Don't leave for home without going to a decent churrasqueria. This is what Brazil is famous for. This one was just sublime, each cut of meat was so tender and tasty, it was difficult to decide which was your favourite. You need to be quick with turning your coin (green means 'I want more' red is 'I'm ok, for now').... More

We were on a business trip and it was also my birthday, and we were with some german partners, so we decided to take them to Barbacoa because it was quite famous for its beef. It is expensive (not so much for São Paulo, though), but it's worth every penny. The food was awesome and the service unsurprisingly nice.

Among the famous Churrascarias in São Paulo this one is certainly worth the visit. Excellent buffet, nice restaurant and fantastic meat.

The best meat in town. The restaurant is very classy yet modern and I feel very good in there. The atmosphere is relaxed and elegant. The buffet is of top quality and very fresh. The products top. Service very friendly and professional. The wine card is huge although a bit expensive. My favorite restaurant in all São Paulo.

The décor, the service, and especially the food are all the best at Barbacoa in Sao Paulo. I always go there for dinner when in Sao Paulo, even if just for a day... I have been there so many times over the years I've lost count. For me they have the best meat (especially Picanha) of any other Rodizio I've... More

my fav rodizio restaurant in São Paulo. Fogo is also good of course but Barbacoa is more elegant in my opinion. Timeless class!

This restaurant is fabulous!! I went to Barbacoa with a colleague, and we were not disappointed. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant is great!! First, we ordered a couple of drinks from the bar. I was very pleased that the drinks were strong and not watered down which is typical for most bars in nice restaurants. We then proceeded... More

What can I say the most amazing salad bar, followed by the most amazing meat, and grilled cheese balls. It's a little expensive,but great for treat!

If you are looking for a good churrascaria, Barbacoa will fit the bill. The ambiance is great, very finely furnished restaurant. The salad bar is excellent, with many, many selections including smoked salmon and proscuitto. The meats were very good, especially the picanha, but nobody could remember if we were offered any pork. Lamb, chicken, sausage and chicken hearts along... More

We went to Barbacoa for churrascaria after receiving a recommendation from the front desk staff at our hotel. We started with the salad bar prior to proceeding to the barbequed meats. The various meats are on skewers and waiters bring them to your table. Depending on the colour of your disc, either red or green, the waiter will not /... More
