Traditional Brazilian Meat

This is a place that has been around for a long time and continues to drive a crowd because the meat is excellent and the prices are not exorbitant. A great place to go.

If you are looking for a great piece of meat at a reasonable price, this is your place! It is not the typical 'all you can eat' restaurant. Its meats are great, the portions huge and the old school service fantastic! It gets pretty bussy, specially on weekends, therefore reserving a table is adviced.

A Rio native friend recommended the place, and we were not disappointed. The meat is truly excellent. This is not an all-you-can-eat place, you buy from the menu, but if there are several of you you can choose several types to test different ones. You can go to the display bar, and choose the pieces you want to it. A... More

We first went to Majorica Petropolis on our Tour and found out they have another one in Rio, that in our opinion was even better. We had Picanha, Fraldinha and "Batata Pastel" a real must!

One of the oldest steak houses in the city. Never changed its a la carte serving. There is another one in Petropolis. Good meat and side dishes. However, nothing very special. Rio de Janeiro has never had great stekhouses anyway. This one is good, if you wish an old fashioned traditional place.

We've gone to this restaurant since 1971,and until it burned down it was first rate. But now, at a lunch, we found some of the meat tough (beef) and on our next trip won't go there anymore. The price is too high for the quality served up

I went with friends who love a good steakhouse but until now were not sure where in Rio, good steaks are available. I took them to Majorica and they were not disappointed. The ambience is wonderfully nostalgic but the service is efficient and charming. I cannot stress enough that this place is a unique steakhouse experience not only in Rio... More

It is a tradition: when I visit Rio de Janeiro, even when just for a few days, I try to have a meal at Majorica. Curious, I usually read the most recent reviews to check what is going on and there have been some negative ones since my last visit. Well, I imagine that every restaurant has its bad days,... More

If you are a steak lover, you will have a nice meal ! Don't go in a hurry, it may take a little while for the meal to arrive.

I don’t understand how this restaurant is rated so highly. Either these guys were having a really off night or there are a lot of fake reviews. I came here with 3 friends and this was easily the worst meal of the trip and according to my friend Adam the worst meal of his life(a little dramatic I know). But... More
