Fresh and tasty food, large variety, huge size of portions. Great beer. A bit hot since they don't have air conditioner.

We tried to grab some drinks today but the door girl could care less to let us know where to lock our bikes. Just rudely stared at us until we left.

It can be open air and indoors depending on your preference and the weather. I see some negative comments here about the service. I disagree and found Cariocas to... More

One can eat, have a good brazilian beer, enjoy the sea, do not care about time. They have a lot of options on the menu, I've come a lot of times to have lunch and it was always great. The hostess is really nice!

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.
