Cozy little restaurant just a short walk up from copacabana! Good service and low prices! Quite big portions so be careful so you don't order to much! Great food!

This place is a must for foodies. We went here because of the excellent reviews and we were absolutely not dissapointed. If you like good food, you should definetely go here. Try the seviche, salmon tartare, beet gnocchi or pumpkin gnocchi. All was delicious and for sure everything else on the menu will be great too. For sure worth another... More

This is a lovely little place just off the main road. The food was delicious and the caipirinhas were the best we've had yet! The menu is a mixture of safe favourites (burger, risotto, steak etc) and some interesting variations, such as beetroot gnocchi which was on the specials board. The service was quick and friendly, and the atmosphere casual... More

We stopped in on a Thursday evening for cocktails and dinner and really enjoyed the ambiance of Zot. There were daily specials to choose from on the board which was nice. We ordered a tabla of cheese and salami, the chef's special filet and a seafood risotto. They also have a good selection of beers. Would recommend!

A hole in the wall with a delightful menu, local brews, delicious desert. Out door dining without being on sidewalk is nice

This was a great find by our apartment in Rio. It is very close to Copacabana beach. We came for some late night food and were very happy. The host/server was very helpful and spoke very good english. She talked to us about the food and drinks and helped us pick out some really great stuff. We had a really... More

This restaurant is just a block off Copacabana beach and is fine for a casual meal. We went on a Sunday evening around 8pm with a reservation, but the place was not very busy. They seem to specialize in charcuterie: salami, chorizo and such. We had a nice shrimp risotto.

located in Copacabana. It is small but they offer delicious food, good wine and music in English, which is not very common in Rio

We had a long flight to get to Rio, and although not especially hungry after being fed well on Qantas, we looked for Zot, only three or so blocks from our hotel. It is a small restaurant, with a bar and not that many tables. The blackboard menu had English translations. We opted to share a starter of ceviche with... More

Just arrived in Rio this evening and after a fairly long journey decided to just wander nearby our hotel. Zot caught our eye and we were not disappointed. Greeted by a lovely waitress who spoke English and was most helpful we consulted the menu while enjoying a couple of lovely beers, as a real ale drinker back home this was... More

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.
