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.

Excellent service, meat, salad options. I'm Brazilian and have been to many steakhouses before, but this one was definitely the best so far.

Quite an expensive restaurant. A variety of meets, eat as much as you can. Don't waste stomach space on salads... For desert (yes, you need one), take the Creme de Papaya (with Cassis liquer), that would be the ultimate choice...

I have eaten at Fogo de Chao in Dallas and Miami, but the flagship restaurant in Rio is a real treat. The salads and meats are delicious and the wait staff is extremely professional and helpful. This restaurant has a nice view. I enjoyed my visit and will return.

A must visit. Amazing BBQ. Intense flavour, perfectly cooked and with a great buffet of sides to the meat. Also a nice patio to finish of the evening with a drink. Very good.

Beautiful restaurant with delicious meats. The wait staff is extremely helpful. It is quite expensive but it is worth the experience when you visit Rio de Janeiro for the first time.
