Crowded, loud. Very small place. So called Portuguese specialties. Two cappuccinos two pastels de natal. Order repeated 3 times. Server could not hear. Wait for about ten minutes. It comes. We ask for bill. 45.00 reais. Not worth it.

We ate here twice, once for lunch, once for dinner. I ordered the same items- the filet on onions with punched potato. The lunch serving was 5 star, but the evening serving lacked a bit of the punch. Service and atmosphere very good.

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
