This restaurant is situated on the corner of a square. You can sit outside and experience the vibrant live in Ipanema. The food is of good quality and the waiter is very friendly and service minded. It was good to be back here!

Terzetto Café is my ideal spot for a Sunday breakfast with friends and family. Its typical Ipanema's cosmopolitan atmosphere makes it the right place to go for a long and lazy breakfast on your way to the beach. The Café is a mix of bakery, delicatessen and restaurant. Everything is nice, carefully prepared and service deserves compliments. Maitre Roberto and... More

This place was never very crowded, but had wonderful service. We also enjoyed the food--good mix of typical Brazilian, as well as pasta/pizza dishes. The best part was the desserts. You can see them all in the case so you know what you're ordering (this was incredibly helpful since I spoke no Portuguese and could barely read the menu/communicate with... More

We ate on the elevated platform patio at Terzetto Cafe and it made for excellent people watching. They have an English menu so that was an added bonus. Do look inside at the deli to see today's specials because I had a mushroom salad that was excellent! The service was good as well, and being in Brazil, having cute wait... More

We had a really nice dinner lately in this coffee bar / restaurant. Food is nice and service was excellent. Place could have a bit more designing, but that didn't spoil the fun :)

I was walking by as I left the Metro, and saw that Terzetto offers an "executive lunch" - a short selection of items. I decided to try it and made a selection that could not go wrong - a simple spaggetti with tomato sauce and slices of meat. Or could it? The pasta was al dente but this is the... More

We had trouble find places in Ipanema open before 1200 or that had breakfast available. Most just had lunch. But Terzetto had everything we wanted and a full menu. It looks like a pastry and coffee shop with desserts on display but they have a whole menu. The staff was wonderful as we had a baby who made a mess... More
