My wife and I followed the concierges suggestion and walked over here and had a great meal and the service was excellent. From the outside it doesn't look like much and it is small but it has been there over 30 years and had a great charm about it and a lot of locals there which is always a good... read more

We visited this restaurant today and it was amazing. A nice gentleman at a table behind us told us that this is the best seafood restaurant in rio and he has been coming in the last 60 years. The lobster, king prawn and beef steak were all excellent!

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in Sao Paulo. He recommended the King Prawns with a cheese filling - if you haven't eaten this dish, you haven't lived!

At this restaurant you will get traditional portuguese seafood - when you enter the restaurant- it feels like you´re in the sixties - in a good way. They serve bacalao, shellfish, grilled lula - perfect food. I will especially recommende a platter with fish baked in the oven with vegetables in a white wine/curry sauce - heaven!!! Only cash payment!... More

Good appetizers and good seafood. Ordered shrimp dish made with white wine, tomato and onions. Food wasn't salty for a change and shrimp was very fresh. One dish is big for two person! Would like to visit again next time :)

Food took for ever but was very good. Staff friendly, little bit of English most with hand signals but they tried. Overall good... More

(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.
