We stumbled upon this place while looking for a restaurant for lunch, they had a line out the door so therefore we waited for a spot. It's a quick service as they serve the food around a bar. The food was hands down the best food we are in Rio. MUST Check it out and we will definitely be back... More

I stumbled upon this place by accident. It was near closing and empty, but I was still offered food. I finished up eating here two nights in a row. Both times the food was superb and very good value for money. There are no frills here, what you see is what you get. Service is blunt but also very good.... More

Busy convivial easy dining. The barbecue chicken (gelato) and steak were both fabulous. Worth stopping by if in the area.

Service was quick (pun intended), galetos were OK but certainly not as good as "Galetos Sat" down the street. Only beer and wine, so no caipirinhas here :(.... Must say the quality was very good, and the galetos were crispy, juicy and fresh, portions were generous, just not as tasty as their competitors down the street. Courteous, prompt and professional...

Would definitely recommend this place. Relatively inexpensive and good quality food. We ate here twice on our trip to Rio. Would recommend pointing out the items on the menu that you would like as English is not well spoken by the waiters. The chicken is enough for two people and is delicious.

My friends and I eat here and it was ok and I came back again but one of my friends loved it so much he came here every night. The meats were very well done, and the guy cooking it washed his hands everytime he handled meats that I felt they took hygiene very well ...you must try the chicken... More

Just because it has "galetos" in its name, it doesn't mean that it is just about roast chicken on a skewer. There is every other kind of barbecued beef, seafood, pork and sausages there, too. In a clean-and-airy but very informal setting, one can do serious damage to one's diet there, in a matter of 15 minutes of less. I... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
