I had lunch at the Barbacoa as a business visitor and must say it would one very good reason for coming back! The meat is simply amazing - I could have eaten and eaten..... and the salad bar is really quite incredible. The staff was friendly and helpful, given my non-existent Portuguese. Highly recommended!

A reason for visiting São Paulo. The food is wonderful - if you like meat! Save room for the better cuts, pace yourself and enjoy. I really liked the service and a good quality wine list

I have been to a few Churrascarias in Sao Paulo and I would have to say that this is the nicest one I've been to. The meat was amazing, the salad bar was clean and always well stocked. The wait staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. The decor was nice, and for what you got, the price was quite reasonable.... More

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

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
