Great for meat lovers!

Recommended by our hotel Concierge, if you are a meat lover, this restaurant is fabulous! Very casual and welcoming, they have a huge salad type bar to choose from and then you get to the meat! You have a 'card' on your table, one side 'green' and the other 'red'. If you keep the 'green' side up... read more

Was longing some good meat, , and discovered that Porcao (Flamengo) was no longer, so wound up at Fogo de Chao. We were not disappointed in the least, and was pleased with the view, the quality, and the service. Although pricey (by Rio standards), it was worth very penny.

Read so many reviews on this restaurant that if I didn't eat bbq meat in Fogo de Chao when in Rio De Janeiro I will hit my head every time I eat steak, with the steak of course. So it was with great happiness and excitement I found myself in Fogo de Chao Barra. I wasn't disappointed. The loads of... More

A set fee to eat as much as you like of a very fresh & varied buffet followed by as much meat predominantly beef as you could eat sliced onto your plate at the... More

We were in Brazil for our honeymoon and we hooked up with a few cariocas friends/colleagues. Knowing my love for meat they brought us straight to Fogo de Chao. OMG! Can't believe the quality of the meat. I wish i had two stomachs that day let me tell you! The only meat i didn't like were the chicken hearts which... More

This place is located very close to Leme, Copacabana and the Santo Dumont Aiport. After, I arrived at SDU airport, I went straight to this place and the place did not disappoint. I have been to many Fogo De Chao places in the USA. For pure taste this place was better. Probably because it is original to this country. The... More

Neighborhood Profile

Its numerous bars and pubs make this area a great choice for anyone interested in a great nightlife experience - in fact, some bars in the area are open all night. Casa Daros, an art museum that showcases amazing artists from Latin America, is a must see located in a historical building in Botafogo.
