I've been coming to Baleal for about 6 years now, and never miss an opportunity to go to Gauchão da Picanha. This restaurant is AMAZING. The meat is 100% spot-on, cooked perfectly, awesomely flavored. My favorite dishes here are the steak in pepper sauce & steak in garlic/olive oil. We also tried some Picanha with pineapple that was cooked just... More

If you love meat then this restaurant is for you. Their speciality is the steak on the stone. Brought to your table after a very quick pan fry and having been marinated in this special seasoning you finish off on the hot stone to your personal taste. It's fun and delicious. Choose your own side orders of the usual fries,... More

We were recommended the restaurant by our B&B owner. It is not the most romantic place, but you go there for the steak. Ask for steak on the stone. The cook just click/clacks the meat and then he cut it into slices, you can then just bake the meat as you wish. It was just like the steak melted away... More

We ate here after a recommendation from Lisa at Atlantic Golf Serra d'el-Rei. The first night we went we had the fillet steak cooked on a hot stone at the table. It was outstanding and one of the best ever steaks we had eaten. It was just €32.90 for 2 people and came with boiled rice and chips. The second... More

Being a regular of this place all I can say is go for the picanha and you'll not be disapointed. Good and fast service, nice price range if in a big group.

Reasonable food. Good for groups. Brazilian food. No intimacy. Simple, but "clean" decoration. It's located inside of a camping park...
