Very nice meat, I go there often. Good place for lunch since its easy to eat to much. Its never good to go to sleep to full. After lunch here its always time for a siesta. Very nice Caipirinhas.

We ate here in July with friends, a week or so after eating at Carnivore. The experience was excellent, the meat far superior to Carnivore and really juicy. You get a little overwhelmed quite quickly, but - again better than Carnivore - the salad and veg counter gives you a bit of balance with your meat and the grilled cinamon... More

I only went there, because our group could not get seats at Carnivore. But this was a great experience. I did not get the chance to try the salads and side dishes, - simply because the meat was of so good quality. Especially some of the beef cuts were extremely tender and rare. I was a bit disappointed by the... More

I have a weak spot for Brazilian Steakhouses and I have visited Fogo Gaucho several times. Maybe not as good as some of the Churasscerias I have visited in Brazil but for being in Kenya; It´s great! Value for money, excellent food and service. There is at least one other in Nairobi but Fogo Gauchu is definitely the better one.... More

The food was good...a great salad bar to start with...cheese was ok lil hard may be because of the season.I was slightly dissappointed since there was no soup.But on other accounts... More

Fogo Gaucho almost never disappoints for the meat lovers. I was, however, a little disappointed in the crocodile tail this time as it was not as yummy as times past. Overall, very pleased.

If you like meat (at will) it's a good place to go. You can eat all the meat you want, accompanied with salads and other sides. Some people highly recommended me to go to "The Carnivore" but we couldn't get reservations for the day we wanted to go. However, I was not disappointed with this place. Wines are quite expensive.

Loved the food, particularly if you like meat. Just thought it was a tad expensive, but certainly worth the experience.
