MEAT Feast

Don't get distracted by the breads, chips or even the very nice salad and wait for the better cuts of meat, they are delicious! Very helpful staff too.

I love barbecue, especially the Brazilian "rodizio" style. I thought I knew a little about barbecue and visited quite a few nice restaurants, but this one surprised me. They have the perfect meat. It is called "Costela premium" (premium rib). Tasty, soft, juicy and prepared as you order (even though it is a "rodizio"!) The waiters are polite, know their... More

The rules were made clear and we had had a good meal with different types of meat. The food was excellent well prepared (as to be expected here). the salad bar well stocked and diverse. choice of wine was good ranging from good and affordable to very good and expensive. Staff was friendly, but only a few could speak English.... More

The selection of tender and beautifuly grilled beef,pork and chicken all cooked to your liking was only surpassed by the fine table service. A Must Do when in Brasilia.

Whenever we feel like a good meal in this overpriced town we splash out on Fogo de Chão. It is a classy place, relatively quiet, well-dressed customers, attentive service, a cornucopia of salads and meat (as much as you can eat) to die for. We returned a couple of Saturdays ago for lunch: still superlative. The place was only half-full,... More

I originally wanted to try a more local, less franchised carneceria but was out voted so we ate here. It was delicious, drinks flowed all night, so energetic...It was a great time

We visited Fogo de chao Brasilia twice during our stay in march. Both dinners were excellent. The meat they serve is excellent and you can choose anything between raw or full done. Definitely recommended if you visit Brasilia.

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!
