Incredible selection & quality of meat

Been here 3 times and each one was an excellent experience The meats are of excellent quality, the service is also very good, and the overall experience is 9 1/2 out of 10. Only drawback is the long drive from WPB !!

This Brazilian steakhouse is one of the best we have been to. Nice modern atmosphere, welcoming host and wait staff. The salad bar was superior to others with beef carpaccio, Italian prosciutto to name just a few non standard items. Meat service was somewhat slow, but we liked it that way to don't get stuffed too quickly and enjoy the... More

My husband and I decided to have dinner here for our anniversary. The food was good, and the wait staff was very attentive. Our real complaint is parking and the staff who work valet. Self parking is not an option and there is a $5 fee to park. I have no problem with that IF the valet are professional. We... More

Perhaps I was not as over joyed as my son with this restaurant. It was rather good and considering the Quality/Variety of offerings good value. Arrived 10 min prior to the reservation and was seated immediately received efficient service. As it is a Brazilian style grill the ordering process move quickly. I was expecting a reasonably high quality product given... More

We just ate here and celebrated a 25th birthday. They surprised us with a tiramisu dessert and also took and printed a photo of us at the table for us to take home. The atmosphere was very lively and the service was great. Our waiter, waitress and the gentleman serving the meat were all very attentive. All of the meats... More

Thi sis a very busy place so make sure an dgert reservations. The food is excellent, standard Brazilian type Rodizio, but with a nice surprise. They have additional items like Swordfidh you don't see in other places (including Brazil) so that was a nice surprise. The service was excellent, and the Caipiroskas dead-on, like in Brazil. The only nit-pick its... More

First of all, it is set back so you really don't see it from the street. You walk into a beautiful setting with lit banyan trees and wonderful seating for enjoying a cocktail or 2 before dinner. On the weekend you can usually catch Brazilian live music outside. Then into the restaurant you go. It is a Brazilian rodizio with... More

This is our third or fourth brazilian-style restaurant. Very similar to Fogo de Chao and the others. $55 pp was a little more, but service was terrific and of course you walk out more stuffed than you want to. Very cool ambiance inside and out. Sofas and TV's in outside garden while you wait, valet service. Inside was decorated well... More
