This restaurant serves a variety of rodízio options and we have enjoyed every portion brought to our table. Waiters are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. It's a very nice place for gaúcho cuisine.

Costelao Gaucho follows the typical Rodizio concept - all you can eat, with a large buffet and different cuts of meat, cut from skewers on to your plate. For what you can potentially eat, prices are very moderate - max. EUR 19 per person. To get the best value from your money, pace yourself. Don't eat too much form the... More

The waiters were keeping on coming with different meats (and... More

We went there with some Brazilian friends, who assured us that it was the best rodizio in Lisboa. We are not sure about that: it was good, but the meat sometimes was salty and fat. Friendly fast service.

It was buzzing when we ate there the first night of our 4 night stay in Lisbon and we enjoyed it so much we went back for lunch on our last day. The staff were great, friendly and attentive explaining all the... More
