Absolute very good!

Nice Restaurant facing the water, but most of the meat was overcooked, so we could not really taste Brazilian beef. Waiters come to your table, each offering a different piece of beef. I went with three friends for dinner. Based on the reviews we had expected to visit a real Brazilian steak house and understand what Brazilian beef was about.... More

Fogo de Chao, wherever you are traveling in Brasil, is always a guarantee. I've tried it in Sao Paulo and in Rio de Janeiro and both times it was excellent. This structure in Rio has also the plus of being in Botafogo right on the water, so also the view is nice. The meat is always outstanding, service is great,... More

Very nice dining room, lots of space and great atmosphere. Nicely decorated. Located at the Botafogo bay with a nice view over the beach Service is very good and the waiters are all over serving meat. The meat is of course perfect. There is a buffet with vegetables to accomplish your meat. Try to taste a small piece of each... More

Went there with residents who recommended it for an interesting and authentic taste of grilled Brazilian meat. Large and varied salad bar in the middle. Each table setting has a drawing of a steer, with a listing of different cuts of meat, each numbered. Waiters come around with very large skewers of different cuts, and they will slice pieces off...

Really beautiful place. Great service. Great food. Ambiance was top-notch. The buffet was one of the best I've had. But dont forget, you'll pay for it, kinda pricey.

This rodizio of wonderfull meats in all of the posible cut of meat you could imagine. You can eat as much as you want. There is a strategy: the side dishes are also delicious but take them slowly. ... go for the meat. Any way you can not scape the salad bar.... incredible good.... be careful!! Delicious drinks and cachaza...... More
