Service is good, food good, but not awesome. But it depends on a person ;) Most of the people like it really much and it's true. Were unhappily surprised when we finished dinner and went out to take a taxi. Girl on exit said that we can go on restaurant's taxi (witch is not yellow). I asked if it's really... More

I was actually hesitant to go here with friends at first, because I'd rather check out a local restaurant (which I did) BUT if I compare this Fogo to the local Rio establishments, this was much better!!! Great service, perfect food and drinks. I give them credit for remaining so efficient while being extremely busy. This was easily the best... More

i really liked this Churrascaria. Recommend much more than the Porcao Rios down the street. The meat and the salad bar was fantastic... much fresher and better quality options than at Porcao.. Its expensive, but i believe worth it... the "creme de papaya" is definitely wroth while to try. the view is very nice... highly recommend...

Manic, in a word, best describes this dining experience. It is rapid fire from the moment you enter the restaurant. Waiters descend on you pulling out chairs, placing serviettes, delivering instructions on how this buffet/carnivore extravaganza operates, including the use of red/green coloured credit cards that are used to quickly communicate to staff whether or not you want them to...

What a fabulous restaurant, I was full at the salad bar and then the meat started to come and it kept coming and coming, The service was wonderful and the atmosphere really made me feel like I was enjoying Rio at its finest. No trip to Rio is complete unless you visit a Brazilian Steakhouse and this is one of... More

Great atmosphere overlooking the bay of botafogo, combined with superior cuts of meats and great service. A bit on the expensive side, but the meat rodizio, salad and cold cuts bar are fantastic.

If you are in Rio and love meat, you have to visit this place! Went there last week while on holiday and must say that the service was the best I've ever had. The meat was delicious (I can't say the same about the salad, though). It was reasonably priced too- we paid £35 each for a all-you-can-eat dinner including... More

Definitely recommend visiting this great restaurant. Not only is the meat delicious, their side dish of pao de queijo is the best I've had so far. Well worth the R$119 price per head.
