A huge and noisy place but with ambiance and good service, quality and wonderful buffet (all you can ear) as well as meat as much as you can eat served on skewers at your table. We enjoy the place mainly for Sunday lunches. Great place also for families to bring kids

I don't eat a lot of meat these days so the Paulista Grill was not a restaurant I would have chosen myself but I went with a large group of people and was happy with the discovery. The buffet was incredible...lots of tasty salads, vegetables, fish, chicken, "make it your way" pasta and sauces. The beef kept coming to our... More

The formula is easy and cheap, and for little less than 15 dollars you get a free go to the meat and the self service of salads, feijoada and whatelse. Fact is, nothing of what is on offer is really good or well prepared... it's just that they seem to bet more on quantity - and you'll get aplenty -... More

Ample variety of side dishes and salads to complement a great rodizio style of beef, lamb and pork cuts......great "churrasco" and wine selection, even the dessert station has great choices. Simple decoration with great service. Must try the "Sopa Paraguaya" which is a mix of corn bread and a muffin.

This is a Churaskeria type restaurant which means that its a grill buffet. You go to a buffet area to get your carbs (salad, pasta, French-fries...) And then waiters come to your table with fresh grilled meet and cut of pieces for you. this is probably the biggest one in Asuncion the meat is EXELENT and the carb table is... More

This restaurant is similar to what is called a Brazilian steakhouse in the U.S. There is a salad and pasta bar with lots of variety and delicious items, but don't fill up too much because the main attraction is the meat. Servers come around with a variety of meats - chicken, fish, ribs, and beef - and serve you at... More

I have to agree with some reviewers. It is not exactly a steakhouse, but I can not find another category for a place which the main dish is meat. As some Brazilian-styled barbecue, you have the "rotation" system (called "rodizio") where the meat rotates through the hall and is served at the tables. You can pick whatever you want and... More

Firstly I would Paulista not call a Steakhouse, it is a Rodisia where meat is on large skewers brought to your table and pieces cut of for you. The quality of the meat is cheap, there are no good cuts, like Filets available at all. The choice on the buffet is good and the choice on the dessert buffee is... More

I enjoyed the meat and the amount of food the place had to offer. I myself didn't know the exact cuts of meat but the people I came with knew what to get. The meats came from rare to well done, mostly tender and moist, a small amount was overcooked (in my opinion) and a little dry, but you could... More
