Great food. Go with an empty stomach

The typical rodizio experience (buffet) with everything top quality. Really good food and great service. Go for the meat and the desserts. Amazing

I advise this restaurant to all visitors and meat lovers. This is the best meat i have ever tasted. You can't stop enjoying it. You should try Costella, Cupim as far as i remember.The service is also of a very high class.

Barbacoa is a great restaurant, part of a chain but this site has great atmosphere and good presentation. The salad bar offers a huge choice of different veggie options and salads, fishes etc. However the main event is the beautifully cooked range of beef cuts straight from the BBQ which are presented at your table on skewers and carved in...

I decided to evaluate this restaurant in English because I know that many tourists, when in Sao Paulo, seek for our well known Rodízios (eat all you can!). This one, is where I take my British counterparts when they come to Brazil. Firstly, the salad buffet is amazing - it is even an heresy to call it a salad buffet,... More

Went there recently for a birthday celebration. Salad bar was stupendous, including items such as serrano ham, sushi, sashimi and salad creams prepared by the restaurant itself. The meats are superb, even by the standards of other Sao Paulo "churrascarias" which is really saying something. The service is friendly and attentive without becoming intrusive and drinks are reasonably priced. Valet... More

The restaurant is large with white table cloths and the wait staff are very professional in appearance. The large squewers of beef are carved at your table and the different cuts of meat just keep coming as long as you have your green circle up. Flip it to the brown side and the meat stops coming. The salad bar was... More

Coming back to this restaurant after quite a while I was pleased that the quality of the buffet and especially the meat is still top notch and hard to beat. The seasoning of the meat was very good and absolutely everything on the buffet was fresh and looked quite appealing. The Kaiken Malbec of 2011 was matching the meal perfectly... More

Barbacoa is definetelly one of the best barbecue houses in Sao Paulo. The "all you can eat" system called "rodizio" is plenty of delicious meats, apetizers, cheeses and whatever you can imagine! It is expensive, but it is worth! The service is perfect and the place is beautiful!

A good restaurant is a matter of consistency. I've been eating at Barbacoa for some 30 years or more. They have maintained the utmost quality in "churrasco" through the decades. Don't be fooled if someone tells you that "all you can eat" and excellent food don't go together. Barbacoa is the longliving disprove of that. The price is fair, not... More
