“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great steaks, we went for the all you can eat (4 meats) and had more than enough choice. Glad I didn't go for the rodizio. Good drinks and the staff were good. Would go again.

“I would not return.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Three of us ate there a few nights ago. The service was poor and that is being generous. After getting our initial drinks we were ignored and tried hard to get their attention. Also they will add 15% service charge to the bill. That says it all really as you wouldn't tip that much based on the service you get. Food was OK. We had the 4 meat buffet. Two of us out of the three vomitted and had upset stomachs later that night. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else.

“Family lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a small place in the middle of International Drive but it is well worth a visit. The food was great and it keep coming until we told them to stop. The meats that come to the table was delicious, 10 types in all to try from beef, chicken, pork, and sausage,,,and some wrapped in bacon so you cannot go wrong there. I would highly recommend you bring the family here for a traditional Brazilian meal.

“Cant Fault it for the Price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The husband and I really fancied for Brazilian but left it quite late at night so needed one which was open a little later.

We had a quick look on trip advisor at this one as when we would vacation in Orlando we always stayed in the hotel opposite. The reviews were mixed including a review from a really good friend of ours, however we thought we would risk it and we are glad we did.

We got to the restaurant at around 10pm and found it was very busy however, they have really squeezed the tables in so was able to seat us. The waiter was friendly and attentive, explaining the process in detail to us and we chose the top option which was around $25 per person almost half the price of the other 2 Brazilian steakhouses on I-Drive.

For anyone who hasnt been to a Brazilian restaurant the waiters walk around with huge cuts of meat on skewers and cut the meat at your table. The meat kept flowing all night and we thought the cuts were delicious. We didnt waste much space with the salad bar but did try a bit and it was really fresh.

The cocktails were good too. We both had Caipirinha's, my husbands original and mine berry flavoured, both sweet and refreshing.

For the price it was much better than expected.

“Delicious food and excellent service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

The food is as good as a good self services in Brazil (which already is wonderful here in USA), and the service is very good, with people kind and thoughtful, and still inexpensive. In short, excellent value for money. Our server was Bryand that even persuaded my son to eat, being this a bit sick!!!
