I had some rice, beans and chicken. That was fine (nothing to brag about) but i dared to put like 6 pieces of sushi on my plate- i dared eat one of them because i noticed it was off. Spent the rest of the night puking. Please Please PLEASE do not ruin one of your trip days with this- spend... More

The five of us went after spending the day on Copacabana beach. We had walked by it the day before and thought it seemed ok. It was more than ok, it was DELICIOUS!. For less than $20 each we enjoyed a huge buffet including sushi and paid about $2 for a caipirinha. Ok, there were significantly more than one caipirinha... More

Churrascaria place that has both rodizzo (waiters bring skewers of Meat to you) for $40ish or. You can eat por kilo, a buffet where they weigh your plate ( about $20 ) Atmosphere is pretty boring, just rows of table. Not very special . The por kilo buffet isnt great. It is ok for lunch but isnt very diverse. The... More

Just this minute got back from this restaurant with my boyfriend and I felt I had to write a review (the first review I have written of my trip to Brazil). The restaurant itself is pretty basic in looks. However, every single meat opportunity delivered to the table was absolutely delicious. We also shared a bottle of red wine (Almaden)... More

Take this advice seriously, this place does not represent what Brazil has to offer in kind of gastronomy. Take any kind of other spot but not this one. It does not worth. The meat is terrible. Don't get confused by the low price.

From the first impression, the place doesn't give you the best feeling (doesn't seem to be the nicest restaurant in town, far away from there) but if you can remove that 1st bad image from your eyes and focus on the meat that the waiters are carrying, you will seat. And you will eat. Eat, eat and eat some more.... More

...but not Porcao. The ambiance is basic, the food plentiful and fair. The price for a full stomach is very good. You can not leave hungry. Salad bar could be more complete - but you're here for the meat. You will leave R$40 lighter. Say no more.

Don't eat for a week. Thought they were trying to kill me with meat. Fabulous buffet with salads veg and fish, meat in sauces. Pasts, you name it and it was there. Roving witers with bbq meat on huge swords - more than possible to eat. Drinks maybe a bit expensive.

Very unformal, family-type and shorts and T-shirt restaurant. The lighting is terrible, very bright and it is also a noisy place. But the service is good, the price is fair and the meat is good. 31.50 Real ( 20 USD) on weekends for all-you-can-eat is acceptable ( drinks and dessert not included).
