Showed up without a reservation at 7pm. Was made wait 10min in the street in front of the restaurant, during which I was on the phone. Hostess sighed as if annoyed. Wtf? I was not loud - and even if I had been, is that a way to handle customers? Anyway, past this, was directed to a table next to... More

A late lunch today, I must say I liked the atmosphere, drinks well prepared, reasonable wine list, the meat good and juicy, fine background piano music ... all very good. What didn't like is that they tried to charge me an extra bottle of wine on my bill, so 4 stars only.

I asked the locals where to go for a real Brazilian churrascaria in Rio; they sent me to the Churrascaria Palace. I went for lunch. The food was delicious. A huge selection of seafood and meats, Brazilian beers and wines.

Some of the very best BBQ and steak that I have ever eaten. The appetizers and salads that are self serve are delicious but one must pace themselves or you won't have room for all of the delicious meats. And, once they start coming it is nonstop! My problem was that I would not be finished with one meat before... More

If you are after an amazing Brazillian barbecue experience then look no further. The place had everything you could want for an exciting food experience. The waiters bring BBQ to your table and slice meat exactly how much you want. The brisket for us was the best! Literally perfect mix of meat and fat that melted in your mouth! The... More

This is an old time favorite, Brazilian BBQ is a perfect way to eat specially if you are hungry. It did not disappoint this time either, food was overall very good and it also had live music. Highly recommended!

Great Brazilian BBQ. Do not eat too much of the plentiful appetizers. There are lots of meat dishes that are brought to your table. Smooth piano player.

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.
