This is the only place in our 10 day trip that we ate at twice, and my wife could have eaten here every other day. Delicious chicken, beef kabobs and sausages grilled right in front of you, served with delicious Mediterranean salad, potato salad, fries or rice. Simple and simply delicious. Pull up to a diner bar stool as a... More

Lots of locals and tourists alike sit and eat in this very open kitchen. We sat opposite the grill and watched our food cooked. We ate here twice on our trip to Rio and both times left full and happy. Would very much recommend the signature chicken dish and also the potato salad. All very tasty.

Met up with a couple of my partner's friends who happened to be in Rio at the same time as us. They recommended this place having been there the previous night. The menus come in English and we ordered the steak (which was HUGE!). This place gets fairly busy later in the evening to be sure to get there in... More

Just had a quick late dinner in this place after arriving at Copacabana beach. Nice friendly atmosphere and staff. Great value for quality food. All seats are at a bar which surrounds the grill. Will visit again

Really a nice place with it's own authentic atmosphere. We had the 1. dish one the menu card (roasted chicken) and it was delicious. We will most likely go back there next week.

Great restaurant for a nice easy meal. You think it's no frills which it is but it is a little bit more upmarket than you imagine. Generous portions, friendly staff, clean restaurant, amazing quality and really nice food.

Visited during Rio carnival as a group of 4. Very quick service. Liked that we could watch our food being cooked. Very convenient location a block back from the beach and near to our hotel (Royal Rio palace). We ordered the trio of kebab meats which included beef, pork and sausage, it was all delicious!

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
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.
