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

To get the full Rio experience, you have to eat at a churrascaria. Porcao was recommended by our hotel staff as well as taxi drivers. There are 2 locations and the Ipanema location is supposedly the better location, so there we went. Come extremely hungry as you will feast on your life!! I hope that you can eat as fast... More

I ate there with three friends and we all left disappointed. Price (112R before the service and drinks) very expensive in relation to other places where we ate (eg Carretao), which served food as good and maybe even better and we paid only about 70R. The service was poor and several times we asked our waiter to come. In the... More

Churrascaria Porcao is among the most renowned in Rio. It is a very large restaurant that can easily accommodate bigger groups and thefore it is not so atmospheric. However, the buffet is very good, the meat served comes in great variety and is of good quality and the service is very attentive. All in all a very nice experience that... More

Brazilian barbecue located in Ipanema. Large restaurant able to accommodate large parties. Excellent - must try at least once during your stay. Several types of barbecued beef and meat. Quite hectic - the waiters bring around the meat very quickly - so before you know it your plate is full. Salad and sushi bar available also. I would definitely recommend... More

We are expats and live in Rio so we can visit Porcao more than once compared to a tourist visiting. Our review is based on multiple visits to Porcao Rios which is located in Flamengo. As the title of the review states, Porcau Rio's is inconsistently average. We have never had a terrible meal there but we have never had... More
