Garota de Ipanema
One of the most famous bars in Rio where Vinicius de Morais and Tom Jobim - two well known Brazilian songwriters - wrote one of Brazil's most well known song, "Girl from Ipanema". This song was inspired by a girl who used to pass in front of the bar daily on her way to the beach. It is a bohemian bar where you can appreciate live music. There are two rooms, upstairs there is a performance room and downstairs is the restaurant itself, a meeting point where you can drink and eat. The bar has large windows from where you can appreciate the comings and goings of the trendy Ipanema crowd. Typical Brazilian cuisine, very good for drinks and snacks, and also steaks.
we had an ok meal, but not amazing. we asked at the beginning if they took amex and were told yes by one waiter... to be told at the end that they didn't. not ideal when you're saving your last pennies so you dont have to do a currency exchange on your second to last day. oh well.
After my 4th trip to Brazil, a group of 6 visited the famed restaurant on 12/12 for a lite lunch. The service was slow and the people (staff)were not very friendly. The food was of, but the pizza was BAD ...the location was great and the people were beautiful, wish the food and service were better. Too bad, though... we would made it a regular thing.
After visiting Rio more than once, this restaurant is certainly the first stop for lunch/dinner everytime. Great service, fantastic food (try the sizziling steak for a few of you). Although, I believe the best bit is just being able to watch the world go by with a nice cold beer and some of the most beautiful people in the world.
