Housed in a 1920s mansion on a side street off Rua Visconde de Pirajá, Gula Gula, the lead outlet of this classy steak-house chain, is a stalwart dining option that attracts upper-crust Carioca regulars with its well-executed grilled meats, chicken, and fish. Rio's daily O Globo newspaper, however, singled out the vegetarian options—palm hearts and watercress with raisin dressing; Andean corn with a piquant pineapple sauce; smoked salmon with mint leaves; and the Mediterranean Salad, a towering mound of shrimp, squid, zucchini, and tarragon-marinated hearts of palm—for its Best Salad prize in 2010. The cavernous dining rooms include an airy antechamber with two-tone floor tiles and potted palms and a wood-clad bar with orange acrylic seating. The street-facing terrace is great for admiring Ipanema's bright and beautiful.

Open Sundays to Thursdays noon to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays noon to 1 am.
