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

Good food, great service. Meat kept on coming and it was as good as any other churrascaria outside of Brazil. Although in Brazil you can get really bad ones too. Buffet could be better but was not too bad and I usually don't hit it too hard to leave more space for meat. Worth a visit.

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

This is a typical Brazilian steakhouse and the choices are very abundant from sushi to tacos. For a fixed price, you eat all that you want from their salad, hot foods and pasta bars as well as the meat options they come to your table with - only drinks and dessert are extra. A few options were good, but the... More

I wouldn't say is the best food, is a buffett. I liked the sushi. I am not a fan of beef so I am not good rating this, the service was good and the pink wine, concerning with enviroment is average, kind of cold, is for bussiness or big families. It was not my style I guess.
