I went to a place like this in Buenos Aries but was very unimpressed so my expectations were not so high for this place. But I was very pleasant surprises. The salad bar had a lot of good options, they also had a sushi section. The waiters are at your table every few minutes with a new choice. Wow. I... More

Do not go here solo and are female. The food was pretty good, but considering I was alone and it was a bit before the dinner rush hour, the waiters (all male) wouldn't stop starring at me while eating. Quite the uncomfortable experience and ruined my dinner. I dashed out of there as quickly as I could. I am sure... More

Brilliant Churrasco style restaurant in Rio. Nice self service buffet, but more importantly if you like red meat or meat in general this is a great place to experience the Brazilian style of bbq. Beautifully cooked meat brought to your table and sliced thinly... ranging from Picanha to chateau briand.

If you like pork, if you like cow.... visit Porcao. The home of Brazilian churrasco style (barbecue) dining. Epic portions, beautifully cooked meat of every description delivered to your table on skewers, with a giant salad bar containing every side dish under the sun. In case you weren't full enough. Pricey, but great value if you're hungry. And the staff... More

Had a very nice meal here. The picanha and prime sirloin were delicious (we asked for it rare as this is how we like it!) as was the farofa. The self service salad bar has plenty choice including some sushi/sashimi, but be careful to save room for the meat! Service was good though the atmosphere could be better.

The price (105pp) although not worth it, is a place that should be experienced. The waiters come with massive amounts of meat on a stick ranging from hearts to sirloin which authentic at first becomes annoying as you become full and could vomit at the sight of more meat. I particularly appreciated the salad bar (good olive oil, lemon on... More

This is a must-do experience in Ipanama. A huge buffet selection but not cheap. The meat supply is non-stop and the salad bar is excellent. But the restaurant is too big for me and quite noisy and very busy. I prefer to eat at the smaller rodizios.

Your traditional skewer wielding servers with eat as much as you can meat. The meat was very tasty and never ending with good selection. There were some good salad and fish options including some sushi available. At 105 reals per person without drinks it doesn't take a lot to get close to 400 reals for the meal or 2 and... More

If you love meat and can eat a lot, this is the place to go. There is a flat charge and the meat servers are never ending. They come over to your table with skewers of meat and carve it onto your plate on a regular basis. There are so many different cuts of meat to try. The salad bar... More

My friend and I waited til the very last night of our Brazilian World Cup trip to try Brazilian BBQ. Porcao was recommended by a fellow tour member and it was close to our hotel so we decided to go for it. There was an abundance of food at the buffet and the seafood selection was absolutely delicious. It's a... More
