Best coxinhas I've had. R$20 caipirinhas, R$6 chopp. R$80 - 100 picanha (sirloin) plates that can feed 2 or 3 people easy. Hard to do better than this in Ipanema/Leblon area.

One night they let us play cards (no money) until the very second the last mouthful was swallowed then we were presented with the cheque (without asking) and basically shown the pavement.

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,

with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
