Hotel Bar
$$$
“Ideal balance of great food, service and luxury, chic environment! Pergula is located in Copacabana Palace Hotel and it is the pool bar / restaurant of the hotel. It offers a small variety of dishes that are delicious and very well presented. The service is excellent and the waiters speak English which is rare in Rio. It is a place where you can visit for brunch, lunch or dinner and have a great time sitting by the pool of the hotel. Experimente uma tarde na legendária Pérgula do Copa! Boa comida, serviço e luxo. Ambiente Chic onde celebridades do mundo passaram e passam por lá!”
