A good choice, food was tasty, but very expensive for what you got, upstairs is unique, you sit on tiny chairs at tiny tables about 1 foot off the floor. Not comfortable - sit downstairs if you have choice. Busy place so go early. Easy...More

The food here kind of resembles rio's landscapes, where the sea meets the mountains in perfect harmony. Cod with vegetables and bacon, octopus with broccoli, small meatballs, and seafood dumplings...it all tasted just amazing, despite not being exactly the combinations you'd expect! Add a very...More

Well, I landed in Rio de Janeiro, first time there, and wasn’t totally sure where to go eat. I was hungry after a long commute but didn’t want to settle for just anything. Brazil has a number of traditional dishes, mainly focused on meat, cheese...More

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
