Me and my family (we are all brazillians) went here after a tiring trip and it was way more than we expected! Before we came here we checked the tripadvisor reviews and even after reading some frustrating comments we decided to try it anyway, and it was worthy! Great meat, rice beans and farofa! I had experienced some similiar steakhouses... More

Saw this restaurant from my Hotel window and decided to give it a try. I've been to many similar restaurants like this in the US which I enjoyed, and this did not disappoint. The salad bar was excellent, but I think the election of meats was lacking a bit. Overall, the service was good. The price was on the high... More

On our first night in Costa Rica, we decided to go to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. I was shocked when we had to pay 107,000 Colones (roughly US$214) for three dinners, 6 beers and 2 desserts. This is terrible value. We had much better meals in other restaurants in Costa Rica for 1/3 that amount.... More

I like to go to the Fogo Brazil, whenever I am in Costa Rica. I love the Brazilian concept of paying a fixed prize for the food and then be able to eat as much as I like. The food is good, no question about that and the experience is like in many Churrascarias in Brazil. What is not so... More

OK, this is a typical Brazilian BBQ, the meat is great. You get what you like and it gets served properly, however the marketing and advertising sometimes is deceiving. You see ads for 30% or 50% off, but they never tell you that for example desert is not included. We ordered one slice of cake and got charged 6 to... More

I liked the variety in meat and the service. Did not like the "abundancy" of loud US citizens with their CR "girl friends"

Everyone told me that it's the best... but not for me... it's OVERRATED. Smoothies great, deserts good... variety in salads great... meat, almost 10 types of meat including chicken (disappointed for me)... $50 rodizio + drinks + desserts don't worth the money for me... you get the same for less money in other places... Service was great, no doubt of... More

If you like meat; it is excellent. Great atmosphere and endless meat on a skewer brought to your table. We're vegetarians and, although they advertise seafood, our wait was incredibly long. Great salad bar & desserts.

Basically it is exactly like the US Fogo de Chows and other Brazilian Churasscos. Cost is $50 per person (they add in tip) without drink or desert. Lots of meat to your table and salad bar. If traveling or at home I always enjoy this overeating experience but feel like I would rather pay for one amazing rib-eye or tenderloin... More

We would have been better off eating at a local soda. We arrived and were offered the buffet including the tableside meat but the meat was tough and the buffet dishes were ok but nothing to get too excited about, and we were never told that drinks and desert was not included in the price. I assumed ( my fault... More
