We popped to the top of the Othon hotel to grab a drink and enjoy the view. I was pleased to see that the drinks weren’t any pricier than any of the other bars around. A good view and thankfully some cover for when it rained!

The view from the 30th storey was very good, unfortunately the service is not, I am unable to comment on the food as after 2.5 hrs I left the restaurant. Fawlty Towers has nothing on this lot.

Kind of pricey, but worth it. The salad and dessert bar completes the meal. The service is good but unhurried. Plan on a slow relaxing meal with a great view of Copacabana.

We were a group of 20+ and seated at three tables. We did not get the view as this had been reserved for smaller parties. Service was terrible. We waited more than two hours before receiving starters and one person on our table did not get hers at the same time as the others. One person who had not ordered a starter did not receive a main until we had been there for three hours yet a group of four from our party who sat apart had reached dessert/ coffee before the rest had been served starters. The food when it did arrive was quite good but the service was appalling and the lady hostess did nothing to help. Would never recommend or eat there again.

Went in a pre-booked group of 20. After 2 hours wait food arrived for some, much of it wrong, steak eventually arrived completely overcooked whatever the order. Some people didn’t get any food at all. Nice view of Copacabana beach.
