Pappa Jacks was nice even in a large group. We had reservation for 20+ people. The background noise was high, making discussions a bit difficult. Seating was good and drinks service worked well. Service of food was slow contributing to overall only 3 stars, even if the namesake steak would have been worth a 4th star.

Pizza was OK. It wasn't the best Italian pizza ever exactly. I think it was expensive too for Rio and quality. I wouldn't rush back.

Had a nice couple of dinners here. Right around the corner from our hotel. Clean, cold beer and great pizza. One of the hostesses was English speaking and very nice to us. They had live entertainment each evening and the guitar playing and singing were above average.

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.
