Relaxed poolside dining
Set against the backdrop of the famous swimming pool at the Copacabana Palace hotel, Pérgula represents a study in laidback–but still excellent–dining. During the week, substantial sandwiches and salads, as well as an interesting, unique mix of starters, make up the menu for light meals. Though you wouldn’t come here for dinner if you were starving, it’s an excellent place to fill in the gaps before going out to a later evening meal.
The best brunch you’ll ever have
The real draw of Pérgula is the all-you-can-eat buffet brunch offered on Sundays, complete with seafood, caviars, breads, salads, and a bottomless glass of prosecco, making it perhaps the most luxurious brunch you’ll ever experience. The atmosphere remains relaxed and friendly throughout the sitting. For food lovers, this is one of the experiences you can’t afford to miss while you’re staying in Rio–you’ll be telling people about it for years.
