Great place to stop for a snack in the fort with a great view over the Copacabana. It's located at the end of the main road into the fort and outside tables are in the shade of trees making it a lovely place to relax.

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
