This restaurant was around the corner from our hotel, and we loved it. It was quick, and easy to order and to get served. It was perfect for lunch or dinner. And language was no problem, we pointed and they understood. I'm sure that even had an English menu. The staff were friendly and the service was good.

I went to Quick Galetos last night based on the TA reviews and rating instead of going back to Galeto Sats that Lonely Planet recommends and I found excellent 2 days before. Big mistake. Only one other person there but not deterred I ordered the spring chicken and a chorizo. When the chicken came it was tough and very very... More

They are known for there charcoaled chicken!! As sides my husband and I always picks broccoli rice with Egg & banana farofa (typical brazilian side) & french fries. The heart of palm salad is simple but good. Great place for a quick lunch! Dress code is very casual.

I was there for lunch. I had a young chicken (grilled). The chicken was served with some tomato and onions. I did not want rice or french fries. Nice Restaurant. Many locals are also there

Great food and great prices. I ate lunch and dinner here today and can't wait to go back tomorrow. The chicken signature dish is really amazing. Tender and juicy with crispy skin and seasoning I wish I could buy and take home. I also tried the sea bass which was huge, perfectly cooked and delicious. Nice service too.

Went on the way back from watching the paralympics. The food was just what we needed, big portions of tasty meat cooked on the coal fire in front of you.

The food and the atmosphere are amazing! We found this place walking back from the beach to our hotel. We were in Rio for the Olympics and this was the gem place of our trip. We found it to be so amazingly delicious, convenient, and reasonably priced we ate there twice. Best two meals we had! The filet was divine!... More

Staying Copacabana and not speaking the local language I did some research on TA. The previous reports all have this small restaurant a thumbs up and I decided to give it a try. Most of the seating is at a horse shoe shaped bar counter. Inside the counter is the barbecue and bar service. Waiter spoke good English and the... More

Two thirds of the enjoyment is the food; the other third is the atmosphere. This restaurant is a horseshoe-shaped bar which opens up directly to the sidewalk. While you eat, you can watch the staff placing meat on the open pit grill, watch the TV, or watch the people moving up and down the sidewalk. If you get chicken, you... 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.
