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.

Bar 420 has become our neighborhood go to restaurant while living in Rio. The food is consistently good. If you start with the cheese balls (and perhaps the linguica) just order one main dish to share. The waiters are friendly and attentive. Just a few blocks inland from the Copacabana Palace and The Excelsior, the reasonable prices and good tastes... More
