“A must for your visit to Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is truly a great experience and you must make a visit if you are in Rio. Don't fill up too early as the best cuts of meet tend to come out later so try and hold back!

“great views- but not for veggies”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I used to get taken to the Porção restos a while back . A huge salad bar kept me amused as a vegetarian, and they even gave me a 25% discount as I wasn´t going to eat the meat. However, last time I was taken , the salads have been adulterated with bits of ham or crab or whatever.If you don´t eat meat , don´t go. There is absolutely nothing to eat there anymore. Shame

“would give 6* rating if could”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The best meal I had in Rio! Excellent service, excellent meat, awesome location and view!
Make sure you come to this location instead of the other branch in Ipanema if you want to dine in pretty surroundings.
Be sure to have this place on your list of places to eat in RIO. MUST MUST!

“Amazing pleace to experience Brazilian style grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant is located at the beach and you get a great view while experiencing high quality grilled meats served on sticks, with an unlimited salad and sushi bar. The restaurant is a little bit expensive comparing with the average price for restaurants in Rio, however, it's definitely worth it. Except this location, Porcao has other branches in other parts of the city including Ipanema. The waiters are very polite and nice, you get an excellent service, they all speak English quite well, and their salad bar is really big and diverse. Once you try, you won't regret it!

“Best meal in Sth America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Travelled five weeks thoughout Sth America & this was worth the Aussie $50 it was our favourite meal. Meats were great but we absolutely loved the seafood and buffet of vegetables and salads. Salmon and prawn paella was delicious! Beautiful views, great service. Even listerine in the bathrooms to freshen up. Do it!
