Its formal and fancy but is that why you came to ipanema? Food is average on an interntional standard and expensive on a rio standard.

In Brazil, many people mistake value for price. If one specific restaurant is expensive, you will probably find many outstanding reviews about it in Tripadvisor. I will not talk about price, I'll talk about value. I have been to Fasano al Mare 3 times, all of them for business reasons. In each one of these opportunities I experienced good service,... More

Bad service, very mediocre food, and way overpriced for what you get. We sat outside and the atmosphere was good until one of the waiters started sweeping around us. We tried to order our food but they were out of a lot of their menu items. The food was not that good and the wine was even worse (ok, we'll... More

Hotel bouncers treated us super rudely: we had to wait for 10 minutes outside for them to even let us into the hotel for a previously booked 10+ person business dinner. Since we arrived a bit early, we were ordered by the snooty Maitre D to wait in the lobby, not at the restaurant bar which was open and empty.... More

This is a really nice space to eat in. It's got a nice bar as you enter and the room is designed by Philip Starck so it's quite modern but has some good texture to soften the look. It's a lively bustling atmosphere. The food is traditional Italian with a modern twist. I had a raw fish 3 ways to... More

Excellent food and service in a refined and elegant setting. Knowledgeable and friendly staff ensure the guest's preferences are maximized. Great extensive wine list with knowledgeable sommelier; but as always in Brazil it is best to stick with South American wines and they even have some small production southern-Brazil wines of high international standard produced by a few passionate wine-makers...

Description
The culinary tradition of the Fasano family finds a home in Rio de Janeiro at Fasano Al Mare, harmonizing perfectly with the marvelous city. Lead by restaurateur Rogério Fasano, the kitchen is run by chef Paolo Lavezzini, who joined the Fasano team from the Michelin three-star Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. The refined menu features the diverse aspects of Mediterranean cuisine, with a special focus on seafood. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily in the main dining area as well as the inviting terrace. Designed by Philippe Starck to offer beautiful views of the sidewalks of Ipanema, the restaurant also has a private dining area, concealed by white linen curtains, a Starck signature. Scandinavian tables are arranged under a splendid Murano chandelier.
