“Horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Actually it was my second time in this restaurant.

First experience (summer 2012) was amazing, I've been with big group of my friends and we enjoyed it. Show, food and ambiance were amazing.

This time - 31st August was horrible.
Now at the entrance of the restaurant you are welcomed by Slovenian ladies who are taking you to the table and as we understood are not speaking French and very poor English. It looks like escort service, probably some gentlemen are amazed but it is a restaurant not a strip club.

Be ready to share table with random people even though you are in the VIP area, even though you are not smoking but forced to seat close to someone and breathe its smoke.
Continuing, so we are waiting for show which was supposed to start at 22:00 or 22:30 and listening dj. Not really dj it was bad music programmation which was impossible to listen and it wasn't matching with BRAZILIAN restaurant.
Still waiting for the show, got food, not that tasty as last time but it's fine compare to everything.
Ok, midnight show started (we were expecting show at 22:00) live band started to play and sing BUT it's SPANISH songs in BRAZILIAN restaurant, belly dance, сapoeira, Brazilian carnaval - fine. But on the stage appeared huge man hardly dressed like woman (don't wanna call him transvestite), with broken shoes (apparently they didn't find his size and decided to open it in front) and started to stomp. It was last drop in our decision to leave.

The most horrible experience ever.

“Ruby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I came here with my friends some months ago, We had a really great time. The show is spectacular with beautiful dancers, capoeira and samba acts, and great singers. I will definately come back if I will visit Marrakech again

“as usual, beauty and perfection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We've noticed it on our way to House of Music and decided to give it a go after.
We weren't aware about this churrascaria thing and were confused about menu without food but reasoned that it shouldn't empty our pockets anyway)

So, new surprises started to emerge. First - that there is salad bar and it's free with unlimited number of approaches.
After I filled whole plate we were surprised second time - waitress delivered numerous appetizers and said it's all for free.
True happiness came when waiter started to offer us different kinds of meal - I already had full plate so I tried to resist, but he stiil sometimes managed to persuade me to take some :-)

Also some main guy (owner maybe) regularly stopped by and asked if we are happy enough.

Overall I can conclude that it is a very manly place - a lot of food, a LOT of meat, all for a fixed price (+ reasonably priced beer). I was also charmed with level of service.
Definitely will visit this place again, and probably others churrascaria places.

And one more thing to say - fixed price means 30 euro. It's not expensive at all for a common dinner and a show, and it's a great value for all thing available for that price.

by the way this is not my first visit, the place is still amazing. just love itttttt.
