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.

We wanted a good restaurant close to our hotel and, strolling around, we came to this one. We dine early, so seating was no problem. We were pressured to buy the 'all you can eat' option but declined. The waiter and hostess pretended not to speak English; my Spanish was just good enough to get our requests across. Service was...

Four of us went to dinner, the bill was over $200 and we didn't even order a glass of wine or a dessert. The staff was brusque, pretended not to understand our questions and when we said the giant banner on the outside said "dessert included for $20", they just smiled and said "NO". The salad bar was average, the... More
