Skylab offers a chic and pleasant atmosphere. The service is very good and the waiters are very helpful. The food served was delicious!! The only bad thing were the elevators that took us to the top floor, where the restaurant is located. It took a long time for it to arrive and the other was out of order, but the... More

For a restaurant with an uninspiring menu including lots of steak, it was very disappointing that two steaks had to be sent back because they had mixed up the orders, and then when they returned the medium-rare was rare at best, and the medium-well was medium/medium-rare. The 'Angus' steak was a very poor cut full of fat and gristle -... More

I have been wearing to try Skylab since I read at Veja magazine a good review of the restaurant. Prior to booking my table, I was told by the receptions is that they had a strict dress code and no shorts, flip flops or Bermudas allowed. I was actually thrilled. Dressing up in Rio at 32C summer evening is a... More

Appetizers were delightful, view was great, food was atrocious. Not worth it. There are many more places owned by locals far more deserving of your dollars.

We had a lovely dinner here on our first night in Rio. We were seated next to the window. Service was very good apart from a wait for our bill. Our chateaubriand was perfect. We thought the price was reasonable for what we had. The drinks were very nice (some of the caipirinhia's were cheaper then the lobby bar). There... More

I had the fish with black rice as I was told this was their best plate. Unfortunately the fish was not fresh. I hope they invest more on their cousine. This goes as a suggestion to management as the service is good and the view is amazing.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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.
