I was there during the World Cup and the service was beyond awful. The food is no different than a Fogo de chao in Houston. But the service awful. They pretended to not get television reception during a game so people would leave sooner so they could turn tables. Their grilled fruit & ice cream dessert was disgusting - how... More

This restaurant is a must for every tourist in Brasilia. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming even though the restaurant is quite big. To start you take a plate and serve yourself from the salad and vegetable buffet. There is a wide range of salads and vegetables that are prepared, cooked, served and presented beautifully. There is something for every... More

Probably the best churrascheria I have ever been. Meat is incredibly tasty and soft and the central buffet is rich and very well presented. Price is high by comparison with other churrascherias but it is well justified by the quality of food and service.

Typical rodizio de churrasco. Many different types of beef but also lamb and pork are proposed. Great buffet too. Service very friendly. Tried a Brazilian wine. Not unforgettable but ok. It is expensive but it is worth the visit.

I am vegetarian, but my husband lives meat. Fogo de Chāo is a great alternative because they offer excellent meat and special price for those who do not eat meat. The caipirinha was a must.

If You like a beaf - this place is not cheap at all, but if You try - it's worth it. Every kind of beaf served is fresh and best of its kind. During busy days - don't forget to reserve a seat in advance! For those who are vegetarian and got there (by mistake;-) - don't worry. You will... More

While it is very expensive (423 reales for 3 people), the food is amazing and you can eat as much as you want- so come hungry! My favorite meat is "picanha". The staff is very friendly and majority speak some English. Fun atmosphere

Fogo de Chão Brasilia Went to a buffet at Fogo de Chao in Brasilia during the World Cup in June 2014. The restaurant was very close to the TV tower and the water fountain in the open plan park. The stadium is also a stone throw away. Make sure you have an almost empty stomach as you will be served... More
