If you are in Rio and starving to death, but running out of time , so you must try one of the tasty sandwiches from here, my favorite is the pork and pineapple one.

Since 1955 this traditional restaurant in Copacabana neighborhood has been serving great sandwiches and cold draft beer "chope" to its customers. My favorite sandwich there is the filet mignon with cheese and pineapple.

Very good food in the restaurant but You will find the ultimate ham sandwich will tast better at the casual bar with a tasty draft beer together with locals. By the way, any of the sandwiches looked just wonderful.

Cervantes is my favourite place in Rio, not just for the emotional attachment of going for so many years but for the consistent quality. If looking for a quick meal that will give you the best glimpse of carioca life, look no further. Bar counter...More

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
