I was there with some friends for a buffet and meat dinner. the quality of the meat was good but the buffet probably too short, the only thing that they should take more care is the dessert

Fantastic place in Abu Dhabi, with meat cuts that always make us want to come back. Have been to this place more than once and the food has been consistently excellent. Special call to Victor who on our last visit made it a very memorable one and was always very attentive, even when one of our friends liked her cuts... More

Restaurant is very good. Location is very convenient in Intercontinental Hotel right next to famous Cornich road. It is mainly a meat heaven kind of restaurant so dont expect much other than meat. Service is good, restaurant is very clean and well decorated. Kind of over priced but I believe this is normal for a 5* meat restaurant. My comment... More

Of you love your meat then you have to come here, over 15 different cuts of meat you will be in meat heaven plus a good salad bar, but who wants to eat salad.... Would highly recommend if you like meat

Visited this Brazilian restaurant on Valentine's day eve when they had arranged a special valentines dinner, too meaty. Meat keeps coming and coming to your table non stop until you throw the towel. Only problem was that meat was cooked rare in most cases. The show was nice, but the place where they position the band is not good.

We were very impressed with the choice of food available. We have been to a couple of places like this before and this was the first one we have seen include dessert. You also get sides on your table. For a meat lover it is a must visit. We used our Entertainer Vouchers, I wouldn't have gone if it was... More

Well worth a visit for the quality of the meat and salad. It is not cheap, but a fun place to visit. Having been to Brazil on a few occasions, I think this is quite authentic.

I went there Monday evening, the place and the ambience is so good, they have a live band with Latin tunes, the service was so good and it's a shame I cant remember the name of our waiter. The only thing I really didn't like is supposed to be a meat flow any time you want including lamb, duck, chicken... More
