You may see lines or slightly erratic service but it's part of the local experience... Food is good and reasonably priced (unliked many other meat places). Loved it! We are in Rio after all, service is rarely excellent anyway.And after dinner the street get packed so enjoy a drink with cariocas

Hungry after visiting Jardim Botanico. We walked down the street and stumbled in to this place. Once seated, the waiter came by with grilled sausages like in a churrascaria. They were delicious. We ordered palmito salad, fried provolone cheese, rice, beans, French fries, steak, beers, caphirina's, suco do laranja. The food was excellent. Best and most authentic we have had in Rio so far this week. Total cost = R250. Not inexpensive but not out of line with what food costs in Rio these days.

Highly recommended.

A good place for meat lovers. They have fantastic picanha. That's what everyone orders, piranha, rice, farofa and french fries. Nice atmosphere but very busy place. A local hang out, where no-one speaks english.

I've spent more than 2 hours waiting for a poor service and a regular food. You have better options nearby and around Ipanema. If you want to see beautiful people while waiting, this is a good restaurant, but if you want to eat, this is not the best option.
