On the lat evening I had to try Feijoada. This place has a very rich dish, fast service and nice large space. Did the job. Didn't try any of the expensive French dishes on the menu. The Feijoada was quite good and very reasonably priced.

I had lunch twice at this restaurant during my stay in Rio. The food was good, I had fish, vegetables, and rice. The service was very fast which was convenient for my work schedule.

It was founded in 1949 and the food is great since then. Everyone will find something to eat: steaks, fish, shrimps, squids, cod fish are all excellent. Most of the waiters are old and efficient.

Best possible service, attention all the time. Traditional Brazilian food, many local guest. A wonder that so few tourists visits the place. Maximum value for money. Recommended!

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
