Outstanding Food

We did not have to wait for a table, but got right in on a Thursday night. Had a very good waitress, helpful and always there to give us refills on our drinks. They had a nice salad bar and a small hot food bar. All the meat is brought around to your table and you can pick and choose... read more

My husband and I love going here and enjoying the fun atmosphere, live music on Friday and Saturday nights, and you can choose from a variety of foods so it's not always too expensive for your budge. I always order the Brazilian Pop which is so refreshing. Also suggest the coconut fried bananas - so mouthwatering and delicious! The Salad... More

Carnaval is all about the meat - several different ways of preparing chicken, beef, pork, shrimp....I was full nearly right away. The food was delicious, but you really have to come hungry. Believe it or not, the grilled pineapple was one of the best things we had.

This is by far one of our favorite indulgences. Though we typically opt for "less meat", having great choices for flavorful meats is preferred every once in a while. The service is typically very good. I would suggest going with the meal that provides you with the fantastic grilled pineapple to go along with the protein choices. My favorite meat... More

You will never have an empty glass. You will never have an empty plate or have to call for someone to help you. Been here over 10 times the past year and it's always a winner! Best salad bar in town, best steak, chicken and shrimp. The pineapple and bananas are to die for! If you really want me to... More

This was a very spendy place but if you want to go all out, it's just right. The whole experience was very one of a kind and I highly recommend it to anyone who is wondering about a fancy expensive place to impress someone. The people bringing around the meats were very friendly and respectful and the pineapple- don't pass... More

I am a local. This restaurant has been open for many years and has some of the best décor in Sioux Falls. You need to be prepared to eat when you come here. They have adapted their menu over the years. When first opened, all you could essentially order were their skewers of fish, meat and poultry served by authentic... More
