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

Yes meat was reasonable, salad bar assorted and abundant, service always there by the table ready to fill glasses, take aways beer bottles even before they were empty... ambiance correct in lightning, space between tables,...but for some reason I felt like I was in a banal, common, ordinary place, nothing to catch me, surprise me or even satisfy me.

WOW, where to start? Amazing meat, amazing service (The changed my plate maybe 3-4 times), amazing buffet with vegetables, fish, seafood, cheese and so much more. No doubt, one of the best restaurants I have visited. The restaurant is not cheap, so be ready to leave ~160 BRL (~50 USD) per person, but to my opinion it worth it Vegetarians... More
