There are better "kilo restaurants" for salads and there are cheaper (and more expensive) ones. But I really enjoyed three meals I have had here over two visit to Rio. Every time the beef is so juicy and tasty.

Not a fancy all-the-types-of-meat barbecue place, but affordable and nice food. We paid 18,90 per person for eat as much as you like + drinks. Service is horrible, but the food is ok.

We went to this restaurant twice and didn't let us down. We choose the free buffet option and for the price you pay, you have a lot of options and reasonable quality! The barbecue did not have much, but was nice (so was the guy over there) Prepare yourself for the pricy drinks (5,50rs for a coke) This restaurant is... More

Recently I lunched at this restaurant on the Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana. The sign advertised unlimited buffet for 18 reals, quite reasonable, as most buffets here charge by weight of the food, But--there's a catch! There's an area of dessert buffet right next to the regular foods (meat, fish, vegetables, etc.), and when I put a few dessert items... More

Had dinner here during the week. The promotion was appealing - buffet all-you-can-eat for 18 reals without churrasco and 28 reals if you take. We have chosen the 1st option. In the buffet you have a decent choice of meat and side-dishes. Service is nice. Some cleaning and arrangements would be nice, cause the walls and tables are not in... More

This is a place that has a small buffet where the chicken dishes are the best option, because they use the same chicken recipe for the chicken salad, the pie, and the pancakes. The salads are not great and there isn't a good variety. My husband does not eat dairy and meat and there wasn't too much else he could... More

It s a restaurant that has lots of options for you to choose from a buffet : pastas, rice, meats, chickens, salads and so on and you pay for the weight of your plate. So if you don t eat too much, you will pay cheap for your food. But there isn t nothing very well done or fantastic, it... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
