Words are not enough to describe this restaurant - outstanding. The variety of food is great, and all of the products meet top quality standards.

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

Great place to eat and worth the effort even though we were staying in the old town. A typical Brazilian style restaurant bringing the cuts of meat to your table. Try to minimise eating the salads etc so you have plenty of appetite for the meat.We were in Salvador 2 nights and ate their both nights.

Boi Preto is not only a Brazilian Churrascaria. We can eat also good variety of fish, salads, tipical dishes, international dishes and a wonderful Carne de Sol from Bahia.

I believe that it's a typical steak Brazilian restaurant. All the meat were excellent. The waiters were passing through again and again with delicious meats. The buffet had a great variety also if sea food, sushi and salads. The dessert I tasted was also nice. I don' t know exactly the price, but it was about 40 euros. For all... More

I had a friend take me here and stated the food was crazy good as well as the upscale experience. Wow ... so good. This is the real deal when in the area for traditional food. Exotic meats and absolutely huge selection of different dishes. Cognac was really a nice finish to the 3 hour affair or experience I should... More
