Very good! Food, location, ambience etc is great. Service could be better but is understandable considering the aforementioned. Will continue to return.

We stopped here because it had lovely outside, second floor, seating. The bloody Mary was boring and lacked alcohol. The ceviche was very different, unlike any other I've had.

Loved the idea of being above the market. The menu was sparse and simple. We both had a salad which was very simple. Thank goodness for the bread and great iced tea. Other than that probably would not return.

On a sunny day, this is a great little place to eat outside with a view of the Pike Place Market. The food was fine...my salad would have been better with something other than iceberg lettuce. But, our wine was pleasant and the staff was friendly.

Grabbed a bite to eat and glass of wine on the Copacabana Cafe Deck. Fantastic view of the market and food was very good too. Had the Mariscos Salad (small portion was just perfect) with homemade bread served warm. Beautiful, clear and warm day in Seattle so sitting with the umbrella to block the direct sun was great. Wonderful service... More

This is right across the street from the main Pike Place Market shops and is located on the second floor above the street. We escaped the crowded market and street and got a nice round table under a big umbrella on a nice summer afternoon for a beer and snack. We ordered a couple of tasty Mexican appetizers. A great...

Up a spiral staircase overlooking parts of the market. A lovely balcony area. The staff were very friendly. Good menu selection but didn't have the dish my husband wanted. Food was good and so was the service.

Marvelous view. Friendly staff. I love their Paella. I would recommend for adults only or at least teens with discerning tastes. The view is the 5 star here.
