Fodor's Review

This is the original Garota (there are branches all over the city), where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes penned the timeless song "The Girl from Ipanema." The place serves well-priced food and drink that no doubt originally appealed to the two songsmiths. Occasional live-music events take place in the upstairs lounge.
