Most items on the menu are for two people; however, they can scale it down (including the price) for a single person. I had mixed meat for one person, and the portion could still serve two. Together with a beer and the service (which was professional and friendly), the bill totalled to R$ 55.

On the basis of trip advisor reviews my colleagues and I checked out this place. Doesn't look much from the outside but a warm welcome persuaded us to go inside. We had a very enjoyable meal, my 'top sirloin' or picanha was excellent and all washed down with a good Malbec. Highly recommended if you are staying at the south end of copacabana.

The restaurant was suggested by a staff member at the Atlantis Copacabana for their beef dishes. The menu is huge and the options are great. I was given the option of ordering a half portion of Churrasco. Trust me it was plenty. By the way, some restaurants serve portions for one person that can easily feed two people. The beef was cooked to perfection! The price for the whole meal with two caipirinhas was very affordable. This is not a fancy place, but you won't be disappointed. Great last meal in Rio!

This restaurant is very well located, in the Arpoador, a small neighborhood between Copacabana and Ipanema. There is two options of ambient: one real bar/ open/sidewalk (a tradition in Rio, where one puts the client's tables on the sidewalk to a nice talk whlie seeing the people passing by, going or returning from the beach. It is near some hotels like Fasano, Mercure, Arpoador Inn, etc.
The food are excellent, they offer a menu of options that cover very different cuisines and tastes. Impossible not to find something that you like. You can find since a steak or a "picanha" (rump steak - brazilian's favorite meat) for R$40 to some more refined thing, like a codfish. Plenty of pizzas, salads and appetizers too.
I was introduced to the restaurant for a friend who lives in the area for the last 40 years... and i loved.

Probably one of the few places where they take the time to make a proper cabrito.

* well prepared classic dishes
* authentic ambiance
* covenient location at the far end of the Copacabana, near the Sofitel
* good service

* some would say it is not fancy enough
* some would say the interior could do with a fresher look
Both are a matter of taste ;-)

Go there for the tenderest of cabrito, touch it and it falls from the bone!
