very good seafood near Copacabana beach

It is a very traditional seafood restaurant at Leme Beach. The menu is limited, but the quality of the food is excellent. It is worth trying it.

(Sorry for the pun) Nice seafood with decent variety, even though a smaller place, the five of us could fit in for a business dinner. Check it out.

We were recommended the place by our tour guide Katia and were very happy with it. It is on the second row from the sea on the Copacabana/ Leme beach. The restaurant itself is quite small so you may want to reserve ahead. It seemed to be popular both with tourists and with locals. The atmosphere is that of a... More

Very nice seafood restaurant with Portuguese influence. The sardine appetizers were great. I had the sea bass and it was superb. Portions are large enough to share. Smallish restaurant but big in flavors.

A traditional restaurant in a traditional neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro. Quite simple but fair premises, very good food and friendly service. Try the paella and the shrimps dishes. The only drawback is the cost. Very expensive for the whole thing. No cheap dishes. I am sure this is one reason why the restaurant was empty. Things must change in... More

This is a small restaurant in which they mainly serve fish dishes, especially prawns and paella. Not a cheap option, but the food is good and the choice is broad.

This quiet little 11 table restaurant is fantastic. You choose a dish from the menu, the waiter brings over the fresh seafood to your table to make sure you are satisfied with the quality before he cooks it. All the fresh seafood is displayed in a glass case upon arrival...the food and the service is spectacular !! I ordered a... More

Visited 14 December 20014 This restaurant is grubby in appearance. The service is too rushed - It's quite a long menu and we were being pushed to order before really having time to look at the menu properly. The couverte consisted of extremely dry bread, tinned and rather stale sardines and mussels. We both chose the paella which again appeared... More
