We will come back from... More

My friend and I went back to this restaurant which I have enjoyed on previous visits. On this occasion the service was really poor. Obviously a very inexperienced waiter who had no idea about the menu and the wine list. We both had a steak with blue cheese sauce and pommes dauphinois. The wine was so hot- I am afraid... More

WQe went here as it had positive reviews. The waitress serving us seemed to be working her first night and kept messing things up. She left half the cork in the wine bottle and just pushed the remainder into the wine - a first for me! Steak and pepper sauce was steak with a dribble of tasteless fluid underneath. Later... More

There is a reason they display the TripAdvisor logo outside this restaurant, they’re confident in their ability to deliver quality. I was walking passed at lunchtime so popped in. One delicious paella later I confirm, the food here is excellent. My dish was freshly made with quality ingredients and no skimping on the prawns, octopus or squid. Can’t comment on... More

During the two weeks of the Olympics in Rio, we were staying on Rua Gustavo Sampaio in Leme and this restaurant become our local haunt - for lunch, coffee and many evenings for dinner. It is cozy and casual and has a nice "vibe" - many of the wait staff speak English (our favourite was Hosny) and the menu is... More

We have been there twice during our visit to Olympic and Rio and this became our favorite. Great food, and you should try the dessert as well. Very friendly staff.

What a pleasant surprise ! I visited this restaurant in January and the impression was average. Now the experience was quite different . The food was excellent and the service by waiter, Carlos, was superb . The atmosphere is quite relaxed and everyone feels welcome . I hope the restaurant keeps up the standard. As it is now, it can... More

Had a very nice and unique crepe dish for lunch. Good value and very nice staff. Comfortable inside or outside. House white wine was a nice choice.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood 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.
