Maybe overpriced?

We went at about 7pm on a Monday evening and it was very quiet, only one other couple there. It did get more busy as the evening progressed, but not overly busy. The staff were great from the start. Very attentive,friendly and not pushy at all like another similar restaurant we went to close by... read more

Some here wrote the price is expensive, well it is right, but the meat is the best I ever eat in Rio, so if you have not enough money to eat in the best churrascaria in Rio, this is not your place, otherwise go there and enjoy the food ! You won't regret for sure !

Amazing meal and dining experience in Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. So good, in fact, that another traveller staying at my hostel had me take him there immediately following my meal so that he could have some.

Excellent selection of all kind of BBQ beef, various cuts. Wide variety also included Leg of lamb, chicken, ribs... surprised us. Additionally, salads, soups, and wide variety of dessert. Oh! There's sushi too, the chef is making there in front of you. In the end we also ordered, their ice cream special glass dipped in chocolate and nuts... If you... More

I had high expectations with this place because many people said "is the competitor of Fogo de Chao" and I believed that food and service would be the same however it was below... first thing I asked for a caipirinha and I didn't like it at all in fact many people didn't, food is ok (not a great thing) and...

The meat's good, but no better than you'll find in cheaper places, and the dining room has all the charm of an airport convention hotel. For a more authentic - and fun - churrasco, try Fogo de Chao in Botafogo.

Hughley expensive for the small ppl, no wonder cuz it's the favourite restaurant of Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Madonna... so prepare your purse and your tummy if you decide to check this restaurant out! I'd definitely... More

Meat is really good but there are no many cuts, I counted 7-8, I was expecting a few more. The restaurant decor is very simple and classic, I would try something more brazilian or more risky. Service is very attentive, a bit pushy though!
