“More interested service would have given this an Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I dined here with a business partner. The atmosphere reminds you of a fine steak house in the States so I was excited. The salad bar and the meat were very good but the service was not up to par. It seemed every one was looking forward to just getting you served and going home. Just shows that service can make the difference between very good and excellent. If it's convenient to you in Sao Paulo, it's not a mistake to go but I would not go out of my way.

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Very nice place. Been there several time and would recommend every single time for the food. The best salad bar option at any churascaria i been at. The meat option is good, deserts are awesome. The only thing is the price. They are the most expensive place of this type i been at.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Just got to eat there again for the first time since 2008 and it was even better than I remembered. The meat is incredibily delicious and there is a very large selection. The salad bar is equally great as is the service. I've eaten at many different Brazilian steakhouses and this is by far the best. You definitiely have to try it if you visit Sao Paulo.

“The best churrascaria in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

There are plenty of choices for good meat in São Paulo, but if you want the very best, go to Barbacoa. The ambiance is wam and elegant, the service is attentive, and the food is absolutely fantastic.
