Great waiters, speak English. Ordered the bacalao crocettes, sardines, breaded octopus and moqueca fish. Was all delicious. Only starts to get busy after 9. Had a Chilean white wine- was ok. Certainly would recommend this as a good seafood place.

Lovely evening spent here whilst we see in Rio. Excellent service and welcome without any pretentiousness. The food was small and large in portions according to you needs. Fish cakes and sardines ideal starters, then fish how you like with sauces or grilled to perfection....More

We had one of our best bacalhau ever in this small and cozy restaurant with very cordial and correct service. The price of bacalhau Gomes de Sá was 165 R$ but the portion was big and we could have shared in three.

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
