Too many for too little. Food is regular, not really great but kind of expensive. Great view of Ipanema beach but we normally go to a restaurant to eat, right? So, other options are available around here...

Service was very courteous and helpful. Ambience was very nice and the view of Ipanema Beach is awesome. The food was delicious. Being diabetic, I would only have liked to find sugar-free dessert options in the menu.

It is a good restaurant, but too much expensive, the options are good, good list of wines, but because of the location is too far expensive.

We are as a four for two courses (starter and main). The restaurant is lively with a comfortable but stylish finish. The views are the initial draw looking directly over the crashing waves of Ipanema beach. The wine was good and the Wine list reasonable. The food was wonderful. Served with style and panache. A real mix of Brazilian cooking... More

The service at this stylish restaurant with wonderful views of Ipanema beach was warm and friendly without being intrusive. The waiting staff went out of their way to help with questions about the food as well as enquiries about local artists that were represented in the restaurant. The food was delicious. We especially loved the gazpacho which was made with... More

We came here as a group of four on our last night in Rio. The service was impeccable and we all enjoyed our food. The waitress was wonderful, exceptionally polite and very attentive. We loved the location in the heart of ipanema overlooking the beach. Deducted one point only due to it being our most expensive meal whilst in Rio.

Thank Ryan_and_Charlotte
