It's a very known place, I think it is overrated. The watermelon juice was very watery. The main course my husband and I ordered was ok - Ipanema and Copacabana burger. Nothing special about the place and the menu.

We had the set lunch here - fish for me and steak for my husband with a choice of sides and salads. Lunch was served promptly and was well cooked. It was all very tasty. Staff helpful and informal setting made for a relaxed lunch.

Well recommended by our hostel so me and my friend decided to give it a try. Besides, it's just few steps away from where we're staying! It turned out to be our go to place! Went their 2 times in a week. The place was quiet, cosy yet classy. Ambiance was great. We sat, chit chat and at the same... More

No problem to leave the beach and get a seat at Balada Mix on your bikinis and flip flops. Many choices of burgers, quinoa, chia, tuna salads, Brazilian food, omelette, pancakes and nice mixes of natural juices. Prices of plates range from 30-50 reais. Ok price for Leblon/Ipanema. Only a block from the Ipanema beach :)

It's less than it appears from outside. The service is just average like the food as well. Not so sure if I'd recommend it... The music is very good.

Stopped here for breakfast and was very impressed. The outside tables are small and there is a bistro style feel with paper place mats etc. We had the set breakfast for two which was 45$R so about £15. This consisted of two halved and toasted French baguettes, cheese, ham, scrambled eggs, fresh pressed orange juice and coffee . In fact... More

I love this place. They had a special soup buffet when I was there and it had the most unique and delicious onion and hearts of palm soup, very gourmet. Casual and great atmosphere.

Best sandwich ever. My perfect meal is Erico with cacao/grape juice. They also have a menu where you can order meals like fish, chicken or açaí.

Balada Mix is a steps away from Ipanema Beach and it was a lovely place to eat on a warm May evening. The menu is large with a lot of healthy options. Service is fast and friendly and it's fun to watch the parade of people going by after they leave the beach.
