Excellent choice of all you can eat for meat.

One of the best barbecue houses I've ever been. Highly recommended! Good location and easy access, great salad table, nice selection of wines and types of meat.

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

Barbacoa is a traditional "rodizio churrascaria"in Sao Paulo. An extensive variety of very good barbecue options served in rodizio style. Even the vegetarians will not be badly served here. There is a huge buffet of salads and side dishes as complement to the barbecue. Try to go during the week days since most of the customers will be people in... More

One of the best places for meat lovers. Quality and quantity. Have lunch and forget about the afternoon, take your time. If you are in São Paulo having enough days for a few meals you can not spare this one. Very nice service. Long and competent wine list.

Super nice Restaurant if you love meat. There is a huge salad bar with cheese etc in the middle of the room. So perfect for vegetarians. Then the waiters bring you different kinds of meet, Rice, etc and cut it down in front of you. Was a great lunch.

I've been in the Barbacoa for a business dinner, and, as usual, you do expect to be brought in a decent or good place with lot of room and less good food. So I've been surprised reading the menu and wine list, but, most of all, I've been surprised by the "appetizer salad buffet" Actually this is a long cabaret... More
