I have visited this restaurant many times for lunch and feel I must write review. It's always really busy at lunch time but somehow you never wait long, excellent service, food very reasonable priced and always great. I usually choose from the lunch specials and it very quick and freshly cooked. Huge portions and great value for money. Make sure... More

Delicate meals you have at home when you are out of home. They focus on simple but good honest food: good quality and good choices. Also fast and good service.

This is the worst place we ate in on our week vacation in rio. The food was boring, and the service terrible. Maybe it would be better if the waiter could speak English. We left as soon as possible.

We had dinner at Dois em Cena last night and the meal greatly exceeded our expectations - super food, reasonable prices. Quite a surprise find at Rio Sul mall.

I am client of 2 em Cena for at least 10 years. After 10 years as a customer, I think unfair not to recommend them, because I always have a good time there.Even living outside of Rio, whenever I am in the city I usually go there and eat one of the dishes and also the incredible dessert: banana crepe...

Staff were fantastic, meat was a little dry but everything tastes great! We ate lunch, it was pretty busy yet our food came out fast with a smile.

This is one of the best restaurants in Rio. I've never had one bad meal there. The price is not overrated and the service is very good!

I was taken to Rest Dois Em Cena by a local who often goes there with his family. We ordered the black beans with steak and French fries. The black beans were seasoned well and the steak was not bad either. The service was prompt and the prices were reasonable for Rio. Yes, I would eat there again..

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
