Great authentic Brazilian food. I expected the place to be more "high-end" due to the high price and the fact that they even have a song for it. The restaurant looks like the usual local restaurants you have, but the service and food are exceptional.

The service is wonderful. A traditional must eat bar and the origin of Jobim's masterpiece. The plates are quite large, so order with caution. Really good meat that you cook at the table, great pizzas and sandwiches.

The place is very cosy, with different decorational elements from the famous song. My boyfriend chose a meat dish which was good, while I ordered Bacalhao, which was just OK and it could need some more seasoning. I think this place is better for some...More

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

I do not recall seeing any vegan options and certainly they are very meat focussed - probably not ideal for Vegans to be honest
