“Where to eat meat in a fish city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Sal e Brasa is a very nice option in a city where seafood is a must.
Nice place, a traditional "rodizio restaurant", ie, you sit quiet and the meat come to you in waves.
That is one small problem, sometime there are several waves at the same time and in the other hand you stay waiting and waiving at the waiters for another round.
But it is worth a visit, Prices during low season and week days are very cheap, about U$15,00 without beverage.
Hungry? It is a good option

“Good atmospher, salad/pasta bar, OK meat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Only one night in Fortaleza to wrap up our Ceara vacation, we tried Sal E Brasa. It was a medium-length taxi ride from our hotel.

Atmosphere is very nice with white tableclothes and a very attentive staff. Waiters and staff were great; rotating off to help us. Only a few spoke english, but all tried and were sincere in ensuring we had a good experience.

Next to the salad bar, they had a pasta bar. They cook custom pasta receipies - you choose pasta type, sauce, and what you want included (ham, turkey, cheeses, vegetables, etc). It was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had!

On to the meat - it is the normal rodizo rules with Green/Red button. Meat was good, but not great. About 10 different cuts were rotating around the dining room. Again, all were good, but none of them left me inspired.

Desert was great as I tried some sherbert.

Recommended as it was nice to get out of the tourist area of Fortaleza and be more with locals. Also, the prices were much more reasonable. I'd go back for the pasta bar alone.
