My favorite churascaria in Sao Paulo. Great place, good selection of beef, plus lamb, sausage, chicken, and pork. Good salad bar and selection of other side dishes. If you're a meat lover, this place is worth a try.

The ambience was great, whether for business or pleasure. The food was excellent, fresh and plentiful (come hungry)!! The selection of salads, cold meats, cheeses and other nibbles was great but be careful not to fill up too much as the selection of meats and other side dishes brought to the table is also fantastic. Leave a little space (if... More

I am a meat lover myself and I wanted to take my husband to experience the environment and taste the meat in a Brazilian steakhouse aka churrascaria. We were taken to Barbacoa and I have only good things to say from the ambiance, the quality and variaty of meat , salad buffet and friendly staff , everything was top notch.

Barbacoa was chosen for our group of 30+ by locals and it was a great pick. The salad bar had many choices, the types of meat offered were too numerous to count, the desserts were excellent and the service was impeccable. With wine, the cost per person was $50-60 US but the evening was an experience that all of us... More

This is a great Brazilian steakhouse. The food quality is top notch and the wine cellar is quite complete. Now I know why this is a favorite for local people.

Simply a must go if you're in São Paulo. It will be definitely a memorable experience. From a huge salad bar buffet, then diving to flawless meat cuts and finishing with great deserts (papaya cream) - it is just great. All under friendly staff and cosy ambience. Really enjoyed and truly recommend!

I live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, so eating churrasco (barbecue) is one of the choices visiting our country. Although we have several restaurants specialized, my preference is Barbacoa. There is a nice table with salads, seafood and different options. The wines are of good quality. They usually serve only first class meat as ancho beef, picanha, maminha, etc. The price... More

For me one of the best churrasco in town no dout bout it. Service is professional and the variety of meat is amazing. No taxi outside and difficult to call.
