The Esplanada Grill is a comfortable, neighborhood restaurant, but in a trendy, expensive part of Ipanema. The food is simple -- grilled meat and fish -- but very high quality. The service is very good. The prices are on the high side.

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
