The place is very beautiful and the service is very good! There is a good bar for people to have a drink before eating at the restaurant. Also, we can eat with a scenic view of "calçadão de Copacabana".

We ordered filet mignon and grilled salmon. Big portion, good taste and reasonable priced. Service was slow though.

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
