Was better in the past. As this is a buffet, be careful the day you go, the busier the day and the earlier you go the better. I have been on a very busy day and it was excellent. I went on a slow day and it was so so at best. Mixed bag status, service was so so both... More

It was really great experience. Ambiance of the restaurant was not nice. There was open buffet sushi and salade. In my opinion if you come to Porcao for churrascaria, do not eat them. Because you need so much space in your stomach. Just focus on the meats. They have so many kinds of meat. Quality and cook of the meat... More

Not a very fancy place, white tableclothes, lots of tables and meat everywhere. Been to Brazilian Steakhouses in the states but this felt more traditional and real. Of course, when in Rome... So, I untied the tie, loosened the belt and enjoyed the feast. All inclusive was good price and the salad and sushi bar were great start. Of course... More

Three of us had a late lunch on 9/28. Impeccable service!! Wait staff seemed to read our thoughts. Salad, cheese, bread and fish buffet has a wide selection of excellent choices. All were very tasty and well prepared. Than the variety of meat started. About half way through one selection and another was offered, then another, than another. Just had... More

I went to a place like this in Buenos Aries but was very unimpressed so my expectations were not so high for this place. But I was very pleasant surprises. The salad bar had a lot of good options, they also had a sushi section. The waiters are at your table every few minutes with a new choice. Wow. I... More

Do not go here solo and are female. The food was pretty good, but considering I was alone and it was a bit before the dinner rush hour, the waiters (all male) wouldn't stop starring at me while eating. Quite the uncomfortable experience and ruined my dinner. I dashed out of there as quickly as I could. I am sure... More

Brilliant Churrasco style restaurant in Rio. Nice self service buffet, but more importantly if you like red meat or meat in general this is a great place to experience the Brazilian style of bbq. Beautifully cooked meat brought to your table and sliced thinly... ranging from Picanha to chateau briand.

If you like pork, if you like cow.... visit Porcao. The home of Brazilian churrasco style (barbecue) dining. Epic portions, beautifully cooked meat of every description delivered to your table on skewers, with a giant salad bar containing every side dish under the sun. In case you weren't full enough. Pricey, but great value if you're hungry. And the staff... More

Had a very nice meal here. The picanha and prime sirloin were delicious (we asked for it rare as this is how we like it!) as was the farofa. The self service salad bar has plenty choice including some sushi/sashimi, but be careful to save room for the meat! Service was good though the atmosphere could be better.

The price (105pp) although not worth it, is a place that should be experienced. The waiters come with massive amounts of meat on a stick ranging from hearts to sirloin which authentic at first becomes annoying as you become full and could vomit at the sight of more meat. I particularly appreciated the salad bar (good olive oil, lemon on... More
