We stayed at Copacabana Palace and we went there twice, perhaps really for the convenience, but also, because the food is not bad, not at all. Some of the food and restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor are obviously submitted by people with little experience in dining at upscale restaurants. Therefore, I'd be quite careful when reading the reviews for this restaurant,... More

We are vegetarians and were looking forward to a god experience given the reviews. However, the experience turned out to be quite disappointing to say mildly. The food was bland and unappetizing. We were served sauces only when we asked for it. The portion a were small. The pad Thai had only broccoli and onions with no base sauce! The... More

One of three options for dining in the Belmond Palace, Mee offers very personal service. We started our experience with cocktails beside the pool then moved to our table where we had a beautifully-prepared meal.

We discovered the existence of this place too late , it's not open for lunch and we already had dinner reservations for our last night in Rio but we managed a beautiful cocktail . The décor is striking and we were entertained by some of the chefs preparing sushi for that evening's service. The bar area is small but the... More

We ate here during Carnival when we stayed at the hotel We felt it was very ordinary, and although the sushi was good it was not better than any sushi bar here in California. We also ordered some dim sum, which by any measure was lacking in taste ad well as uniqueness. While we were having dinner the manager and... More

Loved this place. The service, food and drinks were great. Our waitress was very attentive. I wasn't too sure about booking after some of the reviews I had read but honestly the food was very tasty. Best food I had eaten in Rio. I will definitely come back on my return to Rio.

Mee is a place proposing a combination of Asian Fusion dishes and the freshest sushi bar in town with the finest sushi you can find in Rio. It has an interesting proposal of flavors - you should definitely try the foie gras scallop with toro nagiri as it's a hot & cold explosion in your mouth. Would repeat this restaurant... More

I don't want to rate their food, as a lot has been said already. But seriously, go there to have a cocktail and you won't be disappointed. They are to die for! I've been there two years ago and I still can't forget that flavor. Plus for a beautiful decor.

When booking we asked for 8.30pm and were told 7.30pm or 9.30p - we want for 7.30pm yet when we arrived the restaurant was only a third full - why do people who take bookings act this way? Because they have been told to in order to make the kitchen's life more convenient I suppose! The room was totally enclosed... 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.
