Went to the Estancia on our last night in Austin, as we did on our last visit to holiday with family. As before the atmosphere was electric, with the waiters and management meeting customers and showing them to their tables. Restaurant was buzzing with people with plenty of space and tables for all. Once seated, (5 persons) we were being... More

We joined our son for an early dinner here. The salad bar was wonderful and included hearts of palm, various salads--green and pasta. The gauchos who serve the meat at your table were very attentive and I soon had to turn my little card to refuse any more meat until I could enjoy what was on my plate. John Aguilar,... More

We had been to the old location in Sunset Valley some time ago and finally got around to visiting the new spot in the Arboretum. While being generally pleased at the old space, Estancia has really stepped up their game at the Arboretum. The salad bar is just tremendous. The only crime is that you really need to hold back...

Located with the Arboretum is this high-quality Brazilian steak house. Be sure you come hungry, because you won’t leave that way. Of course there are other entries you can get, but the best fun is being able to sample all the various types of meats available. You’ll start out with the large salad bar, but the recommendation I got on... More

This place is amazing. The service is exceptional, there a multitude of people waiting on you constantly and preemptively, all the staff are great, pleasant, efficient and knowledgable. The food was amazing, the rolls and crispy fried polenta were to die for (we even ordered some of the rolls to go). The salad bar is very fresh, varied, unique and... More

This restaurant has amazing food and even better service! I've been to several Brazilian restaurants, but this was superior to all of them. Their salad bar is excellent, I loved the smoked salmon with a basil sauce. All of the meats for delicious and perfectly cooked. The drinks were delicious as well. Some servers even escorted us to our car... More

We really enjoy this restaurant, having been there several times now. The salad bar is one of the best we have found to date. The meats are very good and fresh as you only choose what you want when you want using the "coin" you use to "stop" or "go" for service from the Gauchos walking around with the different... More
