“Quantity but quality - this is fun and 'gustoso'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

A great way to spend, without 'spending' too much, a lunch or an evening out for couples, 'amici' or even business dinners. There is a great selection of starters including all the basic salads, fresh parmesan, cured meats etc all beautifully presented. Then comes the selection of meats, fish, fried banana, crocodile etc delivered with a stop/go system directly to your table. The atmosphere is invigorating as groups delve into the consumption of apparently huge quantities of quality bbq food. I've never seen the restaurant empty for long and the hustle and bustle makes the experience a fun place to be with your partner, family, friends or business colleagues. Thoroughly enjoyable but be careful just how much you concede to eat - even if the price is fixed!

“So much MEAT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We didn't even have to travel halfway across town to get to this one. It's smack on Waiyaki way. In addition to all that meat was an impressive array of healthy salads. If you will visit this place plan to make it your only meal for the day!

“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.
