We've been to all the best restaurants in Rio and this one in terms of simple comfort food... a great grilled picanha, rise, farofa, fries and beer is perfect and not expensive! I definitely recommend!

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
