“If you like meat, this is the place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Although Carnivore is far better known, Fogo has a similar concept at half the price and equal quality. Food is tasty and service is excellent. Unlike Carnivore, Fogo also has fish and seafood so this is nice for those who are not big red meat eaters.

It is a popular restaurant with locals and foreigner so go early of book in advance.

Worth the effort and price.

“Packed evenings serving a popular carnivore fare.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The place is packed, so do reserve ahead and be willing to wait around a bit. This is a fixed price per head, steak house with un-limited servings of a reasonable selection of meats, which is just above average, and a small selection of sea food that is below average. There is a very good salad buffet and a live band that does keep the place lively. Overall this could be a good place for large parties, noisy meets noisy! Certainly not the place for a romantic dinner or for those who are serious about steaks.

“Busy and popular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Very popular busy crowded restaurant but lacking intimacy. The way this works is that you help yourself to salad and then the waiters come round offering you different cuts of meat (and fish) until you have eaten sufficient. Waiters are efficient - but lack finesse. Salad bar choices are good. Meat OK - but you may need to wait sometime for your preferred choices. Don't be tempted to fill up on everything that is offered. Not a good choice if you are looking for an intimate evening with a range of choices and something special.

“Great meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Great cuts of meat but served so fast you can barely have a mouthful before the next cut is in your plate. Need to give you time to enjoy the delicious meat
