Well-established chain dotted around several shopping centres in Rio offers excellent Bar-B-Que meats, ribs and similar at reasonable prices. The onion , deep-fried is a must and the prtions are good. Beer is always very cold, attentive service but avoid at weekends, can get long queues which shows... read more

The waiters always take too long to come serve. We're never sure if its because they are overworked or if because they are told to steer clear so people will just clear the table faster, but it's a bad and annoying sort of business. Would rather go to Applebee's or somewhere else where waiters are actually interested in serving.

I do not intend to be back over there, what a disappointment! the time to all service (to serve, to bring the bill, to bring something else, to bring food and beverage at the right moment), the temperature of the food and its just "average" quality. I'm out! (with no "back")

Went on sunday.. enjoy the extra large.. extra cold beers.. even enjoyed the chicken wings although they aren't spicy. Problem was when we first sat down we then asked to move tables as we felt like we hadn't really left the waiting area. We'd already ordered our food with the first waiter and ended up waiting for two steaks that... More

As in the title, the place is excellent if you want a very tasty meat: the offer different cuts, with a US-like serving style. The main course should satisfy even the hungriest palates, so the cost is in line with others restaurant of that kind, with a large variety of drinking options (even refill is available). However, the friendly approach... More

I'm not particularly fond of those huge American portion sizes that they serve there. One dish can feed two or three people. I normally think that this is a waste of food. Quality wise, I think it's on par with a Planet Hollywood or Hard Rock Cafe. Nothing special, huge servings, expensive. And that's it.

Shopping Leblon's Outback is a place to be avoided, there's a lot os better places to go for a nice eating experience this mall. Onion reduced size, no ribs, coke terrible. Perhaps was just that night, my first one in this place. I know several other Outbacks in Rio and worldaround, this one holds the lantern.

My first experience in this restaurant located on the 4th floor of the best shopping mall in Rio. Very good fried onions and french fries with cheese, my tilapia and prawns was delicious. I don't know much about Australian food, this might not be what they serve in Australia...but it is pretty good. My wife had steak done to perfection... More

I've tried many churrascarias in Rio de Janeiro. Just to be clear and honest: this is not a restaurant for "special occasions" (romantic or working dinners) but if you are searching for a "very" good meat, a good service and a fair price, this is the place for you.

Fantastic steaks, french fries, T-bone, fried onions, roast chicken and petit gateau. The portions are big and one dish is good for two or three people. They serve Australian peppered sauce
