Cannot compare to others but I thought it was good. Price seemed a bit high but they did have free transportation to and from the hotel which helps with cost. Meats were delicious! Salad bar was very good. Desserts were great! Lack of English speakers is a bother. Additional charges for basic drinks (soda, sparkling water) was annoying but maybe... More

It may not be the best churrascuria in São Paulo but it's consistently good. It's a place where you can walk in on your own and just eat and enjoy or you can go in a large group. The staff are very friendly and it's non-inhibitive here which I like. You won't get the biggest choice of cuts of meat... More

We visited this restaurant 5 times this month - each time for lunch. There is a reason we kept going back. The food is great, the restaurant is very clean and some of the items on the buffet change daily. We rate this Bovinus as "best value churascaria" in Sao Paulo because it has a terrific combination of taste, selection,... More

There are several named churascaria restaurants in Sao Paulo, I ended up in this one with some coleagues. We where a group of 8 and got a nice tabel. Service was very good and fast. Drinks and saladbar where OK, but the main attraction is the meat. Well I must say the quality was impressive. Good meat, well cooked nicely... More

Good was good. Large buffet with good variety of meats, vegetables and prepared dishes. Need to tell chef at the grill exactly how you want your meat or you'll wind up with a over cooked piece. Deserts were excellent and the fruit was fresh. Price was reasonable for a buffet. Waite staff was very attentive.

As the prices for food in Sao Paulo went up, por quilo restaurants are offering "cheaper options" but this restaurant did not follow this direction. You will pay little more but you will get complete selection of meat cuts and great selection of salads.

This is a chain of Churascaria type restaurants. They are clean and friendly. It's a buffet starter with everything you can imagine salad wise and other lovely starters. The same for pudding. You go up to the chefs and they cut the meat off for you as many times as you like. Every meat available inc chicken hearts and fish.... More

Bargain price, basic food and ok quality. Cafe like environment nothing extravagant. Wine also very basic but also cheaply priced. A bargain night out but no ambience.
