First it's over priced, on the salad bar I didn't have anything that i went crazy for, I mean when you pay that much you expect everything to be awesomely delicious, but it was not the case, it wasn't bad it was just average. In the other hand my boyfriend liked eating all that meat however he didn't like the... More

Very complete menu and buffet. Excellent salad bar, side dishes and meat. Not as many cuts as a regular Brazilian steakhouse but well prepared and delicious

Excellent salad bar, side dishes and meat. Not as many cuts as a regular Brazilian steakhouse but well prepared and delicious. Not usually the case with meat in Costa Rica. Be forewarned, however, that this place is not cheap. Roughly $40+ per head for the all you can eat salad bar and meat skewers. Pricey but at least the food... More

In Costa Rica to pay for a couple 170 dollars.... Come on! I think it's crazy. Also it's a American style restaurant, big and not cosy at all. Cheers

Not as many meat choices as most rodizzios but it was all good. And the salad and pasta bars were very tasty. However $50 per person in Costa Rica is really over the top. Marketing to those on expense accounts or wealthy foreigners. Definitely not families or middle class travelers. I now understand that we should have asked our hotel... More

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
