Great Service

If you like a lot of meat that is cooked to rare to medium then eat at the Fogo De Chao. I requested medium well cooked meat and the waiters tried but was difficult to get but a few pieces right. However, the service was excellent and saldbar was very good.

For people who like the meat, this is the place to go. The meat is really delicious and if you to know a secret, ask for the piece number 23, you will give me the news.

We were rather dubious because it was recommended by our hotel concierge and he booked us in as well - as we were walking out the door of our hotel! However, it proved to me that one shouldn't jump to conclusions. We realised when we got there how grateful we should have been to that concierge as there was a... More

...Location, top food, top service. I had the first Fogo experience years ago in Atlanta but I have to say, this was even better. All very good apart of the Taxi-Service Lady after dinner who preferred to writ e:mail rather then taking care of leaving guests. Herbert

We visit this restaurant twice during our Brazil holiday, in Rio and in Sao Paulo. We eat limitless meat for 119 Real. You can also eat from the salad bar, it was also good.

Great evening. You get a plate of sides, and then they bring a large array of meat choices until you tell them to stop. Pleasant service, friendly wait staff, above average food and drinks. There was a large, lovely, floral arrangement in the middle of the room. A bonus. Great to enjoy the genuine Brazilian experience. If this review is... More
