Go early in the evening, maybe 7 or 7:30 when the restaurant is quiet and you have more time left in the night to digest what's going to be a very full meal. The salad bar has an extensive selection, with high end items such as artichoke hearts, thick hearts of palm, endive, caviar even. The spinach salad, caesar salad... More

Take your time. Make multiple visits to the grand salad and appetizer bar, which has very fresh items such as bright watercress, and perfectly ripe tomatoes, and high end items such as prosciutto, and aged cheeses. Barbacoa goes all out with the salad bar, and if you're worried about getting full before you start on the meat course, don't. Take... More

I was really impressed at first by the buffet they offer before starting being served the never-ending meat selection. The "cold buffet" includes sashimi, mouthwatering "heart of palm", cold cuts and great selections of salads etc... Concerning the meat, one of the best I have ever tasted in a rodizio, a great selection, very tasty, very generous, they give you... More

A very good service, a very nice meat, we enjoy a lot, if you don't manage your red/green token you can't keep up with so much food.

We were escorted to a very conformable table and advice over drinks and they were very happy to prepare special refreshment when requested. at the salad bar... More

Had a business dinner with 6 colleagues on a MON night. I was the "junior person" present. I have eaten at around 6 churrascarias in Brazil over the past 10 months. Outstanding beef. The very first cut they brought out was 2 inch cubes of filet mignon. The salad bar was impressive (I had to partake of a little bit... More

Definitely one of the best meats I've tasted ... they grilled it to perfection. They also serve some pretty exotic seafood, along with a really nice salad buffet. On the pricier side, but definitely worth a visit when in SP.
