I'm from Rio, but I have not lived in this city for a long time. The cafe 18 do Forte reminded me of RJ: beauty, simplicity and sophistication together. The view of Copacabana beach, the attentive service, good coffee and the sea hitting the rocks....More

Great place to stop for a snack in the fort with a great view over the Copacabana. It's located at the end of the main road into the fort and outside tables are in the shade of trees making it a lovely place to relax.

price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
