We were at Porcao Rio's for Sunday lunch, in August, with a couple of foreigners friends (they loved our meat...)... It is located inside Aterro do Flamengo, scenary view of Baía da Guanabara, easy parking lot... Restaurant was full, so we waited on a separate room, getting drinks, not so much time... Meat Rodizio system and a large cold buffet... More

This is the best churrascaria in town! All kinds of meats come straight to your table and there's a wonderful salad, hot dishes and japanese food all-you-can-eat buffet. The restaurant sits on Guanabara Bay's side so you have a priviledged view to the Sugar Loaf. They offer a children' special room, with toys and a recreator, making life much easier... More

The environment is quite sad and old fashion. I remembered one in Botafogo or Flamengo quite nicer but this one is tremendous. Service is ok but the food is very bad: meat was fat and we had to refuse many times before having picaña or baby beef and I can assure that this meat was not upscale. The person I... More

You have never been to a barbecue house like this! This is just the best food you could ever dream of. There are all kinds of food, including salads and Japanese, but the best is the typical food from Brazil as well as the best barbecue in the world.!!! If you don`t eat there you just lost the best meal... More

Excellent rodizio, meat is perfectly cooked and served in several types, but this is probably known to anyone. What is astonishing is that for about 40 euro you also get a very good service and a buffet menu with any kind of vegetables, side dishes and even sushi! Just one recommendation: go there with a big appetite.

If you had been in any Brazilian churrascaria in the US and you loved it, in here you will love it even more, to start with the location is fantastic, right in front of the Guanabara Bay, you can see the beach and the boats, also from the restaurant you can see the sugar loaf. The salad bar is quite... More

Not for the faint hearted, what a great experience. Meat, meat and then more meat...only if you want it and you token is green. I would recommend you try it if you can and have a couple of their great cocktails to rinse it all down. There is every sort of meat you could image cooked in so many ways.... More

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.
