This is one of the best Lebanese restaurants in Rio. We went there for dinner and ordered vegetarian platter, and chicken kafta. Everything tasted great and the best thing was hummus. I would highly recommend this place if you are around copacabana beach.

Dropped in after finding a number of positive reviews online and was really impressed with the buffet offerings, along with the cheap price for an all you can eat arrangement. The desserts in particular were on point, and the stuffed vegetables were outstanding as well....More

Came in for lunch based on all the positive reviews. I ordered a lamb shawarma in a wrap and it was easily the size of my head - imagine 2 large burritos. I've had much better in most other restaurants so I think I did...More

This place serves up some pretty amazing Lebanese food. Really good Hummus and shawarma right on Copacabana Beach. Very good grilled rack of lamb and also skewered kafta.

While we got a lot of food and nice variety when ordering the combination dish, the quality of the different dishes left a lot of room for improvement. This is at best mediocre quality Mediterranean food.

We had a good meal at Amir during our stay in Rio. The portions are big so were grateful that the waiter stopped us ordering a 2nd main course as one is more than enough for two after starters. Friendly service and food very good.

I love their whole menu, especially the cheese burratas; falafel + salad and the huge falafel sandwich (with a little 'harissa' sauce = very hot); the 'charutos' wrapped in grape leafs; the 'coalhada' and the humus (mix them!). There's also a little store there, selling...More

When looking for veg food in Rio, Amir has a nice veg platter (and non-veg platters as well) which includes lots of your favorite middle eastern treats like falafel, moutabbal, hummus, fattouche, koshiri, etc. It's a short walk from the Copacabana beach area and the...More

On a relaxing evening sitting outside opposite the flower kiosk we had a good evening meal. Very good service. We had houmus type starters with breads followed by chicken and steak kebabs. Substantial portions but very flavoursome.

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
