This was one of the best dining experiences we've had. Service, food, location all a 10/10. Make sure you flip your meat card as soon as you sit down. Our only regret is we ate too much salad! We wanted to go back for a second time but we ran out of trip!

Amazing - starve yourself before you go! Great service and even BETTER food! The salad bar had so much more than salad. Loved the capirinhas.

What a great experience. The wine is pricy but good selections. The salad bar is loaded with everything great you can imagine. Fresh, beautiful selections. When you are ready after the salad///appetizer bar the waiters start. They have large sticks of meat, seafood, chicken, pork. One by one they come by and slice whatever is on the stack, you pick...

Come hungry! The salad bar is grand. Staff was very professional. I don't usually need dessert but a touch of sweet was a very nice finish. The floor can be sloppy near the salad bar.

The food was outstanding! The waiter was a little hard to hear over all of the noise so we didn't realize we had even ordered the Valentine's package which cost $90 per person! It did include champagne, a framed picture, a rose, our meal and dessert. It was a very nice place to eat but a little pricey!

This place is not cheap but we had a great meal. The salad bar is very extensive, the service was spot on with the manager coming round to speak to customers and watching over everything we got the feeling it was a well run and slick operation. The meat was excellent although we didn't get offered everything on the list... More

The food was fantastic and presented in a very unusual (for me) way. A fairly large restaurant, the menu is certainly one for meat lovers out there. If you enjoy a great steak, you will love this place.

We were invited to this restaurant as guests of long standing friends who we had not seen for many years. Though living relatively locally this was a first visit for our hosts as well. We met at 5.30 and left at 9.30. This meant that we spent an awful lot of time catching up and chatting away. This didn't phase... More
