Good meat at a good price

Classic meat 'rodizio': free flow salad buffet + loads of different meets coming to your table! The salad buffet quality fine, but don't get too much as you need to leave space for the really important part of the meal: the picanha! Try to avoid chicken, livers and that short of things.

Authentic great Meat spot. Hidden in a secondary street in Ipanema area this would deliver you some of the best, rodizio style, meat cuts you'll have in you life.

This restaurant is following the steps of the whole chin of well known steakhouses in Rio de Janeiro. After an apparent split in the society, the quality of the food dropped in a drastic way, but the prices went up absurdly. Cold meat, low quality steak, almost confusong service, not worth going, despite the lovely view of the bay and... More

I'm from Rio so I definitely find this place a little touristy. But it's not a tourist trap as you may think. The food is very good and service always great! Their buffet is rich and delicious! steak cooked to perfection! Not to mention the amazing view of Rio de Janeiro's bay.
