This restaurant is very expensive. It is brazilian steak house, but it is very expensive. Very good, but very expensive. But the place where it is has a wonderful view and it is a natural park called Aterro do Flamengo or Flamengo embankment, designed by Burle Marx. There you can see the sugar loaf Mountain and Guanabara Bay. Very beautiful.

This was an unforgettable culinary experience - best churrasqueria I've been to. The meat is not the only amazing thing there - don't forget to go to the salad bar and try the sushi and everything else they have. Leave room for plenty of food! The view is also stunning. EAT. MEAT. MORE. MEAT.

I was there in 2007 and still think about the baby picanha ! For sure the best churrascaria I went to in Brazil. Location and setting is fantastic as well.

A few nights before we tried the Fogo de Chao and frankly the Porcao is nothing compared to that one, even if she spent the same amount of money. Beyond the meat itself which wasn't anything special, the interior design looks very old. Last but not least, it took 40 minutes to get a cab to go away from there,... More

Great food, the best churrascaria we tried in Rio. We went again in our last night in Rio because it worth it. We tried other 2 places and it was the best. The view of Pao de Azucar is amazing. Very recommended.

You should try this type of restaurant at least once if you are in Rio. The salad buffet is great! Lots to choose from and the food looks and tastes great. Then there is the meat. As much as you want, the staff is walking around with the excellent meat all the time. If you like some more? Make sure... More

Porcão is, in my opinion, the best steak-house in Rio de Janeiro, and perhaps the whole world. I am brazilian, but some American and German friends share the same opinion. Porcão has about 5 steak-houses in Rio. The best location is Porcão Rio´s, due to the very nice view of Rio de Janeiro. I have to say that it is... More
