On our first night, not knowing where to go, the hotel sent us here. It was a nice restaurant. You could pick an appetizer or a side dish from the buffet and round they came with tons of different kinds of meat. The meats were all delicious. We were luckier then the people next to us, they were complaining that... More

Been here during a weekend in Rio suggested by the hotel staff. Classic elegant churrascheria (a bit anonymous) in Copacabana 2 minutes walking from the beach. The meat is good but lined up with other less expensive churrascherie in Brazil. Good to have oysters as a starter. To sum up: good meat but too expensive for what you have.

Good afternoon, dear client! First of all, it was a pleasure to welcome you! Dear client, for sure, we are not the cheapest steak house in Rio, but to offer high quality products, unfortunately, it costs a little bit more. Thank you! Best Regards, Lídia Fernandes. More

We arrived early for dinner at around 18:30 and at that time it was very quiet. However, by 19:30 it was packed! Buffet was excellent with lots of choices but the meat was absolutely fantastic! I wish I could have eaten more. There was sausage, chicken, chicken hearts, lamb chops, top sirloin (the best for me!), fillet, prime rib, slow... More

If you've eaten in a churrascaria restaurant in your own country, you have some idea of what to expect here. For those of you who haven't, you're in for a fun and "typical" Brazilian experience! Churrascaria Palace is easy to find if you're staying in the Copacabana area. Facing the famous Palace Hotel, with the beach and ocean to your... 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.
