I really loved the concept of Fogo Gaucho: amazing selection of meats, greens and desserts. Fine dining standards but super fast service. The food was delicious, and the staff were very attentive to our green tickets. Having the green side of the ticket upwards meant you needed service, and service was very efficient. However, I found a worm in my... More

Delicious selection of meats which keep coming. Buffet looked a bit sorry in places but this place is about meat which is does really well. The only disappointment was that the crocodile meat wasn't availble despite being on the menu.

Now - surely in Gaucho you can eat a lot. And if you are meat lover and choose rightly you can be even satisfied. Of course lot of stuff they serve is just overdone filler, but from time to time someone comes with medium or even medium rare beef or lamb and that is brilliant. I also enjoyed their pork... More

We had a new trader join and he wanted to experience the meat experience here as he has lived in Brazil and wanted to see if it was authentic enough. I must say I am never disappointed with my visits to Fogo Gaucho. The food is simple but tasty and the salad bar is fun I love it and enjoy... More

Can never go wrong at this lovely restaurant...lots of meat carved at your table or if you are not too hungry you can pick what you want and have this weighed. Great range of salads and some hot dishes of the day if you are not fully up to the meat. Love the prawns, picania and to crown it all... More

Having parked on the rough ground just outside the restaurant we entered this large den dedicated to serving food in the Brazilian Rodizio style. We were warmly received and installed at our table and ordered our drinks - I went for a bottle of ice cold Tusker lager. We were then briefed on the concept here and were soon on... More

They definitely have the BEST meat and set up I have ever had the pleasure of indulging in. The cost is extremely fair, the staff are amazing, the meat is in a never-ending supply..... I could say so... More

I have never experienced such a bountiful supply of superb food. System is that you turn your coaster over when you have had enough, otherwise the BBQ selection will keep on coming to the table (all you want to eat of any choice of beef, pork, chicken, fish, seafood, crocodile, game!) If you happen to be a vegetarian with carnivore... More

The meat was great. Service excellent. Wine good Only bad points were no crocodile meat - apparently it is difficult to get Nairobi - and tasteless and boring desserts in the buffet (although the BBQ pineapple is amazing!).
