living 40 years just 5 blocks away we decided one night to stop and have that highly publicized Picanha na Brasa for two. As we are not big eaters specially eating meat in the evening we asked for half a portion or a Picanha for...More

If you are a meat eater, you will want to try the picanha here. Brought to your table raw, sliced thin, with a hot plate, which you then cook it yourself to whatever level you wish. Nothing fancy here, very convenient after a day at...More

The place is very cosy, with different decorational elements from the famous song. My boyfriend chose a meat dish which was good, while I ordered Bacalhao, which was just OK and it could need some more seasoning. I think this place is better for some...More

The food is nice and pricy. The restaurant is simple and a bit tight. The meat " picanha na chapa" is very good! I would recommend at lunchtime after going to the beach. The location is very good and you can walk around Ipanema area.

Of course we went there for the "girl from Ipanema" and really hoped to hear it at least as background melody or some other bossa nova music playing live, but no. Maybe its because low season. Food and caipirinha was very good.

Excellent food, attentive staff and real Brazilian feel. the only reason i gave it 4 stars and not five is that the toilets are not very clean. we had a huge steak platter which we cooked on flames at the table, it was just beautiful...More

enjoyed a light lunch. food was good. service was fair. a roving band stopped playing outside moments after we sat, though we did see them there again later while passing by.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There

I do not recall seeing any vegan options and certainly they are very meat focussed - probably not ideal for Vegans to be honest
