It's been over a decade since my last visit. But the basic concept remains the same; lots of meat, served on long skewers; combined with cocktails, music and dancing. Just bring the guests and you're sure to have a fun evening. Ideal experience for the carnivore, less so for vegetarians or pescatarians, although there are palatable options. Try to go... More

We went to the Fourways branch and it was absolutely lovely. The service was excellent , the food was great , the entertainment was superb, the music and atmosphere was most enjoyable. Loved every minute of the evening. It was carnival night and the costumes were breathtaking.

I visited this Brazilian eatery in Bedfordview for dinner. I opted for the house speciality – Meat Rodizio. I love my meat and I really enjoyed the cuts of meat on offer - but I cannot eat too much of it. I was there on a Wednesday evening so there was no dancing at the venue but there was quite... More

We went there having heard of their Rodizio meat special, which I ordered but wasn't too please about it. The meat was prepared nicely, but the service was slow, so I ended up waiting for the next cut of meat to arrive. (Even though the restaurant wasn't even that busy) The ribs had almost no meat on it though, but... More

It's a great party place with a great show and dancing afterwards. One of the few places you can still go and dance the night away. The food is acceptable and the service is great.

We had a birthday function and it was good. we chose the traditional meal with all the cuts of meat. I don't think I had value for money at all, the meat was fry and the guys didn't come often with the cuts.. There was this couple that danced for everyone which was nice, when I got the bill I...

2nd visit. Excellent food, brilliant service. We all had the signature dish Meat Rodizio. Absolutely divine - a selection of meats on skewers are brought to the table and cut to choice. Delicious sides also served. Very busy on weekends so if you want a quieter meal get there at about 6. Need to book on weekends.

Had dinner here with family and friends on a Saturday night for the first time. At the Bedfordview branch that is. It's on the upper level of a shopping centre. There's disabled parking and a lift, as well as a disabled toilet on the lower level of the shopping centre. After hours if you need to use the bathroom you... More

Great food and fantastic cocktails help to make this venue a great place for celebrations. We have taken overseas visitors there and they have been blown away by the whole experience, especially for the meat eaters as the meat just keeps on coming until you surrender! Great place to go as a group, the more the merrier
