Good churrascaria rodizio further away from the beach

The service is good, with good meat and a reasonable saladbuffet. Good pricing as well. Just a bit far from Tambau and Cabo Branco.

A group of us attending a conference in Joao Pessoa located this restaurant through Trip Advisor. We arrived 8.45 p.m. on a weekday, place was packed with locals, after a 20 minute wait we were seated. The ambience is very good, service good despite the large crowd. You start with the salad bar and sushi bar, then the classical meat... More

The food was simply awful for the price, and the wait staff not any better. The meat was dry and fatty, mostly tasteless, and the other dishes were cafeteria quality. I have eaten at two other Sal e Brasa locations in Natal, RN (May, 2009), and Fortaleza (May, 2015). The location in Natal had ok quality food, and an excellent... More

It has the most excellent concept ( rodizio all you can eat + buffet ), and they often announce good prices, but the food was not good - especially the meat. Service nice though.

The food is always excellent as is the service. The selection from the salad bar and buffet in addition to the never ending round of different meats being offered makes this one of the best dining experiences EVER. Cocktails, desserts, coffee, attentive staff - Perfect......

This place was once rated by me as excellent. However, my last experience there was extremely disappointing. The atmosphere remains the same but the quality of service and products has severely declined. Meat was not rarely overcooked and more than once the waiter chose to ignore our table that had been placed in a hidden corner of the restaurant. Tried... More

A hard and overcooked picanha is the worst thing for a Brazilian churrascaria, and this was what I had there last week. The only positive aspect, the wonderful caipirinha prepared with artisanal cachaça from one of the many alambiques from Paraiba. Not to repeat.

We were in Joao Pessoa - my home town - with my family at this Churrascaria. We were really craving for some good churrasco and were a bit disappointed with the taste and quality of the meat offered at the Sal e Braza... The place was packed but I think this is just to link to their low price compared... More
