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

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.

This is not a bad place, but for the price you surely can find something better when you are in Rio. The ambient is too simple so the food is. You have to pay 109 real per person, desserts and drinks excluded.

This is a very nice restaurant. The waiting area is like a bar and they even serve you complimentary meat while you wait to be seated. The food was good, but there could have been a greater variety of meat. I will overlook that since I got chicken hearts for the first time since my 1st visit to Brazil 12... More

Classic Brazilian churrascaria near the Hippie Fair park. Excellent selections with a wide variety of meats. Traditional and timeless feijao (black beans) and rice. The salad bar reflects the wide variety of local vegetables. Wonderful tropical drinks. My favorite churrascaria whenever I am visiting Rio.

I visited this restaurant twice. They do have an Excellent Buffett. Plenty of meat. Recommend the dragon fruit caipirinhas. The salad bar was okay, the sushi was great. Price is in the high side. It is worth every penny
