We had some Tapas in advance and after it a main course. Food was delicious and ambience is great. Service could be a little bit more professional but all in all we really liked this restaurant.

The restaurant was almost full but had table for a single visitor. Didn't have all beers at the menu but very good food. The service was also good. They came also offering tapas some times during the visit.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
