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

It's a tipical brazilian steakhouse. It's very good, but more expensive than most others just because of the view. Even other Porcao's are cheaper and just as good (the very same food and service actually).

What makes this a good restaurant to go is really the good quality of the meat served and the very nice view, if you get a good table

Porcao´s unlimited buffet is an amazing feast for the eyes and stomach. The cold salad bar has a wide range of dishes, which are good but not amazing. However, the vast variety of meat is incredible and of great quality. A great experience to go with friends, on a date or with family. Go during the day so you can... More

Meat being the main reason to go, it cannot disappoint although starters were more diversified and tasty a few years ago. As people and groups come and go ( it is a top spot for people waiting to board a flight at Rio Santos Dumont airport) you have the feeling of a fast food with much much better quality. In... More
