We eat out most nights and can afford good food. This restaurant is new, clean and modern. The staff are very friendly but lack experience. So what is the problem. It is the food. First it is so salty that after a few bites you are truly risking your health. The food is encrusted with lumps of salt. The only... More

Who lives in South Brasil feels lile home...A selection of salads (buffet) , rice and beans (Brasilian style) and great meats from all kinds (pork, lamb). They bring some fried bananas, mashed potatos and fried polenta on the table. Well... kids never eat so much in USA !!!

Rodizio with excellent quality meats cooked to perfection. Service this time was a little less attentive than before, the cheese breads were cold and the AC was on so high we forewent dessert and hightailed it out into the warm night.

Great meat eaters restaurant with a decent salad bar. Recommend a visit to this high quality establishment. Ask for the Beef Ribs, not on the menu but available on request.

I would not have chosen this restaurant but I went here with a group dinner from work. It was an all inclusive price per person. It included an extensive salad bar. They also brought some small side dishes to the table but you really didn't need these. The bulk of the meal is your choice of as much or as... More

Take your time! We have visited Brazilian restaurants here in the UK and in the USA before but the quality of the meats in the USA is just great. Take your time and enjoy what you have and go easy on the buffet starters and you will enjoy a lovely meal. Great service and not bad value at all given... More

In the middle of a romantic journey, celebrating 8 years married we went with my wife to share a romantic dinner... Our findings: First, please be auto indulgent.. Ask for a caipirinha, it is amazing, cachaça, lemon, lima and a lot of tradition well served. Second, get ready to be surrounded by a massive and furious meat storm ( all... More
