We read (and heard) that this was the best place in Rio for rodizio (also found only in Brazil), so we headed here. It is a great buffet. It has a salad and a sushi station (one station for each). You also have feijoada. The quality of the rodizio was amazing. The beef cuts were tender and tasty. We must... More

We made reservations through our hotel a couple of days in advance since we had a party of 11. The restaurant was supposed to email me a confirmation, but 24 hours passed and no email. I asked the hotel to call for me again to confirm and they were able to do so (wrote me a slip of hotel stationary... More

Perfect location with clear view of the Sugarloaf from your dining table. Delicious side dishes, the best tabouli I've had. Meats are perfectly cooked, juicy and tasty. Be on the lookout for the prime rib as it is marvelous here. They have also a good sushi bar with rolls and sashimi. Also ask your waiter for some banana with sugar... More

Visitors who ask for good meat are often sent here. The interior is a little like a large cafe with tablecloths. Quite friendly service but, on the whole, an expensive evening unless you are capable of eating vast quantities of meat. The salads etc. are extensive and quite good. Desserts disappointing. Wine good. Tip: apparently the best meats are served... More

We went as a family (2+4), and had a great churrasco experience! A bit on the expensive side as a family, but worth it for food quality and location

Amazing meat, amazing service. Quite expensive, but worth every penny. Don't waste your time on anything other than the red meat.

We asked the desk where "the best" Brazilian steakhouse would be and they said Porcao. At the time, the exchange rate was wildly in our U.S. favor and we enjoyed this meal for a totally reasonable price. They had a ton of "cold" options including fresh sushi, salads, fruits, veggies. The meat was super salty (as it's supposed to be)... More
