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

Like the meat. Side dishes on the table coulb be more diversified and replaced constantly. Like the ambience. Lots of space. Service could be little better...

Is easy to summarize... Brasilian grills are absolutely perfect. Even though I don't like Sao Paulo and Brasilia (find them as really boring cities) I have to admit is the best meat I've ever had and every time I think about this place (or Jardineira Grill in Sao Paulo) I want to be transported there once again. 20 points out...

This was my second visit and I will always dine here when I am in Brasilia. The food is great, the service is excellent. Don't miss this one. If you like Churrascaria you will love this one.

I had never experienced a churrascaria before and was not ready for the meat overload. The salad bar was inventive and varied with dishes like smoked salmon char grilled zucchini and a vast array of salads. The meat just kept on coming all the different cuts of beef lamb pork and chicken. All cooked to perfection. A great night out.
