I was recommended Porcao by a friend so my wife and I decided to try it out on our last night in Rio. It's quite a grand place (huge inside) and is nicely situated right on the bay in Flamengo (not that we could really take it in in the dark). We had a nice welcome and were shown around... More

Large salad bar but seemed a little old and wilted. The meat was bright often but very salty which killed the taste. Good drinks. Dessert excellent.

I was here with a bunch of travellers from around the world and we all agreed that is one of the best meals we've had in South America. Amazing meats, superb salads and starters. Definitely a must in Rio!

Porcao Rio´s was for many years the best "churrascaria" in Rio. Churrascaria is a kind of restaurant "All You Can Eat" in terms of steaks and every type of meat you can get from a cow, lamb, chicken, pork. You have also diferente kind of salads, potatoes, rice, black beans,... Porcao has become the worst restaurant in Rio due to... More

I visited with a group of American business travelers as part of an event, after visiting Sugar Loaf. There were about 100 of us and aside from feeling like we would be herded in like cattle, I was surprised to see a group of waiters handing out Caphrinhas, as soon as we disembarked from the tour buses. The banquet-style seating... More

We visited here when in rio as it was recommended by a Brazilian friend. The food was good and is your traditional Brazilian BBQ with as much as you can eat meat from the skewers with a wide selection on the cold and hot buffet which was well prepared. The restaurant is in a nice location by itself next to... More

The location is just amazing with a view of the lagoon and Pão de Açúcar. Food is delicious, service could not be better. You have to try the desserts specially strawberries and cream. Is expensive but it is worth it.

Way too expansive for buffet (eat as much as you can) & let's face it, I have eaten way much better meat in South America.. In 116R and it doesn't include drinks or deserts. I'd prefer to save my money and go to a good restaurant which I order the meat I really want.

Granted there are plenty of Churrasqueria all over Brasil and here in Rio. but you get a few things here: 1.... More
