We found the restaurant by accident and it was not far from our hotel. No English speaking waitresses, but very big portions. Meat/chicken quality is good, well grilled and spicy. Inside there are about 10 tables near each other. Nice for a quick lunch.

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.

I ate at Galeto Sal tonight. There was a wait for tables; since I was dining alone, I ate at the counter and interacted with the grill master. The place is known for chicken, cooked over charcoal, but also serves grilled beef and sausage. I...More

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
