Nice and quite place, has a wonderful view from Lagoa. It's a very relaxed enviroment, It's more of a bar than a restaurant. Good for apetizers and drinks. I recommend going at night.

Staying in Copacabana is great but the hustle & bustle can be a bit stifling a times. So we decided to take a recommendation and headed to the lake at sunset to have a walk around, during which we encountered this charming little spot. It was really nice to sit on their (seemingly) home made wooden furniture, have a few... More

Perfect location for a chilly sunset (if u'r not into Arpoador obviously!) Nice place, relaxing location, good drinks and fine apetizers. Not really very cheap, but wirth it. Could have been stay there longer!

Perfect place to wind-down to watch the sunset with a craft cocktail, Palaphita Kitch is one of those "just add people" places. The more folks are lounging in the comfortable outdoor living rooms (complete with lamps) the more fun the experience becomes.

we went there to celebrate 2 successful weeks of hard work and training workshops and it was perfect. Icy cold and reasonably priced champagne, good service though only one waiter had reasonable English which made it a bit of a challenge but we managed, I had a spicy prawn(shrimp) dish that was delicious and then we had a gorgeous dessert...

The view, music and atmosphere are unique, but the terrible service and even worse drinks make this place extremely overpriced.

Looks like prices are focused on tourists. Has highly increased prices lately. Worth the view, specially in the sunset, but would not recommend.
