The food and drinks were really good. Also a notable ambiance. Downside is that it not easily accessible

For $22 you can eat as much salad and meat as you can manage. The self-service salad bar is fresh with lots of options. Waiters come past every other minute with a selection of chicken, beef, pork and crocodile spits from which they shave slices for you. The meat was good. A nice atmosphere as well.

Great service, enough meat and salads to last you a lifetime 😂 No takeaways though, probably a way of managing costs. Great ambience however. Ask my nephew, he agrees 😊

Very good service, friendly staff who are extremely attentive. Buffet was fantastic, BBQ meat served at the table was good but not great, recommend the fillet beef though - they even had crocodile meat which is worth a try.

Its pretty simple. If you have a big appetite and love indulging in meat then you can never go wrong here. I've dined here on 4 occasions and they have never disappointed. The concept is simple - you get there, you order drinks, you proceed to the huge salad bar, you sit, you wait as the brazilian styled waiters come... More

I went to Fogo Gaucho with friends awhile back. It is average as far as restaurants go. As far as Brazilian steak houses? I don't know, because it's not really my thing. But I DO like good food. The meat served was average in my opinion. Nothing special, which, since that's supposed to be the specialty I would expect more.... More

Great location and nice served even i have to wait for lamb and pork longer than variety of beef, for all meat lovers this place must try. Pork & Cheese sausage was lovely, Lamb was very nice and chicken is great too.
