Average place, salty meat brought to you on a stick and sliced at your table. Meat is good most of the time but the pineapple is probably a house favorite. Place is quite busy every weekend so make a reservation. Drinks, alcohol, are expensive. Wine is average priced. They have a huge salad bar that is basically canned or pre... More

I was there for a work function, but came back with my husband because the food was so good. While there are a couple vegetarian options on the salad bar, this is mostly a restaurant for meat lovers. However, don't miss out on the roasted pineapple with cinnamon and sugar coating - it's awesome. The servers are very attentive. Also... More

We picked this place based solely on trip advisor reviews and it was terrific. It is a huge place but they made us feel like honored guests. The guys walking around with skewers of delicious meats were charming and the waitress was amazing. She was very sweet with our four tired kids and helped the meal run smoothly. There is... More

Very personable service. There is something for everyone. We had a party of 6 [2 very picky] everyone was happy and full. The grilled meats and the presentation are wonderful with pineapple to die for. This was so much fun for the whole family. Wonderful food and service.

We were passing through on our way to Minnesota from Nebraska with our three sons, 22, 20 & 17. Our rule when visiting another town or city is to never eat at a place we have "back home". My husband learned about this gem online and I'm SO glad! Yes, it was pricey...probably the most expensive meal our family has... More

This is an excellent and authentic churrascaria in Sioux Falls, SD. I always get the Full Rodizio here. This includes steak, chicken, pork, and pineapple covered with cinnamon. Ordering this allows you to get the salad bar and to sample a wide variety of meats cooked in a wide variety of different ways. Servers come to your table and offer... More

If you like great tasting meat and lots of it this is the place for you. On top of that they have a nice salad bar as well. I have tried all the meat that they serve and all of it has been cooked to perfection each and every time. The serving staff is very attentive and if you want... More

We recently ate at the Carnaval Brazilian in Sioux Falls. Yes the food was wonderful as well as the entertainment. Our biggest gripe was the price as we had eaten there before and it was one price and dessert was included. Now, it is not. In fact, they have tiered pricing which isn't explained in print anywhere and can be... More

We enjoyed very much our Brazilian Barbecue - all the meats were superbly cooked. Service was attentive and friendly. Wine list was quite good, we enjoyed a bottle of wine. So much good food and fun romantic atmosphere to enjoy it at. It was also nice that you could come casually dressed. Nice decor. Loved the method of turning over... More
