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

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!
