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.

A scenic view. Not my kind of place, since I prefer small bistrots, carefully prepared food, little details in every dish and item of the table, cozy atmosphere. But if you want to feed friends or family of the type that want to eat a lot, this is a good restaurant

This is one of the most expensive churrascarias in Rio and used to be one of the best. Unfortunately, the service is now terrible and the meat is not that great anymore. There's a salad buffet with some other side dishes, but nothing much comparing to other restaurants. The only thing that is still great there is the view, but... More

Amazing buffet with lots of choice between salads, hot vegetables, risottos and even sushis Meat - the purpose of the dinner - was good but there was not much choice. Many times the waiters would propose the same type of meats. Perhaps it was because we went on Sunday evening and the place was quite empty For the same price,... More

Porcao isn't what it used to be... Great meat, but too varying quality. The sushi is a laugh, at least when we were there one evening in the end for July 2014. The service, however, was exellent!
