Great local spot for a quick bite

This is a great local restaurant that has all the traditional Rio fare along with a lot of other dishes so you should be able to find something that everyone will like no matter how unadventerous they are.

This sidewalk cafe sits a block off Copacabana on a noisy street. You are entertained while you eat. The extensive menu is in English. We ordered a chicken sandwich, French Fries, 2 beers, garlic bread (yum!), tasty potato soup with greens and sausage-all for $20. The staff is friendly and many locals eat here. Check it out!

Loved it 2 years ago and still do. Very informal outdoors Cafe/Restaurant on noisy Ave Nossa Senhora de Copacabana. Our favorite breakfast and lunch place with the same friendly waiters, good and cheap food, noisy street and busy people passing by.

We luckily stumbled upon this little street cafe one night during World Cup. We were able to get a massive (and tasty) meal for two for less than 35 Realis. Can't beat that! Great service and every seat offers you a view of a very lively street. If people watching is your thing, this is the place to go!

Copacabana is my natural habitat and I know well most of the restaruants in the area. Bar 420 is one of my favorities in the Posto 3 area, near the Copacabana Palace hotel. Food, caipirinhas, draft beer and the simpathy of the waiters are all excelent. The empadinhas de frango or camarão (chicken or shrimp little pies) are the best... More

Second visit to Bar 420 and what exceptional service again. Last visit in Sept 2012 was exceptionally special with awesome food and attentive service. Tonight was no different - great service, superb food (quality, flavours and quantity). Being on the sidewalk the waiter asked me to take care of my mobile phone just in case a street kid came by....

Good service and nice fresh food for a street cafe. Busy location with traffic and people moving by. Large menu in portuguese and english. Fair prices. Payed about 10USD for a lunch with a steak, vegetables and fries. I am not sure I would rate this "very good" but it is better than average. In my eyes "good" would be... More

A lively street cafe serving good freshly cooked food and of course great Coffee - menus have English which helps if you don't do Portugese - service is friendly and efficient - if you want to soak up local atmosphere this is the place.

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.
