The Best Beef I've Ever Tasted!

Fancier Dining a short taxi drive from our hotel. The meat was all imported from Uruguay and slow cooked and spiced and was the tastiest beef I've ever eaten. Multiple selections of meats, salads and desserts from which to whet your palate. There is not a bad choice in the house!

If you want to eat good meat, this is a good choice. Ask for uruguaio beef. Farofa is the best side dish; all others are medium to weak, poor in fact. The waiting room is the most beautiful space; the main room need new chairs; I have tried 3...all with arm rest broken. Dessert is really poor.

Mr. Marcelo, good afternoon, thank you for your time to evaluate us and concepts. Considered the problem of the chairs so we apologize and we have taken action. Sorry you did not like our desserts. The question is whether all of them have been tried as recently we were awarded by an important gastronomic magazine highlighting our meat and desserts.... More

I have been coming to this area for business travel for three years and this is the first time I visited El Uruguayo. All the staff that we dealt with were very nice and welcoming. No issues at all with the service. The food was really great, they give you a basket of various breads and an assortment of condiments... More

Service is good as well the food. The steaks in general are big for women and children. In general we ask 2 for three and an appetizer and a entreé for a couple.

This restaurant can stand out in a crowd of full of Brazilian "all-you-can-eat" and "Rodizio" style options, and will likely come out a top scoring winner. The menu is composed of typical Uruguayan and Argentine specialties, served appetizer style, as main course, or in portions large enough to share. Cuts that can only be found in certain places such as... More

This place has one of the best meat I ever had. Everything we ordered was cooked perfect and with great flavour. All the entrees and sides were also delicious, as well as the deserts (panqueque de dulce de leche!!!). This place is even better than most of the famous argentinian/barbecue places in Sao Paulo. Definetellu worth the visit!

Located in Alphaville/Barueri, is about 24 km from Ibirapuera park - just for reference, and will cost you about 2USD in toll due the only way to go to Alphaville area. Do not trust the GPS, once into the street, pay attention to the number. My GPS drove me to the end of the street forcing me to drive another... More

Have eaten here several times. Atmosphere is nice but not comfortable. Very loud main dining room. Nice to see the steaks prepared, though. Love the steak. Best steak I've ever had. The grilled vegetables are winderful, especially the young palmetto! Best thing there is the amazing cheese...it comes in molten balls in what looks like an escargot tray. This cheese... More

My first review wasn't exactly great, but after the management responded in a very open, positive way, we simply gave the restaurant and it's team another chance. And I'm truly glad we did! Actually, we have already returned twice, and I'm sure this time wasn't the last one. The service was very attentive, professional and super friendly, and we felt... More
