I think this has to be the best chicken, tried other places in Rio but none compared to this one. Very juicy and great flavor. The meat was amazing too! Cool atmosphere with the locals in this little place.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our guide as a great place to have chicken cooked over charcoal. The name even suggests chicken should be their speciality. I don't know if it was a bad day or not but the chicken was definitely not...More

Great garlic bread but chicken was a disappointment as it was overlooked and dry. Good cachaca collection and great atmosphere. Very local 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

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
