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

This is a very good restaurant for business and family meal......very scenery location. I don't have any complaint about the meat, as every cut is worth the value.

A novel concept for me; buffet starters (great range of Brazilian specialties) followed by an 'at table carvery' that starts and stops when you choose. There seemed around 6-8 cuts of beef to choose from, along with some lamb, chicken and pork too. All were beautifully cooked, extremely tasty and hard to resist. The price was great too - at...

I can only compare this to Brazilian Churrascarias I have been to in the USA of which Fogo is present. However I have never tried Fogo there, just some rival chains. TIP: download a map and print it out. Our taxi driver could not find the place even though it is in a fairly distinct area of Botafogo. I liked... More

This restaurant is placed on Botafogo beach, and has an amazing view on the bay and the Sugar Loaf. It is a kind of luxury churrascaria, you get excellent meat and food, not overpriced but also not cheap. Dining outside would be a great choice!

I went to the restaurant with several of my colleagues. The view was very nice, the service was excellent and the food was excellent. This was probably the best churrascaria meal I've had. The staff gave us a card as a reference (in Portuguese and English) for the different cuts of meats we were served. There was also a good... More
