My friends and i came here for lunch on our last day in Rio and it was the perfect way to cap off our trip. The picanha was superb!!! Just go and get it - no words can describe how good it is. You gotta taste it for yourself. ;)

The 'Girl from Ipanema' (Garota da Ipanema) is one of my favourite Bossa Nova tunes and so where better to have dinner when staying in Ipanema than at the very bar / cafe where composer Antonio Carlos Jobim and his poet friend Vinicius de Moraes got their inspiration to write this famous tune in the 1960's... And I challenge you... More

I first went to the Garota de Ipanema restaurant in the 1970's. It's a fun place to have a meal and enjoy being in the same place where the legendary song was written years before. Nice location a block from Ipanema Beach. It is now a shrine to the song and to Jobim and de Moraes. Food is what one... More

We were here in Rio for 3 nights and came here thrice. The great atmosphere with many locals was the start. The food was good and service engaging. So, three times, why break a formula we like? Nice guys doing the waiting. The only negative is it can get noisy with excited clientele and traffic. Itinerant musicians outside the open... More

Classic lunchtime destination for a spot of people watching ! Great service and food , see the lyric sheet for the classic song written here. In the evenings strolling groups of musicians pass on the streets outside .

We are here on our recent trip and were very impressed. It's busy and chaotic but that's for a reason - the food is superb and very reasonable as was the wine. We opted for the steak that you cook at the table and it could have fed 4!!!

The place is very busy and bustling. Tables are quite close and quite noisy. But this is the ambiance that makes this restaurant! The waitstaff are attentive but still casual. Menu has English translation which makes ordering easy. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. It doesn't face the beach so no views to speak off. But I would come... More

My wife and kids stopped in here for a break from the sun. The fried fish appetizer was great. My daughter ordered the pasta and it was huge! The flavour was very good, so I recommend you share this as a lunch item between at least two people. The pizza was equally good, so be careful - don't order too... More

This restaurant is a typical local hangout as well as a tourist attraction in Ipanema as this is where the classic song "The Girl from Ipanema" was written. In fact, this is one of the most historic restaurants in Rio de Janeiro, where Ipanema is one of its famous upscale beaches. The restaurant is located one block from the beach,... More
