This is an authentic Brazilian barbecue. They have everything. Sea food, amazing steaks, sushi, deserts. The oysters are fresh. The ribs are delicious. It's my duty come here every time. They also have food festivals, like amazon fishes, lobsters festival. Everyone is polite. I strongly suggest this place for lunch and right after you finish your meal, you can take... More

Vast array of hot and cold food with sushi, vegetables, meats, fish, rice, etc.... The fresh cut meat directly onto your plate at the table is a cool experience and includes a wide array, a little expensive but HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT!

Went for a Friday lunch... salad bar smaller than say a Fogo do Chao, but the quality of the meat and fish was simply outstanding. Great service. A local, non touristy feel. Wine menu and selection very good indeed . Great location just, one block back from the beach next to the Copacabana Palace.

Out of this world! Particularly for someone who is not use to the rodizio! The meat was cooked to perfection and the service was flawless! Would highly recommend for any meat/seafood lover!

Solid place, quite competent and fast staff. Nice interieur, tables a bit too tight and a bit loud for a dinner conversation. Good buffet and meat, not outstanding. As an aside: the huge TV screen with a mix of Shrek and soccer etc felt out of place. A bit expensive for my first night in Brazil.

Unbelievable restaurant to try many different cuts of meat. Fabulous salad bar and freshly made sushi to start but be warned DO NOT eat too much as there is so much meat to come. Steaks in all cuts and lamb brought too your table where a small slice is carved on to your plate. Everything was tender and juicy and... More

I had the pleasure of dining here after having it recommended to me by an experienced and very world-wise flight crew. The service was exceptionally friendly and the waiters were happy to pose with photos of the meat, which consisted of the large skewers you would expect, but also with large slabs of ribs which are wheeled around on a...

It was my first day in Rio and I decided to come here after reading good reviews and I'm glad I did. The salad bar was great, the food was amazing and all in all, excellent service. Would definitely go there again if I'm around!

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.
