We were there with the whole family for lunch (late afternoon). Place was not busy. Meat was good, and after some slow start we could really get all what we asked. great service. We appreciated also the variety of the sides, and the dessert.

For an all you can eat restaurant, the food was very good, especially the various meat cuts they brought to the table. The selection of entrees as well as desserts is amazing. The food is very good value for money but hold off on the drinks as they are expensive and will add a significant amount to the bill. In... More

We had late lunch here with our tour group. A small restaurant with great food. Our table had eight people and at times the meat selection was gone by the time it made it to the last one of us. The waiters didn't speak English.

The waiters were endless, always ensuring that they came to our table with their different cuts of meat. Selection from the buffet was scrumptious, such great variety of food and the service was impeccable. Costs about $30-40 AUD but it was definitely worth it. Would definitely revisit before we leave Brazil

Stopped in for an early dinner around 5 pm on our last night in Rio.. It was recommended by our hosts. We had the buffet and the various meat options were delivered to our table. The staff seemed to be on break and were sitting at tables in the back getting far better service than us. It was nothing like... More

Was O.K. but we had better Churrascaria in Campinas. The meat was not as tender as it could be and we did pay top dollar for it. The cheese stuffed meat was everyone's favourite

I really loved this place: the service, the meat, the atmosphere and the price! I was here with my girlfriend in April 2016. Amazing experience: high quality meat, good wine (I'm Italian) and correct quality/price (like 60€ churrasco and wine for two people). If you are in Rio de Janeiro I suggest you this amazing place!

Where in Rio for couple of days with friends. We hoped to have a good! Dinner for our last evening at Rio. However, we had our worst dinner in Brazil. The prices are too high, The food was bad, And the worst thing was the staff. Never going there again.

A traditional Brazilian restaurant that we stopped at during our tour. A place we may not have come up with on our own, but good nonetheless. The restaurant had a great selection of food and I was a bit skeptical of the buffet, but selected a few things and was pleasantly surprised. The beef/chicken that was carved at the tables... 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.
