We had one of our best bacalhau ever in this small and cozy restaurant with very cordial and correct service. The price of bacalhau Gomes de Sá was 165 R$ but the portion was big and we could have shared in three.

We have just had a very good meal at this restaurant - sardines, fish moqueca, and coffee. The sardines were delicious and the moqueqa was one of the best we have had. Very good service too, patient, friendly and helpful. We can recommend this spot.

We enjoyed our meal at Alfaia which was fresh, served by a friendly staff and included very generous portions. However, it is very expensive. You can get a better value at other restaurants.

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
