yesterday I went to a very traditional , 50 year old, barbecue restaurant in Rio. I'd been there two weeks ago with a friend and two weeks before that invited by another friend that eats there for the last fifty years. IN MY CASE EVERY TIME a smiling service and crowded tables greeted me. This is not a rodízio and... More

When in Rio, this is the place to go. We were two families of friends sharing a dinner. Service is very good, but watch for the offering of too much food. We were six and we all shared ONE picanha especial which was plenty to all of us. Of course we also had a salad, the farofa a Dolabella, two... More

After having a meal at this legend, it's simple to understand why people stand hours before getting a table. At Majorica seven decades of the best meat in town are available to fortunate barbacue lovers.

I went here with my in-laws. The restaurant is dark and soothing. We sat in the center of the restaurant near the 10+ foot grill. In front of the grill is a refridgerated display holding numerous cuts of beef, chicken, pork and salmon. You can pick your own cut, or let them select a cut. I ordered a T-bone and... More

Everyone said this was THE place to go for steak. A standard in Rio. Talk about being given bad information. The prices were average plus for Rio which is expensive by North American standards - but that's Rio. The asparagus came right out of a can, was limp, white and cold. NOT what the menu said. The steak I ordered... More

I went for dinner whilst on business in Rio, on the strength of other trip adviser ratings and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The meat is excellent. I had the Picanha which others have recommended and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. The BBQ flavour came out very well. To my shame I don't speak Portuguese but that was not a... More

Excellent barbecue! A little expensive but as for the cost benefit ratio is still fair. You should try "maminha" instead of picanha...since you'll end up spending less for a great meat! Accompany it with "fato da de banana"... Trust me!

Meat, BBQ, hog heaven and carnivore all in one. If you go to this restaurant you must like Meat. It is not for the faint of heart. Beef of all kinds, Lamb chops, chicken, sushi, octopus, ostrich, shrimp, amazon fish, And more and more. Although they do a a wonderful salad bar. The service was excellent. The Caipirinha strong "be... More

We were 12 having a delicious lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had a great meal. Order the picanha and you will be satisfied. The egg farofa is great. I plan to return many times.
