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

We went here more or less every day either at the start of the night or to end the night. It's open 24 hours and full of debauchery ( ;). Food is good and there are plenty of ladies to keep you occupied.

Went to Balcony Bar for lunch and ordered the chicken/beef skewers and sausage with onion. Food was reasonable but nothing special or worthy enough to consider going back. There was a waitress who spoke fluent English which helped as we had been struggling at a few places. There were also multiple TVs showing sport so if you want to watch... More

Me and my girlfriend were on vacations in Rio and some friends recommended us to go to Balcony bar-restaurant. In the first time we asked for a 'Filete mignon parrillada' which is a self cook barbecue with 5 steaks. You can order it with 2 side dishes...PERFECT FOR 2! That plate is very cheap and big. We also ordered very... More
