A Superb Table, Honest Barbs

This is a Carioca's institution. Luckies, we sat at a round window table, Guanabara Bay blessing our bodies and belies. Hard to get better! Good entrées, tasty picanhas, maminhas, side dishes and co...

We were recommended to visit here and we took a taxi when the carnival was on, the traffic was dreadful and it took us ages to get here. It is necessary to go by car as it is a little away from the main area. They were very friendly on arrival, the lighting is very bright with a canteen feel... More

This was my first authentic Brazilian steakhouse. (I've eaten at one in the States, but probably too Americanized.). I will say that I was impressed with the flavor of the meat. I mainly had beef and a small slice of sausage, which had a little bite! Scrumptious! The buffet items were impressively displayed. Some things I could not identify...some I... More

Nice location between Flamengo and Botafogo. Good service, friendly staff, big variety of good meat. Offer all kinds of meat from chicken hearts to Filet Mignon. Not a low-price location

We did not need to book for a Saturday evening, and where quickly shown to a table, the restaurant is huge and felt a bit like a school canteen. Buffet selection of salads and sushi and the waiters bring round various cuts of meats on skewers. Chips & rice are bought to your table too. You use a card system... More

I was brought here as a treat by some very generous friends and was a bit reluctant to get any food at all seeing as I only really eat fish and veggies. After they insisted I went over to the buffet area and the veggies they had were fantastic. A huge ranged of cooked and raw, all very well presented... More

This restaurant is very expensive. It is brazilian steak house, but it is very expensive. Very good, but very expensive. But the place where it is has a wonderful view and it is a natural park called Aterro do Flamengo or Flamengo embankment, designed by Burle Marx. There you can see the sugar loaf Mountain and Guanabara Bay. Very beautiful.

This was an unforgettable culinary experience - best churrasqueria I've been to. The meat is not the only amazing thing there - don't forget to go to the salad bar and try the sushi and everything else they have. Leave room for plenty of food! The view is also stunning. EAT. MEAT. MORE. MEAT.
