Live it up in this meat lovers paradise!

We came to celebrate our daughters 7th birthday. We were allowed to bring our own cake (nice of them). We sat in a table in the right rear corner of the restaurant. The place is deceptive, because it doesn't look that big from the outside. The vibe is electric and it did get a little loud, but... read more

Visited during the Boatshow so made a reservation - absolutely essential but very easy using the online booking function on their website. Very extensive salad bar - all fresh and succulent. Great meats. After a number of visits I have learned to pace myself with the meats; there is a fantastic choice and it's best just to concentrate on the... More

Chima is a beautiful restaurant with great food and great service. Start off with mashed potatoes, cheese bread and ground meat balls at your table. Then head to their salad bar, that has fresh mozzarella, soup, salads and many other things, but don't eat too much because there is still tones of meat to come. Everything served at Chima is...

We've been going to Chima for about a year now but since moving anytime we're in the area we make a point to visit. It's always an excellent experience. We LOVE the Brazilian fare and the accommodating staff. Though we've always gone as a family, it's kind of perfect for a date night. We've never left disappointed and will be... More

This place is a PLACE. My favorite thing about the restaurant is the giant banyan tree strung with white mini lights. This tree is the entire roof, covering the courtyard space you'll walk through until you see the friendly hosts at reception. Sit for a cocktail under this tree even if you don't stay for dinner. This food will be... More

We've been to Chimas in Fort Lauderdale twice. The second time one goes to a place the apprehension is that it won't meet the expectation of the first good experience. Well, this did not disappoint. It would be very easy to skip the meat and just go for the salad bar which has the very expensive items like palm hearts,... More

Chima is a destination unto itself. You cannot walk to or from here - so take your time and make an evening of it. We had great service and the food was some of the best we had in FL. There is a nice patio area where groups were having cocktails before and after dinner. Great for all ages and... More
