What can I say the most amazing salad bar, followed by the most amazing meat, and grilled cheese balls. It's a little expensive,but great for treat!

If you are looking for a good churrascaria, Barbacoa will fit the bill. The ambiance is great, very finely furnished restaurant. The salad bar is excellent, with many, many selections including smoked salmon and proscuitto. The meats were very good, especially the picanha, but nobody could remember if we were offered any pork. Lamb, chicken, sausage and chicken hearts along... More

We went to Barbacoa for churrascaria after receiving a recommendation from the front desk staff at our hotel. We started with the salad bar prior to proceeding to the barbequed meats. The various meats are on skewers and waiters bring them to your table. Depending on the colour of your disc, either red or green, the waiter will not /... More

Loads of fresh, tender, juicy and tasty meat. Pork, chicken, beef in all imaginable cuts, only tastier. Meat flows and flows and you want to never have to use your red button that signals the waiters to stop the rodizio feeding frenzy. Excellent service not for vegans.

I've been to churrascaria in the US, but this was my first time going to one in Brazil. My co-workers took me out to dinner here. It was so much food. Let me give a pro-tip. Don't eat a lot during the day. You need space for all the beef. Barbacoa had many different cuts of meat, more than what... More

I had lunch at the Barbacoa as a business visitor and must say it would one very good reason for coming back! The meat is simply amazing - I could have eaten and eaten..... and the salad bar is really quite incredible. The staff was friendly and helpful, given my non-existent Portuguese. Highly recommended!

A reason for visiting São Paulo. The food is wonderful - if you like meat! Save room for the better cuts, pace yourself and enjoy. I really liked the service and a good quality wine list

I have been to a few Churrascarias in Sao Paulo and I would have to say that this is the nicest one I've been to. The meat was amazing, the salad bar was clean and always well stocked. The wait staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. The decor was nice, and for what you got, the price was quite reasonable.... More

This restaurant specializes in the Brazilian rotisserie meat. But they have a wonderful salad bar and dessert bar. They are pricey, so you have to eat lots for the one price. You can eat all the meat you want, so don't pig out on the salad bar--and save space for the wonderful desserts!
