We had stuffed crab to start which was delicious. Next came Sirloin steak and it was enough to feed 4 people so lots of waste. Would have been better to share one portion. Good, old fashioned service. They couldn’t work out how to charge my...More

Beautiful food here although I got many ugly stares from people. Maybe because i was dressed in a singlet and shorts. My bad. Language barrier is definitly an issue though. Silent communication makes it very awkward.

In the past this was a great restaurant. The owner was always on top of everything and one would eat great food here. Since the new generation assumed , service has deteriorated dramatically and quality dropped. However, the "filets" are still respectable and the old...More

We visited here four times! Great staff. Very good local food but take care - very large portions so share! We loved it! A real favourite. Tip - try the sea bass with spinach and mash - delicious.

Huge portions great service. Cesare is a very traditional restaurant at the beginning of Copacabana. The draft beer could be better. Just a little training with Brahma experts and the quality will improve. I recommend the "cozido" served on Fridays.

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,

price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
