This iraqi restaurant in the heart of Copacabana (judging by the name and the flag on the walls) serves great middle-eastern food. I have visited many times over the last couple of years and I am yet to be disappointed. I like their sandwiches – both the shawarma and the kafta – which are served rolled in pita bread with...

A long way from the Middle East but Baghdad delivers on Shisha! Close to Copacabana with lots of other lively venues in close proximity.

Me and my friend found this place by accident while walking around in the Copacabana area to find a decent place to eat. The food was OK but the owner was friendly and spoke decent english as we didn't speak any Portuguese. There was a belly dancer there that night and she was not bad. The best part about the... More

I found this place some time ago whilst looking for a place to get a kebab in rio. Went for the first time tonight. It was great, as close to the real thing (I liced in the Middle East for 8 years) as you are going to get in brazil and (I'm surprised to say) better than anything you can... More

Best thing about it was the decor. The Arabic music playing was a nice touch to the atmosphere. Quite a selection of food to choose from. However the food itself was a 6/10. It just didn't hit the spot in the right way.

The restaurant was opened in 2006, the year my husband and I met. In early 2007 we found it by accident. Since then, every time we are in Brazil we have to go there, at least once, with friends and family. It's a cosy place, with very good food and belly dance. Recommended!

we had the meze taster dish for 2-3 which was about €30 plus wine at €40. Was OK but you need a taboule salad as the food is a bit dry. Friday's and Saturdays there is a belly dancer. Indifferent staff even with the belly dancer around!

Restaurant owned by an Iraqi. Food is good, especially try their drinks ................ They are sweeeeeeeeet. Ambiance is ok, somewhat tight space. Price slightly on higher side but this is Copacabana, what else would you expect. Overall, a good option for variety in Copacabana. Above all, its Halal !!!

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.
