We arrived here for a friends birthday dinner and from the moment we got there, the staff was so nice. We do not speak Portuguese but had a friend from there that did. The waitress was so nice and she did try to speak English....More

I dined at Zaza Bistro as it was within walking distance of my hotel. The decor and atmosphere is quirky and cozy, which I liked. I had the seafood feijoada, which was rather average (and more expensive) compared to some of the other feijoada dishes...More

We were a group of 5 people so we ordered and shared eveything. There was nothing that we did not like. A little higher priced but the food was excellent. I highly recommend this place. A small menu but lots of variety.

I understand that Ipanema area is expensive overall- but I ordered a curry, one drink, and still water and it was like 40 usd. I like the atmosphere and all, but kinda too expensive.More
