Nice sardines to start with than a fried Bacalhau, all very good. Service was excelente! My only "not so good" comment goes to the wine list, that looked very limited, with only wines from "Alenjeto". I would include at least some "Douro Region".

The dish for 2 was well served, and 3 adults can eat easily. I know it's out of contest but the Olive Oil was delicious. The servers were very polite and treated us well.

Wouldn't come back to that place. Only 3 visitors (include me) were in the restaurant. Was a little bit price for old fashion place.

Right in the middle of Copacabana is this fish restaurant that has been around forever. On entering you just know that you're in for a treat! Fish is the speciality but the menu is large and has something for everybody not only for seafood lovers. Guided by the experienced waiter we started with a portuguese little sausage, something we had... More

This is the typical carioca old-school restaurant. Food is amazing, waiters have all been working there for ages and know the menu like the palm of their hands, the ambiance is cozy, big portions that easily serve more than one person... Highly recommended.

High quality and fresh sea food in a big, old-fashioned, traditional seafood place. It's a local's choice.

We were three people. We shared a cherne Brazilian style, and two octopuses: one with rice with broccoli, the other a "ze do pipo", alio & olio, green pepperoni, onions. Everything was great. But the octopus was perfect: so soft, really melting in the mouth.

We got this place recommended by the staff in our hotel. We asked for some place with little tourist customers and where local would go. Fantastic recommendation! I enjoy when waiters do not speak English. These Cariocas are so nice that when it comes to communicate it is fun and charming at the time. Food? DELICIOUS Will love to be... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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.
