The service is like everywhere else in Rio pleasant and polite. Waiters seem to be enjoying their job and this is important; they all had a smile on their face all the time. My only complaint is that they kept insisting on offering me meat even though my flag was turned to RED. The meat selection is amazing. Ron T... More

Serves a good meal, even if you're not a meat eater.The buffet has over 30 different selections of salads, vegetables, pastas, hot seafood and sushis. Good service. Playground for kids. Pricy, but worth it.

Average level churrascaria overall. Very good selection of beef, no lamb. Tasted very good, cooked nicely. Price per person for the buffet was R$ 105, a bit steep. Salad bar average, also had 3 or 4 hot seafood selections including baked salmon. Of course drinks and desserts were extra. For 3 of us we paid R$ 472, or about $200.... More

I am a big fan of churrascarias. The quality of the meat was very good, the service was excellent and the buffet bar is good. There is a good selection within the buffet including sushi, salads and vegetables. It's expensive but worthwhile.

We went to Porcao on the advice of a friend and admittedly went there mostly for the experience as I’ve never been to anything like it before. The restaurant is essentially a set price buffet, although the food (well the meat) comes to you instead of you going to it. There is a fairly reasonable buffet with a good selection... More

Porcao is a very famous chain of Brazilian BBQ. With unlimited supply of delicious BBQ, this place should be in any foodie's list travelling to Brazil. The bbq was good with lot of varieties. Good varieties of salads were served. The service was good and prompt. One thing I disliked about this place (and many other in Brazil) was that... More

I was satisfied by the experience, although it was a bit pricey (105 reais for the food). The meat came regularly and there was no "dead moment". We had to turn our cards on "NAO" a few times as our plates were full :) The quality of the meat was high and tasted amazingly good. They also brought us rice,... More

Maybe I was expecting too much, but this restaurant was disappointing. I've had better churrasco that was less expensive with better quality food. The meat was OK, the salad bar was not that great, the pao de queijo appetizer was one of the worse I've had - dry and hard. The only plus were the caipirinha drinks that were good.
