Make sure you're hungry! The buffet salad bar was a pleasant surprise, and would make a great meal on its own. Meat, meat meat!

We celebrated a Birthday here as a family(including seniors & kids). I was a little worried about the price but they were calmed immediately when we saw the value we were getting for our money. We had a wonderful waiter who even bought a shooter for the birthday girl. The buffet part of the restaurant had amazing selection and everyone... More

This is a slightly up-scale all-you-can-eat place. It's quite large and bright inside. We went late at night so some of the buffet options were not at their best, but others were fine. The staff bring around various barbecued meats on skewers, which let us sample. A good place if you're hungry, intend to eat a lot and don't mind... More

Dinner was great!!!!!!! I am a vegetarian and I still had the best meal I've had in a while. The all you can eat salad bar was colourful and delicious. My favourite was the Cucumber and Pineapple. This meal was exceptional. We received really attentive and great service from everyone and besides the small size table we sat at I... More

The lunch was very good. We went for the plated portion option for lunch, as neither of us where starving. The steak was done perfectly, but where they really shine for lunch is the sides bar. They have a range of light fresh salsa and salads as well as Brazilian rice and soups with roasted potatos. For $18 you are... More

Wow! Meat, beautifully cooked, brought to your table until you can't eat any more. Fabulous range of salads, which could be a meal in themselves. Regulars seemed to know to stick to green salad! Did I mention the meat? Don't eat anything the day before, go for brunch and stay as long as you can! Home made 'limonade' (lemonade made... More

BBQ brasilian style, great quantity, acceptable quality... Self-service of salads, chili, soups. Everything ok, but simply ok... Service friendly. We have also taken italian wine: first bottle was clearly gone, but the waiter didn't agree although he replaced the bottle with a new one. Also this second bottle was not good, but we were tired and we decided to avoid... More

We decided to accept the high cost for the experience. However, the ambience was quite cafe and not such that we felt it was special enough to warrant the price. The meats were good, but nothing out-of-the-ordinary. The sirloin was quite tasty, however. It was a good restaurant and if it was $30 - $35pp, I would have been ok...it's... More
