The main rule - be careful and don`t take every part of meat, which will be proposed from waiters.

I've been here 3 times, and the service and quality are consistently best in class. The salad/appetizer bar is exceptional, drinks menu is expansive (try the Colorado bottled beer), and of course the barbecue is the best I've ever had. Truly a world class dining experience. Service is absolutely attentive in every way. Arrive around 7:00pm to avoid busiest time... More

We visited here last night as a group of 5. We were seated very quickly, had the salad bar explained to us along with the green/red tokens and then set free. The salad bar was VERY extensive, leaves, veg, seafood etc, if you didn't eat meat, you would be more than happy with the salad bar alone! We didn't sample... More

Lunch at this restaurant was top notch!! The meat was really awesome, with my favorite the ribs. Absolutely decadent. The waiters were fun, attentive, and offered a huge variety of different meats to try. The salad bar was amazing as well. Don't fill up on it however, as you really need room for all the awesome meats. Best food ever.... More

Our first experience with Brazilian barbecue, and we definitely recommend it. Rustic atmosphere with dark wood, yet at the same time surprisingly chic for an all-you-can-eat barbecue, with white tablecloths and excellent service. The salad buffet is large and very appetising, the meat delicious. As described by others, you can indicate with a green-and-red chip whether you want more meet.... More

Our first trip to Brazil and we had to eat Churrascaria before we leave for home. Barbecue was recommended by friends who work in Sao Paulo. We came for lunch on Sunday. Classy interior with dark wood panels. The meats were fantastic! Soft, fragrant and juicy. Each of us was given a small card picture which showed the names of... More

The Barbacoa in Sao Paulo is a definite must especially for those who like meat. It is a classic eat as much meat as you can stomach with a number of other sides also being brought around for you to choose. One of the great surprises was the extensive salad bar. Truly this was piled high with everything you would... More

This place has "food coma guarantee" - at least for people that love meat. Great meat, great salads, great dessert.

Very nice restaurant in the fancy part of the city. This is traditional Brazilian non-stop meat coming concept (churrascaria). The variety is good, quality is high, the service is good in general. Expect to pay around 200-250 Reales per person. Definitely a good experience.
