Great food and service, and don't forget to try the capirinhas. The variety of meats are splendid, the side dishes keep on coming until you stop them.

A scenic view. Not my kind of place, since I prefer small bistrots, carefully prepared food, little details in every dish and item of the table, cozy atmosphere. But if you want to feed friends or family of the type that want to eat a lot, this is a good restaurant

This is one of the most expensive churrascarias in Rio and used to be one of the best. Unfortunately, the service is now terrible and the meat is not that great anymore. There's a salad buffet with some other side dishes, but nothing much comparing to other restaurants. The only thing that is still great there is the view, but... More

Amazing buffet with lots of choice between salads, hot vegetables, risottos and even sushis Meat - the purpose of the dinner - was good but there was not much choice. Many times the waiters would propose the same type of meats. Perhaps it was because we went on Sunday evening and the place was quite empty For the same price,... More

Porcao isn't what it used to be... Great meat, but too varying quality. The sushi is a laugh, at least when we were there one evening in the end for July 2014. The service, however, was exellent!

Went to the one in Ipanema. Huge place, good selection if new world, mostly Chile/ Argentinian wines. Good and efficient service. The neat was good, but not great. The salad bar was good, but again, not great. Overall, a good place for churrascaria. But, I have a feeling that there are better ones.

When in brazil, you have to eat in one of those Churascaria. We were recommended here by a friend so after the finals, we came here to eat. The meats were great, specially the beef and the lamb. They even had japanese sushi and salmon sashimi selection as well to choose from. All food is paid for, additional drinks are... More

When in Brazil you must at least once eat in a Churrasceria: an ' all you can eat' barbecue restaurant. We had done so in Fortaleza during the World Cup and now we wanted the same experience in Rio. We chose the Porcao upon recommendation of local friends. It is a huge place with a great salad bar and a... More
