Delicious meat, the best restaurant I went to in Rio. They cook the meat in the middle of the restaurant, right in front of you on a BBQ. The chicken was the best, but everything we tried was great.

Eat in a bar-style manner, enjoy good food that is served by english speaking waiters. The chicken seems to be a favourite at the place and I do concur!

We stumbled across this place whilst walking the streets of Copacabana and have already been there twice (and planning another visit before we leave Rio). The customers we chatted to were also on a repeat visit...that should be a testament to the food that is being served there. THE BEST chicken, pork and beef I have ever tasted!!! We ate... More

This inconspicuous eatery seems to be packing in more and more tourist reviews and well deservedly so. Staff are efficient - diners are seated in a square shape around the grill and usually 2 servers are on duty, 1 for each side. Chicken is their speciality, though we tried their pork and tasted really wonderful. You may get heady with... More

My husband loves eating with his hands, so the baby char rotisserie chicken was perfect, washed down with a cold beer

We had a great steak with rice and some good juicy grilled chicken and a coke here for about 70 reals. The guy serving us was not of the talking type but wasn't unfriendly either. He was ok :) The food was all really good for a fair price. Give it a try!

While walking back to the hotel after visiting Copacabana beach during the rain we decided to walk in here and we had a nice dinner, Without the rain we would have missed it.

A great place for a quick lunch if you find yourself around the area. It's located nearby Copacabana palace. Nice barbequed chicken (but they also have other types of meat/sausages) and various types of side dish (french fries, different types of salad, tapioca flour dish called "farofa", rice..etc) The place is not very touristic yet, mostly locals eating there with...

We stumbled upon Quick Galetos walking from the Copabana Palace hotel looking for food for our hungry teens. What a home run Quick Galetos was! We ordered the galeto (chicken) and french fries. The grill was right in front of us and we watched the cook (I don't think I can call him a chef) roast chicken and different cuts... More
