This is a meat temple. The quality of the food is just amazing and the service is outstanding. As usual as long as you dont turn your token to the red side, they keep serving you. I can only repeat that indeed this is probably on,e of the best meats in the world and that their caipirinhas, made with old... More

We were escorted to a very conformable table and advice over drinks and they were very happy to prepare special refreshment when requested. at the salad bar... More

Had a business dinner with 6 colleagues on a MON night. I was the "junior person" present. I have eaten at around 6 churrascarias in Brazil over the past 10 months. Outstanding beef. The very first cut they brought out was 2 inch cubes of filet mignon. The salad bar was impressive (I had to partake of a little bit... More

Definitely one of the best meats I've tasted ... they grilled it to perfection. They also serve some pretty exotic seafood, along with a really nice salad buffet. On the pricier side, but definitely worth a visit when in SP.

I visisted this resturant twice in one week- the environment is cozy, friendly and inviting. The food is really very tatsy - as usual the huge variety of meat necessary for such a tradional resturant (Picanha is deligious and juicy) is present and correct! The salad bar is amazing, including fresh greens, fruits, fish, even sushi. And the deserts choice... More

We have eaten in here many times, the food and service is excellent, price is very good. Huge array of fresh salads to cater for everybody, wonderful pao de quejo, Brasilian BBQ, just order what cut and meat you want, and eat as much as you like. I would advise on booking as it's very popular.

I have been here are two occasions over the last year and I have thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and experience on both occasions. The meal is around R$ 100 a per person and is all you can eat. There is a huge salad/cold foods bars with everything from greens, to smoked meats, sushi and fruits. In addition to this,... More

Full of mouth-watering set of steaks and meat. I'ved tried two Barbacoas in Tokyo but those locations are nothing compared to this genuine Sao Paulo HQ. A Paulista friend of mine who treated us with this unforgettable lunch warned us beforehand that "you should not eat salad". This was true. The quality and the variations of the BBQ should be...

meat places are very common in brazil, and the rodizio stile, meaning there are several pieces of meat running thru the saloon and you will be offered constantly to taste distinct flavors, as much as you can eat, is the local attraction. this particular restaurant, in a fancy area (itaim) displays very good salads and side dishes and specially kind...

I have tried almost all renowned barbecues in Sao Paulo and Rio, and Barbacoa is the champion. The ambiance is perfectly planned, comfortable with indirect lighting and fancy tables, though not excessively formal. Service is awesome, attentive and professional. The buffet is great, with varieties of cheese, black olive, prosciutto, salads, and much more. Between the meet, don't forget to... More
