It is a decent restaurant, with basic food, not fast food, and varied during the week. Executive dinners and special "feijoada" on Friday. A good option for lunch.

Since we really like Garota de Ipanema we decided to give this Garota a try and it did not disappoint! The picanha na chapa is delicious, the side dishes were all tasty (great farofa!) and good portions. The draft beer (chopp) was nice and cold and the service was quite good. Would definitely go back.

Just had picanha, served almost raw on a table grill so you can cook it to your taste. It was very good. Accompanied by mountains of french fries and rice. It is a traditional Brasilian restaurant on the corner of a busy square in Gávea, near the botanical garden and Lagoa, and close to a shopping area. Service was ok... More

We had a sizzling BBQ meat dish to share, served with broccoli rice, fries and some fried wheat thing. Our tour guide recommended it and he was spot on. All washed down with an ice cold Choppe. I'm going to come back!

As we were starving we ordered lots of food: pasteis, picanha and pizza. The pasteis were strange, I tasted better ones. Picanha was incredible! Excellent meat! And pizza, well... Has nothing in common with Italia. Actually we could have eaten only the picanha because this meal was huge (we were five). Good homemade juices by the way.

This is an excellent place for typical Brazilian food. My wife an I had the obligatory caipirinhas, cheese pastry for starters and we shared one portion of picanha (top sirloin). Everything was excellent; the chope (draft beer) cool and fresh and more than enough to eat. The portion of picanha was an estimated 2(!) pounds. Enough for four hungry people... More
