Been here during a weekend in Rio. The restaurant is placed 5 minutes walking from Ipanema Beach. We took a table outside and we order picanha. The meat was good but the place is a bit too noisy and touristic. It is just okay.

We've made a reservation to be sure to get a table. Big mistake! There was one group of guys, totally drunk and wasted and making so much noise that we decided to leave. Restaurant was totally empty. From the corner of the street you could still hear these way too loud and too drunk customers screaming and singing.

Speculative visit. Enjoyed the special (sirloin joint thinly sliced served on a V hot griddle allowing self cooking) so much we went again 2 nights later. Great beef cooked how we prefer. What's not to love?

This is a nice, traditional restaurant on the Copacabana beach. It lacks the ambience of the famous related, Garota de Ipanema, but it has a similar menu, including my favorite, the picanha steaks cooked on a small grill at your table.

We overdid the portions on our first day here, each ordering a main course that would have fed 2-3 people. Lesson learned. The food was good, the waiting staff nice if a little shambolic, and we were treated to a wandering band of minstrels creating merriment for a few minues.

Everyone is very friendly & helpful here, which is very useful considering that not a lot of English is spoken & our Portuguese is basically limited to hello & thank you! The menu has descriptions in English as well as Portuguese, so there's no problem when ordering. The portion sizes are huge! So you may be wise to share! The... More

We all ordered Galeto which is a kind of smaller chicken, we ordered it with hot sauce but it was not that hot as they had promised. We had mashed potato and rice with cheese which was ok but I wouldn't recommend the vegetables, not tasty at all

The dinner out with my wife at this restaurant was really unbelievable. We ordered Grilled fish and another dish of seafood. The waiter was local and to establish basic communication and to order the food was a bit difficult. Then show started: the waiter brought the food but the table was quite small to put all the items and appetizers...... 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.
