“Excellent Brazilian food in a very welcoming and nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

We went here today and really loved it.
The food was excellent, you could eat as much as you want for 19€. Very tasty meat and the buffet was awesome.
We liked the friendliness of the staff very much as well. Everyone was extremely kind and friendly and helped us out when needed (we are new to Brazilian food).
Soda's (most common international brands but some very tasty Brazilian ones as well) were 2€ for a can (33cl).

The food was excellent for us, but it wasn't high cuisine. If you really like gastronomic dinners in the most fancy restaurants, don't go here. But we liked it very much.
It was the top activity on our trip to Brussels :)

“Substandard Brazilian food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

For those who know how a good Brazilian rodizio (barbecue restaurant) is, this restaurant is a clear deception: the meat preparation is poor, and messes up good meat into dry roastbeef which was hard to chew away, raw pork where it should not be raw, bloody picanha, which we had to send back three times to get it right. The salad bar and cozido was allright. It doesn't surprise me that this restaurant hardly had any Brazilian guests, but only other foreigners. That's a sign. Staff seemd friendly, but did everything to stuff you up with cheap meat and not give away the better pieces. They were reluctant to write a nota fiscal (official receipt), I wonder why..If you want Brazilian food, please find an other place, because this will disappoint you.
