The food here was pretty average and the waiting time was long, though the history (this is allegedly where "Girl from Ipanema" was written) and caipirinhas make it worthwhile. It's also right in the heart of Ipanema, where you are likely to be anyway.

Fine if you want to say you've been to the spot where the song was written.
Otherwise, poor service, tasteless food and tourist ambiance.

Go to Garota de Ipanema for a taste of the traditional bad service you get from carioca old school waiters. There is nothing special for eating/drinking here. The place survives from being the spot where Vinicius and Tom Jobim wrote their popular song, but at that time it was named Veloso and was under a different management.

This place is so busy, but worth it. One of the most famous restaurants in the city, the iconic Garota de Ipanema is 100 feet away from the apartment. This is why it's the best, because if it's full, you don't have to stand there, you can just go back to the apartment and come back whenever to get your table. It not a churrascaria, it's more like a steakhouse where they bring you the best cuts of meat to your table on a hot grill and you cut, pick and share with your friends and family. You pick your sides, like the original rice and beans and fresh cut french fries. Nothing you get at a restaurant in Brazil will be previously cooked and/or frozen, it's all fresh and cooked to order, unless you're at a chain like McDonald's. I recommend this place for all tourists wanting the Brazilian experience. Don't leave Rio without eating there.

Across the street there's another restaurant that has Bossa Nova shows at night on the second floor. Again, excellent entertainment feet away from the apartment. It's limited seating and only locals know about it. Must visit.

An historical restaurant in the lively area of Ipanema where the song Girl From Ipanema was written as the famous girl would pass by going to the beach inspiring the composers. Here you can eat a delicious picanha and spend a nice time with your friends or colleagues. The place is Rio's face. The food is excellent and the price is fair. I suggest picanha, fries, farofa, black bean and vinagrete pared with a cold chopp. Good option for after beach.

Great crowded place to grab food and drinks in the middle of Ipanema. A few blocks in from the beach, on a main street in the heart of Ipanema residential area, you will find this busy place where many people were just dying to get in for its atmosphere. Food is decent, drinks are good but the atmosphere was the best.

Famous restaurant, but food and service are mediocre - we do not recommend. There are many better and more interesting restaurants in Rio.

Know the song "Girl From Ipanema"...of course you do...this is where it was written. Musical instruments adorn the walls. I went with a hearty Portuguese Verde soup (kale and sausage) and of course a Chopp or so to wash it down.

Noisy at weekends when families pack the place, so go in the week for a chilled beer accompanied by grilled meats or pizza. The Girl from Ipanema was written here.

Really good brazilian food. Its locate in Ipanema, close to the beach.
Vinicius de Moraes and Tom Jobim frequented a lot this place, thats why became so famous, it is where they composed a lot of songs.
I high recommend "picanha", is one of the best places i had this meat.

Been here two times and I love the place. Value for money (!). Make sure you have the entrecôte for two people. It's just great. Will come back for sure.

It's just crazy if you don't go here to grab a beer (estupidamente gelada) and have a bite. It's girl from Ipanema everywhere.

A grande pedida é a picanha ou a meia picanha da brasa. Peça bastante manteiga pra deixar o ambiente bem mais enfumaçado e, claro, a carne bem mais gostosa. Vale muito e pena experimentar. Arroz maluco, farofa de ovos e banana frita de acompanhamento é a melhor pedida.
