Poor food, bad salads. Not for food lovers but food stuffers. Even though it was all you can eat, I left after the first plate. The meat was ok, but the side dishes were not nice. They did not even get the pico de gallo right.

Here you can find an excellent and tasty meat. There are several types of meat (beef, pork and chicken), and assorted hot dishes with fish and shrimps. It's expensive but you should try. It is located beside the lake, has a beautiful view and a nice balcony.

Sit near the window and you'll perceive what a comfortable city Brasilia really can be with all that water and a breeze. If you're a tourist have a caipirinha, stay away from breads and potatoes. Splurge on all the tasty, salty meats that pass by. Favor, the fraldinha and picanha. Brazilian red wines are also very good.

This was a lunch experience I will remember for a long time. The Porcao is a very large restaurant which has a unique concept of servicing a variety of meats to guests. There is a buffet of salads available but the star is the delicious meats, different cuts of beef, which are served in an abundance. I can only describe... More

This churrascaria has it all, a good view of the lake with a balcony to have drinks before dinner, good service, excellent wine list (ask to visit the adega), an enormous kitchen(truly impressive when the chefe gave us a tour), an extensive hot and cold buffet, with sushi and cheeses and entrees, plus of course the sizzling meat on the...

It was once a famous "churrascaria" in Brasília, but clearly its fame has "raised to its head". It's way too pricey for what it offers, which is a hugely varied buffet with just average meat quality. Very loud room, with puffed-up customers (from the old times...). If want to taste a proper, typical Brazilian "churrasco" (barbecue), try the "Fogo de... More

What a contrast. After eating the day before at Fogo de Chao, my Partners decided to eat at this place today. Bad choice. If you have a perfect taste and love good Food, never let others choose where to go out for eating. Buffet had a lot of things to offer. The cooked fished smelled in such way that you... More

Good service, excellent meat selection, but, in my opinion, you have to be a meat lover to fully enjoy the experience. My advice is to order lemon water, which helps with digestion and not to load up on the meats that are served at first - wait for better cuts that are offered in the middle of service. While the...

Good service and food but over priced. Like to cone back once a year. Choose your favorite meat and try a new cut.

There are many great steakhouses, but Porcão is always a reference when it comes to brazilian barbecue.
