The food was great and such fun kitschy decor. The service was great and everyone was incredibly friendly. We also got a great bar recommendation for after from the host. Would definitely go again!

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

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
