Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited with a friend, we were joking about doing all 14 of the meats on the menu, whether we could. Didn't need worry, because over the course of about 70 minutes they only brought around 10 of them, sitting between tiny samples of meat feeling...bad for asking for a second tiny slice.......finally about 8.20pm they just stopped serving us, staff were cleaning the tables and getting ready to shut, no one even spoke to us, the service just stopped.More

Honestly this place is terrible. Asked what was gluten free on salad bar, and our waiter said he wasn’t sure, and that we’d have to “have a look”, nothing on the salad bar had any allergen information on. We ordered wings and thighs gluten free,...and it came out on a pitta bread!! Which has gluten on. The incorrect drink was brought out. The wait between the meats was ridiculous, honestly about 10/15mins between each meat. And the wait for drinks was about 30mins, even though the place was empty! We had to go to the bar and bring the drinks over ourselves. Even the music was heavy gangsta rap, broken up by Spotify adverts. Terrible service. Could be brilliant, but would not recommend.More

This was our second visit to Copacabana after having our first meal there last year, and it definitely didn't disappoint once again! The meat was so tender and full of flavour, and the portions were very generous. Very friendly staff.

In leaving this review I am learning a valuable lesson. Always read reviews before you visit any place. My Son asked to go here for his 18th Birthday so sadly I never questioned it. Without doubt one of the worst meals I've ever had. This...place is an absolute disgrace and should close ASAP before causing any further embarrassment. I should have known when we found it deserted on a Friday night whilst everywhere around it was busy. The first thing you get told is that if you don't order the hugely overpriced Rodizio (£29) and you attempt to eat meat off someone else's plate then you will be asked to leave. Wow, talk about a welcome. The service was OK to start off with then degenerated as the evening went on. I had to shift plates for our party of 15 about 4-5 times whilst the two waitresses watched on indifferently from the counter. If you don't order the meat feast you have a few other options which are a supposed to be a combination of meats for around £17. What they send out is the biggest disgrace on a plate I have ever seen. Some dried cuts of meat, tiny portions with half a plate of nacho crisps. What on earth is all that about. Had we not have had a few disabled in our party I would have left right there and then. The rodizio was OK if you didn't fall asleep waiting for the next round. Drinks were poor, hardly any alcohol in the £9 cocktails and the gaff had that smell of stale ale you expect in a Dock Road pub. This place needs a good clean. Tables grotty when we entered, chipped paint, dirty carpets. The sign of a place where no one cares about quality any more. Then the toilet incident. Taking my Wife to the disabled toilet was met by my sister who had found a turd on the floor. She threw toilet paper on it. It absolutely stunk and was feet away from a full table. And what did the staff do? Simply locked the door so no-one could use the disabled loo. When I remonstrated with them they accused me of being rude then followed me to my table telling me it wasn't a turd but a piece of meat. Believe me, it was human excrement. We had a few people come late and I advised them not to waste their money. I wasted a huge amount of money on this gaff. But my main gripe is that it ruined what should have been a great family get together. Shut down, refurbish, sort your menu and get new staff who actually care about what they are serving up. Give this place a very wide berth. It is awful in every aspect.More

Quite possibly the worst experience I've ever had in any restaurant. Service was appalling. There were two waitresses who were very surly and miserable. Barely spoke English and could hardly understand a word they said . Upon ordering the 14 type of meat meal for...my daughter the server barked at me that under no circumstances was I to take anything off my daughters plate or I would have to leave! How embarrassing! I'm not in the habit of taking food of anyone's plate! After being told we could get salads we then waited ages for the food. I was served 2 strips of shoe leather and two pieces of lamb and the rest of the plate was full of doritos! Seriously £16.95 for a plate of doritos. Who eats doritos with meat? They got scraped straight off the plate whilst I tackled the strips of leather. Dirty plates were left so long one of our party gathered them up and left them on the bar. Took my mother to the disabled toilet to be greeted by a pile of sh## on the floor. I covered it with toilet paper, the smell was disgusting. One of us pointed it out to the waitress and a few minutes later she came to our table and shouted that we had lied, it wasn't poo it was actually a piece of meat on the floor! Unbelievable! The man who served the meat was the only worker who smiled. My nephew chose here for his birthday so I didn't want to complain. Honestly this place is dire,don't waste your money!More

Salad bar amazing along with hot and cold dishes and super selection of salads....Meats included Beef ribs - Steak - Pork - Minted Lamb - Chicken Wings - Chicken Thighs - Spicy Sausage and the list went on........ Service with a smile. Situated 5 minutes walk from Lime Street Station and Cavern Walks area.More

Wow what a diner and incredibly good value. The salad bar was varied with some good home made recipes no limit. Great menu with lots of choices available. The meat is to die for as it is barbecued while you wait and cut from a...big skewer by the table the lamb and the beef were so tender with a crispy glaze and the best I have had for years.

Visited as the pictures of the meat looked so good...we are meat eaters. We waited a while to be seated despite booking and tables being vacant. Not a problem really, we watched what was going on. Drinks appeared to be made and served by the...wait staff which added to the time. Once seated we were given the instructions for helping ourselves to accompaniments and that they guys would come around with meats. When the did, they gave a couple of small slices and moved on. The meat is cooked fresh on the skewer under the grill so doent come around quickly. By the time it comes around again you've probably eaten more accompaniments...that and the time taken to come around to you meant that half an hour in and you were struggling to eat anymore. I wouldn't consider that we got our moneys worth really but what we had was lovely. Wouldn't go again tho...need more meat...lolMore

What a fantastic restuarant. The other reviews are clearly competitors trying to drag the place down. We attended here on Saturday 16th December for our work night out. We where greeted by a very friendly waitress who showed us to our table after giving it...a wipe over and pushed 2 tables together for us. The menus quickly followed along with an explanation of how the menu works. Drink orders quickly followed and where brought out promptly. The hot food and salad bar was fantastic, plenty of fresh salad and hot food, the curry & mushrooms where amazing! We also had someone in our party who has Coeliac and the waitress was very good and aware of what meats she couldn't eat and what was safe on the salad/hot food bar. She also double checked on the chips as well for us. Unfortunately, the Stella lager was off and had bits in, this was dealt with promptly with a big apology! It happens so no issue at all. The meats soon came out once we all had a plate and flowed at a steady pace. Out of the 14 meats on the menu, we had 12 of them served to our table followed by Pineapple. The waiters carving the meats where very friendly and enjoyed their job! The meats where top quality and they would cook it to order, so some of us liked it a little pinker than others they would cook it well done and come back. All very tasty and tender! All of my staff commented on how much they enjoyed the meal and the restaurant. Compared to other restaurants of similar style in the area Copacabana, is the most reasonably priced. Drinks where not badly priced either. Overall, we had such a fantastic time and I would most certainly go back and recommend to others! Big thanks to all of the staff!More
