Brazilian dining experience worth every penny. With the world cup fever upon us, there is no better way to soak up the game with all love than by treating yourself to Brazil's delightful cuisine. With the all you can eat option on the table, guests will be spoilt for choice, from their sizzling meats, fresh cocktail juices, salad platters, hot... More

Fogo Gaucho is a must visit for anyone in Nairobi. I was there on a Friday evening with and wasn't sure of what to expect. We were a a team of 14 people and our table had all the delicacies one's appetite could handle. The band was awesome and I was lucky to perform a song with them and the... More

Meat, meat and more meat! The hits keeps on coming! Visited this place during a recent visit to Nairobi. As can be expected at a Churrascaria, the meat keeps on coming till you throw in the towel, but the quality and taste exceeds the expectations. The only negative comment is that the salad bar could be better...some of the salads... More

If you like lots of meat then this is the place to be visiting. Quite a variety of meat and salads. Enjoyed the experience. The waiters here are really good. Take care of you from the time you enter to leaving.

This is way above average for Kenya. The meat is not over-cooked, the service is good and the decor is very attractive. My major criticism is that there is not much to go with the meat. Kenyan restaurants should realise that foreigners are told not to eat salads, as the ingredients are washed in tap water. You could get major... More

We popped into Fogo Gaucho at lunch time to book a table that evening. They were more than happy to serve us our 'breakfast' a cocktail called Dawa (medicine in Swahili) made with honey (third one down on the cocktail list).They slip down very easily, so we kept it to just the one drink for lunch! Fast forward to the... More

Hot sauce or gravy or bbq sauce or anything - but it was just meat, meat, meat. Which got pretty old pretty fast for me. And the... More
