I went here on my own because it was close to the hotel. Do not go, It was double the price from the other pay by weight places I went to and for half the food. Tourist rip off I think. I told the 12 people I was travelling with to avoid this place.

Went there for very late lunch - within an hour of them closing. While there was a variety of food still available at the buffet the quality wasn't brilliant, and most importantly it was almost cold. Staff were keen to clear up, and I didn't feel welcome. Left before I tried dessert

As a vegetarian I felt like I had plenty of options here. The fare is standard buffet food, but it's a decent selection of fruits, salad makings, sides, and dessert. It was a tasty pay per kilo dinner, although the servers seemed less than thrilled with my limited Portuguese. I feel like in Ipanema they must have tourists come in... More

Great place to drop in if you are hungry for lunch or a quick dinner. Good buffet with good variety of Brazilian food. Fruits, salads, meats, fish, vegetables, stews etc. Here you pay a kilo-price about 18USD/kilo.

The buffet was ok, but i think a little expensive considering what you get! The host was friendly and helpful, always asking if everything was ok!

If you looking to get a very good feeling on Brazilian food this is a good place. The food is very traditional. When you get in they give you a yellow paper, you take a plate and put on the plate anything you want from the buffet. At the end of the buffet they put the plate on a weight... More
