On a nice day, you can't beat the view at Copacabana. The tables overlook Pike Place Market and if you look beyond, you can see Puget Sound. The menu is a bit weird...when we were there they told us that everything on the menu would take 30-45 minutes and the only things available were 3 Mexican dishes....? The sangria was... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 20 years. It is simple, tasty, not terrible expensive, homey, and consistently good. Sweet wait staff.

We were wandering one of the back alley that is the Pike Place Public Market. We wanted something different, and a warm place to sit. Copacabana, Spanish food! Never ate there, so up the stairs (there is a steel spiral staircase at the south side and a standard one in the alley). The outside seating looked too good to pass... More

Bolivian restaurant in Seattle. This was a little different from the regular Pikes Market restaurants. The service was good and the food excellent. Quaint upstairs restaurant. I had the paella and it was great. Definitely recommended for something a little different.

We stopped here because it had lovely outside, second floor, seating. The bloody Mary was boring and lacked alcohol. The ceviche was very different, unlike any other I've had.

Loved the idea of being above the market. The menu was sparse and simple. We both had a salad which was very simple. Thank goodness for the bread and great iced tea. Other than that probably would not return.

On a sunny day, this is a great little place to eat outside with a view of the Pike Place Market. The food was fine...my salad would have been better with something other than iceberg lettuce. But, our wine was pleasant and the staff was friendly.
