A feast for carnivores!

My colleague and I stumbled on this place while out for a Sunday stroll following the end of a convention we had both attended at a Copacabana hotel. You pay a flat rate (something like US $25, but extra for drinks and dessert) for a buffet but it is much more than the choices at the buffet... read more

Food was ok but service was very bad. Should the management specially know about the unpolitness of Mr. Clodomir. Absolutely not recommend this place four tourists. Wanted to charge me "extra" when this is a all inclusive restaurant. Avoid

Right along Placa General Osorio, this restaurant provides a true Brazilian Churrascaria experience. Reasonably priced for for this type of restaurant. All you can eat cuts of different meats and a great salad bar with plenty of fruits and even sushi. Definitely a place to try in Ipanema

Authentic Rodizio, inexpensive for type of restaurant and value. Close to Ipanema/Cococabana beach. Wine not overly expensive either.

We read the churrascaria in our hotel guide as a must place to eat. we went there on a Wednesday and we were greeted by a lovely bunch of waiters. As soon as we sat down we were presented with a lovely Argentinian wine which was on promotion. We did not have to wait long when we started to get... More

We went to this restaurant and were very impressed with everything. The service was prompt and courteous, the wine was reasonably priced. The meats were some of the best I had tasted. Great selection of good quality meats, well cooked. We came out feeling, we must go back, so two days later we did. Oh dear. We wished we hadn't.... More

Our tour group came here for lunch as it was included. All in all the food was good especially the sushi and salad. I think there's a lot of toursists here but it's still a good representation of a Rodizio. In Ipanema.
