Good grilled fish main, and calamares main. Peach dessert was fine too. Tables (inside) are very close together, but we are not fluent in Portuguese- so were not too distracted. Service not too sharp, but maitre d was quite affable. 400+ for 2.

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.

I've been there with my siblings and we fell in love with the place. First of all the staff is lovely and the ambience very cool. We were seated on the first floor (very romantic with seatings on the floor and cosy ambience). I don't...More

After my discovery of this really colorful restaurant serving exquisite food in Ipanema last year, I returned again tonight, and the quality was still outstanding. Nice service, and even better food and cocktails made it worth the trip from the other side of Copacabana where...More
