Its location is amazing, you can have a landscape on the entire Guanabara Bay, but remember you go there for the meat. Immediately after have been accompanied at the table and ordering a drink, began to get the meat. The first cut is not so good, a heated picanha very hard and salty. All the following have been better and... More

I went to this resataurant with three friends during a recent trip to Rio. I had been here about 10 years ago; and at that time I was amazed at the quality and diversity of meats. This is/was a carnivore's heaven. This time, however, I found most cuts to be overcooked and the variety to be deminished. The food is... More

I guess this is the place to go if one wants to try many varieties of meat, prepared in the typical Brazilian fashion. One should prepare for this outing by missing lunch on the day. The meal starts with copious varieties of salads and tasters from an expansive buffet. The danger here is that there is no room left for... More

I am usually really understanding with people and service, and try to be nice to waiters specially when they're very busy. but that was too much! It was a monday so there was no excuse for the lack of gentleness of the waiters, there lots of waiters doing literally nothing. They all seemed to ignore when I called them, and... More

I went here for lunch. The meats are of good quality. While I should have focus on the meat, the chicken & the pork are however taste better :).

I found the place very overpriced. The dishes at the buffet were poorly made. Great view but really everyone who loves food should not go there. All you can eat. But you dont want to.

Both the food and the location are the best. You can see the sugar loaf while eating, it´s so nice! The food is awesome, the famous Brazilian churrasco!

This restaurant was recommended by a Brazilian girl we met in Peru. The quality of the meats were amazing and the variety of salads and sushis were great! This was by far my favorite churrascaria in Brazil. Highly recommend this place.

We had a great dinner here, and it really is all you can eat!! The pre- dinner buffet is extraordinary, a meal in itself (with great, but simple sushi) and the variety of skewered meats is unbelievable. To get your money's worth, pace yourself and be very hungry. It is a few minutes ride from Sugar Loaf, which we visited... More

I was so looking forward to going to a churrascaria on this trip to Brazil. My experience in Rio before was very memorable. I was so disappointed, as this was very much a tourist trap and probably not where the locals would go. There was plenty of meat but not as tender as we expected. It was over priced. The... More
