Boi Preto started well and was a good alternative for good buffet and rodizio. However quality of the rodizio has been deteriorating (meats hard and little taste) and service could improve. For current price (appr 36 USD pp) you can eat better rodizio in Miami.

With a group of three we dined at all the three highly recommended Rodizio Restaurants in Salvador, Boi Preto, Fogo de Chao and Sal E Brasa. Boi Preto has in my opinion the best tasting meat of the three above mentioned Rodizio restaurants. Picanha, Fraldinha and Filet Mignon were very tasteful. Salad bar is extensive and fresh. Best selection of... More

A classic churrascaria, provided with tasteful cuts of beef, pork and goat. The buffet is varied and rich but nothing really special, while the sweet trolley is not very inspiring. A safe choice and large portion for meat lovers, but that's it.

Great salad bar with everything from seafood to unusual white asparagus and egg plant. The meat is just great and "on demand" Only problem is that Otis all so good you tend to eat more than is required. Desert was great as was the 43 digestive.

Oh my! Boi Preto is an amazing all-you-can-eat restaurant and churrascaria. It has the best barbecue in the city and an amazing buffet. Their service was perfect. The only down point is that R$110,00 is very expensive just for the food.

The ambience is nice, and the staff, corteous and mostly all English-speaking. The meats are delicious, but the highlight is the salad bar, with plenty of seafood options. It is quite pricy, though. Make sure to make it worth your while.
