I went to this restaurant in February 2019. Steak, french fries, rice and farofa are always on the menu. The steak is pretty good, and the price is right. Yet for me it is the ability to meet new people from all over the world....More

Surreal and warm spot where you can listen to a hot Blues & rock'n roll Jam on Thursdays evenings. After hours and on other week days they plsy DJs and other stuff; Definitely not a family place though, but good enough for a funnny happy...More

First place we stumbled across so be warned like we wish we were... service is excruciatingly slow.... the slowest service we and our fellow diners had ever suffered. One by one we watched people complain, then our hunger crept in... it was like (I imagine)...More

I will never go again to that place. Food is really normal, drinks are bad, I requested a "Mojito" but it was really bad.

Quite pricy, for an eatery on the Copacabana their English is terrible. The food was tasty but not exactly what I ordered. And during the meal we were interrupted by a hawker. Not a good experience, and we were sitting inside. Plus steer clear of...More

The dessert menu is right in front of you and is constantly changing. It’s highly recommended you get there around 10/11pm as some of the best food does run out. You could go there every night for a month and not get bored. Some people...More

If I could give this place a ZERO I would. This place is ridiculous...full of prostitutes, as well as crackheads, and husslers. The prostitutes are hoping to set up some dumb American just stupid enough to invite them to their room. Guys who fall for...More

No one comes here to eat or drink. The prices are a level or two higher than other beach side places. Working girls are the big attraction.

I'm using Maps when I'm in Rio, but it's getting worse and worse. Before, you could get good Spareribs and Bacala Bolinho here, but now it was limited. Were in 2 evenings, ordered me Bacalao Bolhinio but it was not good. Later in the evening,...More

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
