“Best modern rodizio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

A modern churrascaria where rodizio service is typical offered. Passadores (meat waiters) come to the table with knives and a skewer, on which are speared various kinds of meat. The meat they served was tender and loved the Brazilian attire the waiters had on.
Something to try is their skewered pineapple and they have a variety of salads in their salad bar as well.

“Sunday Grill with the family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Fogo Gaucho is a typical Brazilian rodizio. Eat all you can, different types of meat grilled on charcoal. Salads, cheese, desserts, whatever... as long as you have your green card turned up on the table they will keep serving you... if you really can't take more turn it around and show the red side of the card. Fun for children also, because they do the card part. Good place to go if you have hollow legs...

“Good meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

The variety of meats is good. The quality met my expectations. Service could improve on speed.
I liked the selection of salad as well. Overall, a good place to eat especially in a large party.

“The best steak house in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I decided to treat my best friend on her birthday by going to Fogo Gaucho. I was not disappointed. The service is great and waiters pay attention to detail. We started off with their salads and I must say I had their potato salad which was the best I've ever heard in my life. Simply amazing! The meats are incredible...you can have rare, medium rare and well done meats all you can eat! At the end of it all we were all stuffed and wondered how we were going to sleep through the night.
Thank you Fogo Gaucho for the excellent experience. We shall be back soon.

“Best Meat in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I had one of the best dinner in Nairobi at this place. Fogo Gaucho has an array of salads to choose and not forgetting the reason why people go there - the meat! They had different types of well marinated and grilled meats and sausages. One interesting thing was the grilled pineapple, although I didnt taste it for personal reasons. Oh, the staff are very friendly and helpful too!
