We made a reservation for a birthday party and it was well worth it. The food was amazing. The staff accommodating and fun. Everyone ended up feeling accepted and excited. I would definitely recommend it!

I've been several times and every time has been really good. The meat is excellent and the service attentive. Only four stars because one time the prawns weren't there!!! We kept asking and asking and not one person had the decency to just tell us there weren't any, they just kept lying that they were coming. The salad bar is... More

What a great spot in Nairobi, it is as if you have been transported to Brazil. Since the Carnivore no longer serves game meat this would have to be a top pick for grilled meat. Get there early as this place fills up and becomes very active by about 745. You will see many large parties a good mix of... More

Having dined in a "Fogo de Chao" in Washington DC, I have to admit I was skeptical about Kenya's ability to replicate the experience. Much to my surprise, this restaurant has an excellent presentation the food and ambiance as first experienced on the American continent. Starting with a well represented local salad bar, we transitioned to slices of selected cuts... More

Laid back atmosphere, very reasonable prices and fantastic cuts of grilled meat. Wash it down with a glass of beer and you have all the ingredients for a guys night out.

Our family, the company I work for have been to Fogo countless times and we NEVER tire. A large choice of salads to choose from, countless cuts of fresh succulent meat. What more can a carnivore ask for? Topped off by friendly Johnny Zanrosso who makes sure he never forgets his regulars. How many times have we sung "Happy Birthday"... More

Great variety of meat and I found it to be pretty authentic. The salad bar isn't that good, but who goes to a churrascaria for greens? They also have a really nice grilled pineapple dessert. Great choice for guys night out.

We went to Fogo Gaucho Steak House again - 5 months after our first visit. The salad bar, meat offering, grilled pineapple for dessert, and the service was all as good as our first visit last November. The crocodile was particularly good - tender and moist. The prime rib was the clear winner though - for all 4 of us.... More
