Absolutely fantastic!

This is a great resturant to go to if you really want to eat delicious food. The meet you get served is so amazing that it is hard to imagine how great it is. Be careful to not eat yourself filled up at the salat bar :)

I just went last week with three customers. Chima is always consistently good. I've eaten at these types of restaurants several times in Brazil and I still think Chima is better. The quality of meat is much better at Chima. FYI - the beef short rib is outstanding. They have one of the largest salad bars I have seen at... More

Compared to real Brazilian restaurants in Rio, this was not very good. Limited amount of meet served, and price per person is ridicules. Not worth the money spend. Will definitely not come back.

Brazil is famous for "Churrasco" . I am constantly searching for restaurants that live up to the gaucho style rodizios throughout the world and while I am hesitant to say there is a best above all...this one definitely ranks amongst the best I have tried. They incorporate a very peaceful and relaxing setting, the staff is more than willing to... More

Great place if you like to taste a lot of different kind of meats. Typical Brazilian Steak House where they cut slices of meat directly into your plate. Great buffet for the salads and side dishes. The food is very fresh. I will definitely be back.

We had the best night at this restaurant. Amazing food. My favorite was the lamb. We had such a nice vaiter at our service all the time. Prepare for this experience and remember to arrive really hungry. Taste all the different types of meat. You will love this place. MUST GO there If you are In Fort Lauderdale.

Love this Brazilian restaurant. They do have a wonderful salad bar with a lot of different options. The servers are very good especially the one with the picanha (that is our favorite). Always a great experience and wonderful food. Staff is outstanding and managers check frequently with diners to make sure we have everything we want.
