Gula Gula offers a nice range of options to every taste - from quiches and salads to pasta, meat and seafood. We were there in a group of 5 'spoiled good-eaters' from São Paulo, the gourmet capital of Brazil, and we were very well-impressed. All...More

Had a wonderful dinner here. Perfectly done salmon and chicken. Minimalist food that is just done cleanly, cooked and presented. High moderate for price. Intimate dining. Highly recommended.

Every time I visit Rio, I try to go at least once to this restaurant. It is quite laid back (I usually go there after spending the day at the beach, still wearing bikini underneath) and food there is always fresh and tasty

Enjoyed eating our dinner outdoors here . It was just around the corner from our apartment that we rented during our visit to Rio. Food was tasty and large portions were served. Found the place via our guidebook.

The food, atmosphere, the service, everything was to my satisfaction! If you are in ipanema, you should definately try this restaurant! The only downside for smokers is that you have to stand outside in the street to smoke.
