Very good quality meat is what you will find, great service, and they apply same price as Porcão Rio's. It worth a visit and you will have a great view to the Guanabara bay (Enseada de Botafogo)

You know it's going to be a very good place when it is filled with locals and not tourists. The view is amazing over looking the Botafago Bay, the restaurant is spacious and clean and welcoming. There is a rich salad bar and the meat selection is amazing. It is a must experience in Brazil to try the Churrascaria!

Located at Botafago Bay, this typical Brazilian all-you-can eat restaurant had excellent meats and a good salad bar. An excellent example of this not to be missed Brazilian culinary experience.

My partner and I went here for dinner while we were in Rio over the Thanksgiving holiday. The meal was a good substitution for Thanksgiving - large portions, tons of side dishes and felt very full at the end of dinner - no room for dessert. The cuts of meat were very good, particularly the sirloin and the chorizo. The... More

This rodízio experience was very good, but hardly the best I've had. Meat was of excellent quality, but the variety of meat cuts was average at most. Besides, I missed some of the side dishes that typically go with Rodízio. Service was not very efficient (several requests from my table simply went forgotten). The location is great, with a large...

We have eaten at Fogo in several cities on different continents. This is not among the best. The reservation made by our hotel concierge helped, as we were seated near a window, with a view of the harbor. The salad bar is adequate, but not exceptional. The beef was good, and they offer a selection of different meats. But the... More

Literally can no walk out of the restaurant. Meat was amazing, made the armature mistake of starting to quickly. Some great Portuguese wines in particular. Well worth a visit.
