The place is fancy, but we did after Olympic game, sport clothes. Take a table upstairs with square view. They don't have a wine menu, you should go to the wine room and take yours. #awesome

Charming winery with spectacular assortment of wines, quiet and charming ambient and comforting food! We had, among other dishes, the "feijoada" and the fish "moqueca"! It was fantastic!

Wine selection... There's no menu, you just pick a bottle from their store which is awesome! Appetizers...good. Shiitake Mushrooms and carpaccio fair. I ordered zucchini spaghetti...good. My bf ordered the rack of lamb. A bit chewy and hard to cut but still a bit tasty....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
