Food poisoning

Normally when I vomit from whatever the reasons are, it's a short burst of fluid. After eating here, I had a projectile similar to that of the exorcist. I literally thought my mouth was a fire hose that would not stop. I hate doing bad reviews on my favorite type of food, but both my friend and I... read more

This used to be my favourite restaurant in Rio back between 2005-2910. On returning to Brazil for carnival I decided to visit again. Many website claim it has gone down hill and will close and it saddens me to say thati agree. In what was the busiest time of the year for Rio on a Saturday night it was pretty... More

This restaurant was almost closing but allowed us to enter. They are a Brazilian BBQ place with delicious meats continuously served. The buffet was a bit sparse, mostly salads. But it didn't matter because we filled up with juicy rotisserie red meat and chicken. They even carried varied states of wellness for the red meat. Although it was a bit... More

The barbecue was very good (with many different meats) and they definitely kept it coming. A full salad bar with bread as well as a sushi bar, plus various sides. The service was excellent. I would go back, but Porcao is not inexpensive. Be sure your wallet is ready for the adult-sized bill you'll receive. The restaurant isn't formal at... More

Well, this is a classic for "Brazilian BBQ". An endless feast by one of the original and successful practitioners of the this branch of the culinary art. One of my favorite locations but beware and actually avoid if you are dieting as there is simply no way to limit your calorie intake as the selections are almost unlimited and everything... More

This was my first experience at a Brazilian BBQ buffet and it was awesome. I didn't even need to get up from my seat. The food is delivered to you by a waiter carrying a large slab of meat that's been bbq and he cuts slices of it for you. There were cuts of every meat - prime rib, sirloin,... More

I had dinner in this restaurant. It is half buffet (hot and cold dishes) and all-you-can-eat BBQ meat. The system was that when you put the green tag on the table, that meant you want more meat and the staff would come and cut some meat for you. When you were done and wanted no more, then you put the... More

What a great e experience. Salad bar was fresh and had amazing choices. Sushi bar as well was included with sashmi and many sushi rolls. The meat was a little salty but I loved it. Make sure you get some chorizo and some chicken hearts. Ciperinias made beside your table went down fast. Also had some flan and small sweets... More
