By the weight-on-the-plate (por kilo) restaurant. The food is all put out for self-service on a hot table, with lots of gooey sauce. There are salads as well. You'll go away full, but probably not satisfied, if you take enough.

Puddings and coffee are served ant their price is also added to the token. When you have finished, you... More

Self service by weight restaurant. Food, at least for dinner, is mediocre and there are better and cheaper options in Rio for food by weight.

Aipo & Aipim never fails. Great place for lunch or early dinner. Buffet with fruits, salads, vegetables, meats, fish, stews etc. Something for everyone. Great concept: receive coupon when entering, grab a plate, collect your cravings from buffet and grill-chef, weigh food and get drinks, eat & drink, deliver coupon at register, pay and give coupon to lady at the...

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place. It was just down the block from where we were staying. It's self serve and is weighed. The price is $5.49R per 100 grams so you can feed yourself for a good price. Lots of selection! Meats, fruits, veggies, potatoes, desserts and more! Food was always fresh and delicious and the service... 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.
