Bar da Dona Onça

Gourmet watering hole in Niemeyer's Copan building

Mauro Holanda
Inside Bar da Dona Onça

Don’t be misled by the ‘bar’ in the name – this classic Centro destination is as much restaurant as watering hole, and its extensive menu, including pasta and meat dishes, draws crowds for both lunch and dinner. It’s well worth a visit even if it’s only to suss out the location, tucked in on the ground floor of Niemeyer’s iconic Copan building, and within walking distance of many of the city’s historic sights.

Inside, tongue-in-cheek leopard-print decor and wood panelling lend a cosy charm. Don’t miss the cashew caipivodka, or one of the delicious sharing dishes like the aptly named croc milanesa – a sensationally crunchy beef schnitzel sliced up for sharing.
