We arrived that night and found this place through an online search. Clearly it's popular, especially with locals - the place was jammed when we got there. We still managed to find a table (luck, I suppose) and enjoy our evening there. Great energy from...More

The location is a good start, close to the beach and right in the heart of the Copacabana quarter. Every day the terraces are packed with locals, creating a signature location you need to experience while in Rio. I haven't even mentioned the food yet...More

Saw this described as a tapas bar so popped in whilst in Rio. Nice place good place to sit at chat but it’s a snack bar at best. Good corner location expect to pay £3 for a snack.

I come once a year to Rio and always stop at the Pavao Azul for a drink and some food. In my opinion it is the best in Rio. The very chilled beer, the fantastic pasteis de camarao plus the bolinhos de bacalhau ate must!

Went there on a Friday night. Was packed in the street with locals. Nobody spoke English and we tried to figure out how to order because everybody was standing with their drinks on barstools. Went in to ask and they were super friendly! You can...More
