Visited as a party of six. Great table and great atmosphere. The menu is extensive with wonderful meat and seafood options. The wine is well priced for the area. The service was attentive without being overly pushy. A good place for a dinner with atmosphere.

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

price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
