“Amir Restaurant”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

One of the very few places in the south zone of Rio de Janeiro to eat real arab food. If you need just a snack, try another one in Copacabana at Galeria Menescal, also a Historical Site in Rio.

“Good food”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Good food, but i am actually not into that kind of food....
But the people who work there are very atentious and caring.

“Easy great meal in Copacabana”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

This is a very nice little Lebanese place in the heart of Copacabana. Plenty of outdoor seating, great service, and great food. We had a combination platter and the lamb kebob for a party of five. The kibbeh is awesome, grape leaves were excellent. Everything else was good with the exception of the shawarma, which was poor -- overcooked and a bit sour.

If you are tired of Brazilian, and you want to chill with something low key, this could be the ticket.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

We had lunch as the various Middle East style dishes were all very good and somewhat exotic when it came to food combination.
Good size portions and great service in an relax atmosphere.
Nice to get a little bit away from the beach itself.
Recommended.

“Good food - poor service!”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

The food here was ok, the portions were massive, however the service was absolutely appalling and I personally would not go back because of this. A quick bite to eat turned out to be a 2hr meal.

The atmosphere was ok, the place is desparate need of renovation!

Only upside to this evening was that it was a cheap meal!!!
