It’s the only place located by post 3 (center of coppacabana beach). The prices are terrible and the food is not that great either. If you insist to eat on the boardwalk, take a short walk towards post 4, and find better options for cheaper. You can always cross the road and find all sort of restaurants that will Ofer all sort of meal deals. I preferred walking a few streets in and find local food for very reasonable prices and delicious.

Avoid this place !! They are not honest, the barman told us about a promotion for caipirinha, and propose something that was not in the promotion on purpose and made us believe it was on promotion. At the end we paid everything and they didn’t make any commercial gesture ! A shame, after 5 sixth months in Brazil it’s the first time!
Evite este lugar !! Eles não são honestos, o barman nos contou sobre uma promoção para a caipirinha, e propôs algo que não estava na promoção de propósito e nos fez acreditar que estava em promoção. No final pagamos tudo e eles não fizeram nenhum gesto comercial! Uma pena, depois de 5 sextos meses no Brasil é a primeira vez!

Perfect compared to the other restaurants direct on the beach of Copacabana. Food is good and the staff is dedicated to his customers. We received a warm welcome the two times we had dinner which is kind of rare in a place so touristic. We were travelling with our children aged 13 and 17 and everyhing was convenient for all of us. The atmosphere is calm and no one i.e. sellers will bother you during your meal as they are not authorized to enter the restaurant which is not the case in all the places.

We had at two of the Costello restaurants on the beach. Both had great food and good service. Service not the best; but we were watching the beach anyway.
