No fancy stuff here but if you want good honest food at reasonable prices then look no further. It appeared to be full of local people who knew just what to order the "mezze" looked good although we plumped for more simple fare, massive portions so worth considering sharing a starter and a main. Drinks at reasonable prices a litre... More

We ate at the Pigalle as it was next to our hotel and it was a good decision. The food was good as well as the service. The price was good for the location.

The ideal location of this restaurant and its sophisticated sounding name lured me to it. It was not as fancy as the name suggested. My juice order was incorrect. The waiter politely took it away and I settled for water instead. The service was good with one waiter going the extra mile of bringing in a table for us. The... More

Stay away from this place. Waiters fighting each other to discuss who assembles or dismounts the table. Food is drowned in oil, in fat. An official or tour guide shouting about commission and table reservation, even the cook came out to shout. For sure the worst place I had in Rio de Janeiro. I chose the proximity of the hotel...

By the Copacabana Beach ocean... that alone is a great thing, right? Good finger food, nothing fancy or even healthy. Great for a friends gathering with some beer. Staff is helpful and attentive.

Noting special, low cost, average quality, OK if you are in a hurry or not very adventurous. Location is adjacent to the Sofitel, so convenient, but it is worth straying farther afield to find something better. Take a taxi to Procao.

We stopped here for a quick bite, mostly because it was conveniently close to our hotel. The food being delivered around us both looked delicious and questionable. We ended up choosing pizza (nothing says Carioca like pizza, right?) and were very pleased. This was nothing spectacular but it certainly was satisfying. Prices, for being right across from the beach, were... More

I happened to pass by this restaurant, next to the Sofitel, while walking along Copacabana beach. Their menu looked like all the others I had seen, offering beef and fish dishes. But they had a promo menu written in chalk for a special lobster dish for 85 reai so i fell for it. Well I couldn't have been happier. I... More

My family and I went to this place, conveniently located to have a quick lunch before a visit of Rio. The service was correct and we ordered 4 lasagna ! It tasted pretty good and we left.

I had eaten here before, in 2005 or thereabouts,. I was expecting fairly standard Brazilian meat or sea food. That is what we got - a good fish dish between two, plenty of pirao, rice and chips. Boring salad. Beer normal. Service particularly good. Certainly nmot the most inspirational Rio restaurant, but not the worst either. And if it is... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
