We dropped in for a few beers and to catch some sports on TV. It was very busy, lively and noisy. We were able to watch the hockey game and to people watch. With respect to food, we tried one of their pizzas and it was nothing to write home about.

This bar is open 365 days a year and 24 hours a day. You therefore know the picture! If you want a burger for about $6 US then you will get it. It won't win any 'burger of the year award' but it will be freshly cooked and it will be substantial. Local drinks can be on the 'expensive' side... More

We eat here two times. First time a burger, it was nothing special. Second time a sandwich with french fries. The fries were not cooked long enough. The sandwich was nothing special. The music is good so it seems like a very nice place. But the food is not really tasting and the are a lot of hookers the whole... More

If you are looking to watch a particular match that you must see then this is a busy bar that will accommodate you. (Estonian v England) was my game. Bottled beer expensive, food was average. I was there during the day and I can only imagine what it would be like at 3am.... lively I'd expect. Working girls were mingling... More

We had lunch there. We ordered burritos and waited for an hour for our food. We inquired twice on what happened to our food before we got finally served. The food was alright when finally delivered but I was simply too hungry and annoyed to enjoy fully. Our order must have gone missing. To be fair the waitress did apologised... More

My boyfriend and I were just looking for a place to eat along Copacabana and found this place across the street. They have lots of specials for great prices. For lunch we had fillet mignon, which they brought a hot-plate to our table so we could cook it to how we wanted, garlic mashed potatoes and salad...it was WONDERFUL. They... More

I love this place. Great atmosphere, good food, great location. Always seems to be busy and something going on. Yes the place is a haven for prostitutes but they do not bother you if you are there just to eat or are drinking. It really is a "must go" place for me - because it is just so much fun.

Great burgers, the best in Rio and a good price for a thick meaty burger, and only R$19. Large TV's showing sports, especially NFL during the season. The place is clean and there is always a buzz about the place. It's a good night out

Food - very good. Location - excellent Atmosphere - seedy in the evening. Ok in the day. Not a place for the faint hearted! Working girls are there all day and particularly at night. I'd gone there with friends, after having a lovely meal I ventured inside to use the ladies toilet. On the way back to the table I... More
