Six months later and I'm still sweating meat...

I was saying at the hotel opposite so I couldn't resist the churrasco experience. However, I hit the restaurant just as it opened and so was the only diner. Given that even when it's full the service is attentive and non-stop, you can imagine how my service was. You're given a card - green one... read more

There is such a wide variety of different things in there, that your Head spins! Even meat lovers would probably spend the next day not eating any meat. But the meat is marinated and has many so many spices. Plus if you eat too much of that really good Filet Mignion or Picana, you might end up with a stomach... More

Superb service, great atmosphere, and incredible food. Constant attention with a never ending variation of bbq meats of the highest standard. Wonderful to spend a quick business lunch or a longer social evening with great Brazilian hospitality. My first time and experience and one I look forward to again.

The salad bar itself was fantastic. Many choices so that a salad bar alone would be an excellent meal by itself. We had a bottle of red wine and then tasted the many meat choices. The seasoning were perfect and the only downside was I wish I could have eaten more.

Fogo the Chão (translating: fire at the ground) will never disappoint you. Meat served at perfection. The staff of all "Fogo de Chão", including those in USA, are carefully selected and trained among people from the Brazilian most famous state for churrasco - Rio Grande do Sul. You will pay around US$ 45.00 per person, buffet included, different kind of... More

I ate in several churascaria type restaurants in Brasilia and Sao Paulo. This was the best. The food was excellent, the service equally so. The wine cellar looked wonderful (unfortunately, no chance to sample it...) and even the beer menu had a huge choice of European and Brazilian beers (which are the equal of the Euro beers). It is expensive,... More

A good and traditional restaurant. Typical service with different cuts of meat and sausage. A nice starter buffet. Not cheap, though.

Churresceria gone gourmet, great food, very cool beer selection! Pretty busy, many business people there, but still friendly and relaxed. Def points for food and drinks!

Let the meat flow. The staff is helpful and you just can't stop having one more bit of this one and the other one.

Well, you come here if you love meat. And in a party of 6, we all enjoyed the meat, as well as the salad bar, and the alcohol. The service was good; the waiters listened to us, trying to accommodate each and every one desire for the meat. Well recommended to the visitors in Brasilia. Uri
