The service is second to none. 5 star. The varied meat selection was delicious...juicy..perfectly seasoned. Buffet selection perfect. Expensive? Not really..our meal for 2 with wine was120 USD. We would pay double that anywhere in the USA..triple in NYC. For such a large restaurant..the service made you feel like you were at the finest restaurant in the world

The price is a little high, but the food is fantastic, so you are paying for what you have taken. You can find virtually anything you want on their buffet: sea food, Japanese, different cheeses and of course a wide variety of salads. It is really great. Even if don't eat meat I recommend you to go there. The service... More

I know it is expensive, but, at Boi Preto you find the perfect combination of meat, environment and service. Besides the meat, they also serve a very nice buffet of international food and a fantastic "pastel de carne" as a starter. Best all you can eat barbecue by far in Salvador.

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant last night. The food was excellent, but then I expected that, however the service was very impressive. The servers were in great abundance and extremely attentive. The food kept coming at a good pace, but the wait staff quietly and constantly kept our table clean and our water and wine glasses filled.

I visited on a Monday evening in July when it was pretty quiet apart from a large business party. The space is cavernous and doesn't provide any intimacy, although this seems to be a feature of many large restaurants in Salvador. I last visited in 2007 and the standard is the same. The buffet is extraordinary and in my opinion... More

I was told that this was the best grill but what a disappointment! I ordered picanha "medium done" but I was served overcooked. Salad was not very fresh. ... and this restaurant is very, very expensive.

We visited on a Sunday night with only a few other guests so the staff was very attentive. Some of the meats were a bit too well done, likely since the crowd was small. Overall very good salad bar and meat selection.

The restaurant is very good. There is a huge variarity of food in the buffet and lots of kind of meat. The bbq is awesome and the waiters are very kind and provide a good service. But if you want to go there, go with no regrets of spending money.

It is a very nice restaurant, beautiful environment and the staff is really good, polite and friendly like everyone in Bahia. Food is good (nice and variety on the buffet of salads. Japanese with sushi and sashimi mostly) and you can eat salad, chicken, fish and Japanese if you dont eat red meat. However, if you go on a weekend... More
