A famous late-night after-party beer and snacks between my friends. The owner is a bohemian friendly guy, that keeps the bar open until the last client decide to leave. The portion of food are more than enough and traditional bar food from Rio, being the roasted chicken their speciallity. Also the sausages are a great appetizer.

Great garlic bread but chicken was a disappointment as it was overlooked and dry. Good cachaca collection and great atmosphere. Very local atmosphere.

You can't go wrong with this- always packed - grillstitution! Make no mistake, go for the grilled baby chicken and sides (Arroz Maluco- Crazy Rice)....the gravy from the chicken and sauce have sent many diners to rehab...this stuff is addictive....You will want to go back again and again....Always packed....always a wait....

I could write so much about Galeto Sat S, but it probably won’t be enough. So, just get the barbecued Rotisserie Chicken and oven baked Garlic Bread and you’re good to go. This was perhaps one of the best food experiences in all of Copacabana.

Food in Rio generally disappointing but if you want some delicious charcoal grilled meal this is good fun. Small (almost 'a greasy spoon') but delicious caipirinhas and good service. Ask for black beans to accompany...

Tip of our tour guide from Jeep tours. Real local restaurant with the most amazing baby chicken (Galeto with Orange saus). Definite must do!

You know when you've had chicken that's just too dry and disappointing? Then it's time to go to Galeto e Sat's. Their coal roasted chickens are just the moistest, most juicy, delicious chicken you have ever imagined or dreamed of eating. It's really cheap too - less than US$30 for a couple of chickens and side dishes. It gets busy... More

If you like chicken, the best in Rio without a doubt. Very brazilian place with excellent chicken done in barbecue. Both nature (galeto) or with sauce (galeto sat's) are amazing. And the best surprise was the bill as it was a lot cheaper than we expected. If you like garlic go for the garlic bread! Sooo good!

If you’ve ever wanted to taste Rio, this is the place to come, it’s phenomenal! Loved by locals and sometimes taking an hour just to get in, it’s well worth a visit. I found it by chance when I passed the queues out the door, but when I returned the next day, I was given a table immediately. Everything is... More

We waited an hour for a table (as we went on a Saturday lunchtime along with all the locals). However it was well worth the wait. Despite being the only tourists in the bar we did not feel intimated. In fact one of the bars locals explained to us the process of making cacacha whilst we waited for our meal.... 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.
