My boyfriend and I decided to visit here for lunch after reading all of the positive TripAdvisor reviews and after seeing pineapple on their sandwiches. This feels like a very local spot with very few tourists which makes it feel like a hidden gem. I...More

If you are in Rio and starving to death, but running out of time , so you must try one of the tasty sandwiches from here, my favorite is the pork and pineapple one.

Since 1955 this traditional restaurant in Copacabana neighborhood has been serving great sandwiches and cold draft beer "chope" to its customers. My favorite sandwich there is the filet mignon with cheese and pineapple.

Very good food in the restaurant but You will find the ultimate ham sandwich will tast better at the casual bar with a tasty draft beer together with locals. By the way, any of the sandwiches looked just wonderful.

I chose the restaurant due to the strong reviews here. Definitely didn't disappoint. The signature pineapple addition to the sandwiches is what makes them special. Don't let the mundane facade deter you.

I have been visiting Cervantes for many years and have always enjoyed a great meal. You can either sit down in the restaurant or eat at the counter. For the fastest service, the counter is the way to go. My sandwich was in my hands...More

These sandwiches are characterised by huge amount of filling of your choice of meat combined with cheese (melted) and (upon your wish) slice of pineapple between the slices of warmed bread. In the bar, the sandwich is prepared in front of you, and you can...More

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
