Tip #1: Enjoy the Salad Bar and Buffet items, but keep in mind that the meat is the star of the show! Tip #2: Try... More

The food was excellent and the selection of meats was great. Matches the steakhouses I've eaten at in Brazil. The service was great. Vladimir really took care of us. Thanks for the pineapple roasted with cinnamon and sugar. Delicious
