All you can eat Churrascaria - everything from tons of meat to cheese and sushi!

Churrascarias are the brasilian version of an all you can eat. The waiters already bring you tons of things like potatoes, fries and rice to the table. They are also coming around with different kinds of meat. They have a different kind each time and sometimes bring other things from the grill. So... read more

Non stop food coming to your table. A true brazilian churrascaria. The garlic bread is excellent, as well as many of the beef courses. Very goid caipirinhas, and a huge variety of desserts. We went there for dinner without reservations and were able to get a nice table, but it was a Tuesday. Service is ok , not out of... More

Four of us ate here and left completely stuffed having totally overheating as its hard to say "no"! Massive salad/veg/sushi bar, rice/fries etc and as much meat as you can eat all brought to the table, followed by a huge selection of lovely puds - delicious!

Best place in Rio for a good selection of well BBQ'D meat. Good selection of salad and buffet food. Staff make you feel at home and nothing is to much trouble. Only visited Ipanema location so cant comment on Copacabana.

Sushi, salmon with passion fruit, steaks, salads, etc, this place is a must go in Ipanema after the beach. Remember this is all... More

It's fixed price buffet style with lots of meat. We counted about 9 different types. All cooked wonderfully. We skipped the skewer of chicken hearts, but ate everything else. Liked it so much we went twice. Staff friendly and helpful, chopp cold and frothy. The buffet has pasta, cheese, sushi and sashimi. But the meat is the star, and as... More

The restaurant is average and attention is rather poor. They serve a buffet that is very complete, salads are rich. The waiters served the meats to the plate, but they were too slow and we have to keep calling them because they didn't stop by our table. They are not prepare to serve large groups.

We were picked up at our hotel driven with a group of about 15 to the restaurant. Ordered a bottle of wine, and they brought it with the desert even though we kept asking for it.

The atmosphere is so good if you are looking for a little exclusive BBQ. On top a very nice buffet they are very generous with the meet and have a lot of different chicken, pork and cow. The price is little above average, but definetly worth the money
