“Good but very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Very good restaurant for families or couples. Had the picanha, which is done on site in small grills next to you. The meat and the appetizers that were served (carrot sticks, mozzarela, tomatoes, bread, amongst others) were good, but are not worth the money spent (average of EUR 60 per person with bottled water for drinks, desserts and coffee). Don't get me wrong, you will not go out and complain about the food or service, which were good, but if you are not an affluent local customer you are going to be at least surprised when the check arrives. To be honest, the whole city is expensive, but when you look at it from a more broader and global perspective you are going to feel that Rodeio is a bit overpriced.

“Dry martinis and meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I started with a dry martini, which was perfect, dry but not too dry. The meal went on with salad and a superb Bife de Ancho, medium, cooked at perfection.

“Appalling service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I had previously been to this restaurant and enjoyed it. I went tonight and waited 5 mins for a drinks menu. 10 mins later my drink arrived. After a further 10 mins I finally received a food menu. After another 15 mins no-one had come to take my order. No-one took any interest in me. So I walked out and paid for my drink on the way out (they even kept the few Reals change). I will never grace this place with my presence again.

“expensive, but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Good meet restaurant; They have a special heart of palm as a side dish that really woth trying. The sliced "picanha" is another specialty, but very expensive for few grams. The starter have some organics vegetables, but nothing so special; Take care when they offer you with the starters the buffalo's muzzarela (it will cost you more than R$17). Simple decoration - resemble the regular rodizios, but is smaller and more quite.

“Meat, delicious meat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is great quality beef, pork and lamb cooked on charcoal grilles in front of you. Large portions of perfectly prepared meats with fish available and excellent salads and sides. Located in the Jardim district. This place can be a little pricy but not so much when compared to other local restaurants....A little noisy when busy and a mix of casual and business so almost all attire was seen.
