourists which is a nice experience.
Within the complex there are 4 restaurants with a variety of foods from high end pizza to Japanese. Sitting outside, you can order from any of the menus which gives great flexibility when you fancy something different.
The service was friendly and everyone was helpful given our almost total lack of Portuguese.
Recommended as a change from the beach bars and tourist spots on the waterfront.

I just finished my meeting with colleagues in Brazil. Meeting in the office is totally boring. That’s why meeting in a restaurant or café can be quite enjoyable and also relaxing. So, it was me and Mr. Johnson who decided to have an outdoor meeting. It was actually from my idea who suggested it to him. This place has 2nd floor deck that you can sit comfortably for dinner. The food offered started from the Italian to Japanese and all of them are delicious! We ordered the watermelon caipirinha. It was really tasty but it is actually pricey.

The lagoon is a complex with many restaurants inside, you can eat pizza, meat, japanese food or other foods. It was very difficult to find a table but you can have some drinks at the bar while you wait for your table.

This is a very unusual place as it congregates four restaurants under the same roof (Pax Delicia, Giuseppe, Quadrifoglio, and San Remo) the sitting area is common and you can simultaneously orders from any of them! The view (particularly in the outdoor seating) is phenomenal. Service (very unusual for Rio de Janeiro) is attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable. Prices a bit on the steep side but no one complains because the food and the service are so good! This is a converted Rowing Stadium that now has a movie-theater complex plus several restaurants. Access is not easy as the place awkward to walk to (especially at night), and when coming out getting a cab can be tricky. But if you have your own wheels enclosed parking is plentiful (there's a section reserved for motorcycles/scooters, also very unusual for Rio) and it's a great place to go to lunch, cocktails, or dinner.
