It's a great option if you're looking for a light and healthy meal, especially compared to the often quite heavy brazilian food. Canteen-style, i.e. you have to take a tray and order at the counter. So don't ve surprised. They're only open until 9pm most days so not suited for a late dinner.

This is a mid-scale version of what would be called a "cafeteria" in the US: you push a tray along a counter, ask servers for what you want, and find an available table. It is a chain, with a few locations spread around the city. The specialty seems to be salads, but there are hot dishes, soups and sandwiches as... More

Ate here for lunch with the whole family (5 kids & wife) in July 2015 while staying in Ipanema for one week. Nice break from the beach and a quick healthy food option when you don't want to eat al fresco on a folding chair at the numberless counter order burger/chicken sandwich & fresh juice places in the Ipanema area....

I love the variety of food in this restaurant, and the wonderful vegan and vegetarian options. Tasty, delicious, organic and healthy. My favorite choice to hang out with friends and family for a healthy bite.

Lots of options to suit every taste. The quality of the food was good. Not the type of place to linger over a meal but tasty food.

This two-story restaurant has a large selection of salads and meat options. The food tasted very good and also tasted fresh. There were lots of sweets that looked less tempting than the main dishes. The price is based on weight and was very reasonable.

In a town where meat is king and restaurant prices are high, this is a great spot for vegetarians looking for a large meal full of fresh options. It was delicious and quick. This is not an atmosphere place as it feels like a cafeteria, but if you're looking for something utilitarian in Ipanema this is your place.
