We had read good reviews of this place as a churrascaria. For us this place was soulless. It's for people who like buffets and massive quantity. Service was poor and uninterested. Most of the food was bland, whether it came from the buffet or was the churrascaria skewers. They brought all kinds of food to the table which we didn't... More

We have been at this restaurant's İpanema branch after recommendation from our hotel. You can eat as much as you can till you show red card to stop the attendant bringing variety of meat in the skewers or plate. There was more beef less pork and chicken. On the other side there was an open buffet containing japanese food too.... More

Already eating in a Churrascaria is an experience, eating here is excellent, from the entry dishes to all the meat! Caipirinha very good too!

It’s a good value churfascaria near the beach. The food had a lot of flavor. I found that I was very thirsty later that night, so probably indicates that they use quite a bit of salt in everything, but no one’s going to go to this place for healthy eating anyway. Prices: Adults: 65R plus drinks and desert Children: 40R... More

Off Copacabana Blvd.by a block this place is small and crowded and great. For $20 we got the salad bar, appetizers, and all the meat off skewers we could eat. Drinks and desserts were extra. The place starts to fill up after 7:30 or so and then it is wall to wall crammed with diners. The beef and lamb were... More

Had the beef of course. The staff were very helpful even teaching us some Portuguese words. The location is amazing, right on the beach and the views are terrific. You can eat outside but we decided not to. The meal was seasoned well and the wine was very nice. Highly recommended.

Tables with brazilians got lots of dishes from the kitchen that were not available at the buffet. I asked several times... More

We were recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The salad bar was so good that i made the mistake of filling up on it and not getting to have much of the meat. But when i did have the meat, it was very very good. My husband lived it as well. Make sure to come on an empty... More
