Skip Garota de Ipanema down the street and head straight to Zaza. The food and drinks are delicious, small setting, quirky and beautiful spot. Make reservations online, or stop by at 7 pm when they open to grab a table.

Our first night in Rio and we met family at ZaZa. The food was great, we shared the appetizer sampler and the beet tortellini. Awesome atmosphere and very helpful staff. Knowing very little Porteguese we had no problems.

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
