“Meat Adventure in Nairobi! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Amongst the few upmarket restaurants in Nairobi offering gluttonous indulgence in pure flesh eating orgy, this Brazilian restaurant truly stands out. In part because they have the best (relative to others) selection of salads. Must try - croc meat, garlic beef snd beef briskets. Prawns is a no no primarily because it is always overcooked. Else, a great place to have a nice relaxed evening.

“Great food, great service, a must to visit...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We have visited this place a couple of times and I have to say its a great experience, a must to visit when in Nairobi.

The service is great, the waiter gives you a quick brief and off you go to the salad bar, which is stocked with a great selection.

Back at your seat and within seconds you have about 7 waiters around you, with loads of different types of meat to choose from.

If you forget to turn your card to red! the waiters keep coming and coming...

There was 8 of us (4 adults & 4 kids) and we had a couple of drinks and including the meal it cost about 16,000 KSH, which is over 110 quid...not bad I suppose, but I think its one of the most expensive meals we're had in Nairobi.

Overall very friendly staff, great food if I had to say one negative thing there is a lack of parking within the compound..no great deal if you get a taxi.

“Brazilian BarBQ - Loved IT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We went their with a group of office colleauges as a team dinner and we really loved the food. The food is halal and the meat used for BarBQ is excellent and light. None of us felt heavy after having more than what we could survive. The prices are also very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food served. The salad bar is also nice and the cheese block (a huge one) kept at the salad bar is something that surprises everyone. Do try their grilled pineapple, i found it to be really unique.

In all, totally loved the place! Unfortunately we discovered it too late in our stay and couldnt go back their again.

“Delicious churrascaria in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We often take guests to Fogo Gaucho for a fun dinner, and we're never disappointed. From the attentive service to the well maintained salad bar, everything has been top notch. Our out of town guests are always impressed by the delicious crocodile, but we prefer the beef and lamb. Great choice for groups or out of town guests.

Tip: Take a taxi or use a driver as parking can be a little difficult.
