“Barra da Tijuca´s best berbecue option!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Beautiful and refined dining room with an intimate atmosphere (due to the sober decoration and lighting). Unlike most other steakhouses, which tend to be more noisy and tumultuous, one can enjoy hundred of options among salads, meats and side dishes in a more quiet environment (Upstairs you´ll find Rialto restaurant, which consists in a great buffet with less meat and a better view). Attentive and friendly waiters, excellent quality and abundant food as well.

“best churrascaria of Barra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

this Churrascaria is so good that i got full of it! Me and my family used to go there every Sunday, because the price is excellent, the service is great, and the food is amazing!
I really recommend it, and there is always a soccer player or somebody important, so if you as a tourist you have an opportunity to get some famous soccer player autograph.
On Sundays there are promotions like get a bottle of wine for free, or women pay half price at night. On second floor there is another restaurant of them but buffet without churrascaria service, what is also good and half of price of downstairs.
Owh, and they park your car! What is great since parking place is hard to find.
And the view to the Laguna on second floor is beautiful.

“Fantastic..... if you're willing to go to Barra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2010

A great churrascaria, just off the beaten path if you are hanging out in Copa or Ipanema.
For R$63 per person, the selction was fantastic... including grilled whole lobsters and the best oysters I've had in Rio.
Caiparinhas are made table side with a choice of fruits or alcohol (at a cost of R$13)
Wines were very overpriced.
I understand they just changed management in late 2009.
If you're thinking of making a trip out to see the beaches of Barra, it is definately a good place to stop and eat.
