I was in Rio about 12 years ago and happened to bump in this small little restaurant. I remember it had just opened the owner barely could speak Portuguese but I remember the scents and the flavours... I returned to Rio over 50 times since this first visit but since I did not take a business card could never remember the name nor the location... This weekend we went to Rio again and accidentally bumped in this place again! I was really happy and felt the same cozy sensation to return to my grandma's place. The place IS small, IS not chic and IS not brand new, but the food was comfy and the owner and chef keep presenting us real delicacies. The best of all, despite being in Copacabana it's a very fair price and you will have a great meal without leaving your clothes behind!

Very friendly staff, speak English as well. Food was tasty! Large menu, great deserts. And the shisha is a bonus! Costs 35 real and they change the coals etc. You sit outside for the shisha, but that gives it a nice touch, and you can sit dry if it rains. Recommended!

Went here due to a very welcoming man outside the restaurant drawing people in. That said, all the staff were very friendly and spoke very good English (which is extremely helpful!)
The food was delicious and very well priced too. If you go before 6pm, you can get a big shwarma wrap, chips and drink for only 20 Real, which is less than £5! The quality of meat is great and portions are decent.
Overall, very enjoyable meal and would definitely recommend if staying in Copacabana.
