Good but non sensational

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.

This restaurant calls itself a Grill but it is a traditional churascaria with all that that entails. Mostly you have to pace yourself because you can fill up pretty quickly if you take a lot from the salad/fish/sushi choices at the salad bar and then continue with big slices of delicious meat from the roving servers carrying large spits with...

The biggest difference between this and Fogo de Chao was the salad bar. The salad bar here had sushi, and large prawns in their seafood rice in addition to many seafood salads. By comparison, the salad bar at Fogo de Chao was pretty basic. Meat quality was about the same as was the cost. This is a little bit further... More
