“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

First of all, let me say this restaurant is for truly carnivores.
Service is impeccable, good selection of Brazilian cocktail drinks, good wine selection, food is excellent! I could go on and on forever.
Truly enjoyed our meal at Chima, will definitely return (albeit being too pricey)

“Excellent food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The Brazilian steak house is great - eat as much as you want, and everything is delicious. The "salad bar" is top shelf type of food, including fresh mozzarella, other expensive cheeses and meats, and great super fresh veggies. The meats are delicious, if there is a special temperature you like, they will make it for you. The drinks or desserts are not included in the price, but definitely worth it. Do not eat a big lunch if you are going in for dinner!

“Eat as you will!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Great concept! I've done this before. It starts with an open salad bar, very good variety and very good quality foods. The main course, of course, is all you can eat, but very fine meats and fish served at your seat. Flip a chip and a waiter will come and offer whatever he has on his skewer. When you have enough variety or quantity on your plate, flip the chip and the waiters will pass up on your table. Food is delicious and this place is good for people with big appetites because it is expensive. Fixed price is $50 plus drinks or wine. Enjoy! I will do it again.

“Nice start for vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

After going to a similar Brazilian Steak House in Texas, my husband and I decided to go to this restaurant the night before our cruise. Both the meats And salad bar were delicious. My husband also said the swordfish was good. Everytime we flipped our little discs for more food the gauchos were right there to serve us. Oh yeah the desserts (homemade mango mousse was excellent). My next visit to Ft. Lauderdale will include dinner here.

“great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Chima's is a Brazilian Churrascaria steak house, although somewhat expensive it is worth it, the selection of steaks and fish was phenomenal, the staff continues to bring by all types of meat grilled fresh and delicious. the salad bar alone is more than enough for a meal. I have been to other churrascarias but this is one of the best.
