Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. The kibes are excellent, the rice with lentils and fried onions are great. Portion for two, serves three or four. Prices are reasonable.

We ordered Lebanese style kafta and hommous but we were greatly disappointed with what we got. Nice ambience and friendly staff but if you really want properly cooked middle eastern food, this is not the place.

The lamb dishes were recommended by the waiter as the house special which turned out to be rather mediocre. The other dishes left a lot to be desired! However, the ambience is great!

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
