Great Brazilian meats and great service!

Meat, meat and....more meat. And, did I mention also meats? Very good quality and variety, all on the traditional Brazilian charcoal grill. Not to mention roasted cheese balls and great salad bar. I will go back for sure!

Highly recommend giving Fogo de Chao a try. Traditional Brazilian dinner with the steady stream of meat. While one would expect fantastic meats, the salad bar provided great diversity - roasted eggplant, sun dried tomatoes, grilled red peppers, salad (of course), asparagus, etc. The wine selection was also very good. The Chilean Indomita Pinot Noir was fantastic.

Very friendly service and we managed with only limited Portuguese as some of the waiters spoke good English. A great salad buffet with a plenty of choice .....and then as much meat as you can eat....all delicious and freshly grilled...difficult to know when to say stop!

Our local hosts took us (foreigners) for an introduction to churrasco. We all find it an interesting way of dining and more importantly the meat was superbly barbequed. The ambiance and setting was excellent, as was the selection of food in the buffet. A good time was had by all.

You can't find better meat restaurant in Brasilia. Not cheap but you definitely get what you paid for. Good staff and very nice quality 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 side, red on the other.... 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.
