We were told this place was a MUST for tourists in Rio so we went with high expectations of a great night. The food was good and the place was ok but I expected more in terms of the night

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
