This restaurant specializes in the Brazilian rotisserie meat. But they have a wonderful salad bar and dessert bar. They are pricey, so you have to eat lots for the one price. You can eat all the meat you want, so don't pig out on the salad bar--and save space for the wonderful desserts!

This is a truly excellent restaurant, with a clear focus on excellent food and an engaging atmosphere. I was here with a number of colleagues for a meal that turned into a celebratory encounter with delights for carnivores! This place is about meat, meat and more meat. All delicious and all cooked to perfection. The sale bar was also outstanding,... More

Service was impeccable! The food was delicious. My boyfriend and I have been to multiple churasscaria's in New York, Florida, and South Carolina and this honestly tops them all. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

If you are a fan of meat, don't miss this place. The buffet is complete, with lots of salads, cold dishes, sauces. And the star of the house, the meat, is impeccable. Don't miss the BIFE DE TIRA, PICANHA, PICANHA NOBRE, BABY BEEF. Try also the BIRO BIRO RICE, which is a mix of white rice, stick potato, scrambled eggs,... More

Went for a late lunch with a large group, and coming from Canada was very excited for a real Brazillian BBQ, and it surpassed our expectations. The service is outstanding, very attentive. The salad bar was wonderful with many fresh and tempting treats - so many different items to pick from, including fresh seafood. The meats that came around were... More

Incredible buffet including row fish, very good caipirinha, and of course the best meat tasted in a long time. Just try to skip the lunch if you go there for dinner...

Go early in the evening, maybe 7 or 7:30 when the restaurant is quiet and you have more time left in the night to digest what's going to be a very full meal. The salad bar has an extensive selection, with high end items such as artichoke hearts, thick hearts of palm, endive, caviar even. The spinach salad, caesar salad... More

Take your time. Make multiple visits to the grand salad and appetizer bar, which has very fresh items such as bright watercress, and perfectly ripe tomatoes, and high end items such as prosciutto, and aged cheeses. Barbacoa goes all out with the salad bar, and if you're worried about getting full before you start on the meat course, don't. Take... More
