Until recently, the gastronomic map of Budapest has been lacking Brazilian flavours, but now you can finally taste the best of South America, as the IPANEMA Brazilian Grill has opened at The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest. On Fashion Street, you can sit on a lavish summer terrace and enjoy a real Latin-American culinary experience, tasting dishes such as legendary Brazilian churrasco while sipping a caipirinha cocktail, another Brazilian trademark.
Churrasco is not just a dish, but a way of life. On the streets of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, churrascarias line up side by side, where you can tuck into this traditional Brazilian dish in relaxed fashion, succulent and specially seasoned meat grilling over glowing embers.
This vibrant South-American atmosphere, exciting flavours and spectacular cuisine, have now come to downtown Budapest at IPANEMA, where you can experience the invigorating Latin feeling of life over dinner.
The traditional food and beverage offer is complemented by typical Hungarian ingredients and the legendary Ritz-Carlton service. The unique menu is available from early afternoon to late evening and appeals to groups with different tastes, from locals to curious hotel guests, to discover churrasco and other Latin-American dishes.
In June, look out for various opening promotions: Snacks to share appetisers for two, combined with drinks (1 appetiser + 2 Dreher beers, 4,000 HUF), Happy Hour (buy 1, get 1 free) cocktail offer available every day of the week from 5.30pm to 7pm, and, as part of the Cocktail Kombo campaign, you can choose 3 cocktails from the menu for 5,000 forints.
Not only are the
atmosphere and taste experience sumptuous, but the offer is also exotic. In
Brazil, there is a long tradition of rodizio, where you can not only choose
from the menu, but dine in interactive fashion on ever finer dishes.
At IPANEMA, authentic Brazilian food and cocktails are served in an original and playful way, which fits perfectly with the sophisticated style of The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest. The beverage philosophy is based on caipirinhas, Latin soft drinks and artisanal cocktails, South-American coffees, local beer and wine.
The use of high-quality
and homemade ingredients, the creative presentation, the use of unique tools, plus exciting and fun preparation, together make IPANEMA drinks truly special and
offer a new experience.
There’s a special focus on horchata and agua fresca, neither too well-known in Budapest now, but with their refreshing taste they are guaranteed to become new favourites. The great barista coffees made with South-American coffee beans, café con leche, cubano and café de olla, as well as original coffee cocktails such as carajillo de mesa, pay homage to Latin coffee culture.
IPANEMA is really
more than just a restaurant, you may rather call it a cultural adventure built
around South-American gastronomy, as here you can discover Latin diversity, become
acquainted with traditional food, drink, celebrations and music.
Every two weeks, live music evenings await, offering the perfect opportunity to relax before dinner, with exciting cocktails or Brazilian drink specialities on hand, while the bossa nova or a Latin DJ plays to provide a lively atmosphere.
The IPANEMA Brazilian Grill is a churrascaria in its original form, yet with an exciting, modern twist to South-American cuisine and atmosphere, with interactive, playful presentations, handcrafted cocktails and true Latin rhythms, inviting you to discover special flavours in the heart of Budapest.
