All you can eat

A meat paradise. You get a cardboard "coin" with a green and a red side. As long as the green side is facing up the waiters will offer you more grilled meat. T-bone, flank, rump, fillet, pork, chicken hearts etc etc. All meat is perfectly grilled and carved at your table and you pick up your bits... read more

One of the best Chuascarrias in all of Rio, the others are Porcao Rio in Flamingo and Mariu's in Leme but if you're in Ipanema and craving meat then this is the place to go!

The atmosphere is elegant, with a great view of Sugar Loaf Mountain, outstanding service and excellent cuisine. Brazil is known for it's great Churrascaria, and I usually choose the filet mignon. The salad bar is extensive with many delicacies, and the waiters are at your beck and call. I highly recommend this restaurant. On occasion the head chef will visit... More

This place is amazing. It's an all-you-can-eat meat restaurant, where the meat comes to you! The waiters come with several types of meat and offers it to you. You get a card with the color green on one side and red on the other. If you choose to have the green side showing, they keep coming with meat to your... More

Very popular with locals and tourists alike. Offers a very decent rodizio-style barbecue at friendly prices considering the location. No frills décor, no frills food.

The atmosphere is simple yet wonderful with several very long tables where families and couples sit amongst each other. All of the salads and cheeses on the bar are excellent and all of the meat is the best you will ever eat in your life.

Delicious churrascos and sushi in the same place, probably this is one of the best buffet restos I've been.

Slightly smaller outlet than otherorcaos, which makes it cozier. Classic meat 'rodizio': free flow salad buffet + loads of different meets coming to your table! The salad buffet quality fine, but don't get too much as you need to leave space for the really important part of the meal: the picanha! Try to avoid chicken, livers and that short of... More

This used to be a good steakhouse in the city. Something has happened in the last five years. Unattentive staff, lower than expected level of the served steak, too costly for what you get. I would say this is a place to be avoided, especially for the high cost.
