Fantastic place with great service. The grilled steaks were so good we had to come back for lunch a few days later. Tip: Try the Norteña (la cerveza del Uruguay)

Good food but in my book, a little expensive. Music live playing, close to downtown area, quick accommodation

Churrasco Ao Vivo is already a traditional option for those staying in Canasvieiras. Great service and a fun environment (usually with life music performances). The steaks are great and are heavy influenced by the argentine patrons that fill up the restaurant during the summer season.

We had dinner there twice and both times the meat was excellent and the quantities huge. Very nice place to enjoy a Brazilian Churrasco dinner.

The beef chorizo of this restaurant looks like the original one made from Argentina. Really very taste.

Went with a friend and we took vacio (fraldinha). Got a chunck of meat of about 1kg, cooked as we asked, tender and juicy. Very good. Average caipirinha. I also had a glass of wine which wasn't that good. The service is a little bit over the top, but quick and corteous. The quality of the meat deserves a visit.

As the slogan says, it's an Argentinian restaurant with a Brazilian atmosphere. If you like Argentinian meat cuts this is the right place for you. You can also find good salads and few Brazilian dishes. On that nigth the meat has been served on the exact point I asked and it came in a hot special plate to avoid the... More

The food was great and served quickly. Staff was also very friendly... One portion was enough for 2 adults + 1 child, the price was fair. The atmosphere was nice and the location also good. No dislikes!

We had lunch today at this restaurant and the the meat was excellent! We suggest to order any type of meat except for the seafood ( calamaris) that were too breaded. We highly recommend the restaurant and for sure the meat is one of the best 's we have ate in Florianopolis.
