A long ago the restaurant used to be excellent. Today the service sucks, with rude and unapologetic waiters. The food leaves much to be desired and takes a long time to get ready. Terrible, would not recommend to anyone.

Going to Banana Jack is guaranteed fun. Ice cold beer with lots of choices for eating. Hamburgers will never disappoint you. And the background track is Rock'n'Roll.

A similar set up to TGI Fridays, lots of burger, ribs and fries. All cooked well and not too expensive. Good selection of beer and were happy to show a particular football match on one of their large screens when asked.

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
