I was there yesterday to commemorate the new year´s eve with my family (5 adults and 2 children). In my opinion this is an excellent Brazilian BBQ restaurant at a very good price. Besides the wonderful meat, they have a very good buffé with salad and fruits, desserts, delicious coconut water, caipirinha and wines. Service is good and friendly and... More

The meat was very good as in almost all churrasciria in Brasilia. But in the buffet was a lack of creativity and inspiration...some green salats some vegetables that looked as the were put from the tin...the cappacio was tasteless...the service was good as also the caipirinha, but the cappucino was a desaster. I ordered it because I saw the good... More

This is an excellent Churracaria (Brazilian BBQ) restaurant at a fair price compared to the others in town. For me the Picanha was the best cut of meat but the the others were good also including the lamb.They have a good salad bar and and a decent wine list. Service was good and friendly.

I have been there many times, they have an awesome "Picanha", but their waitress are so confused and for the price you pay that shouldn't happen. Also, it is a lot of noise there. So if you want to talk, thats not a good spot to be.

Potencia Grill is a very good rodizio. On the night we were there, it offered a selection of 10-12 different meats: beef, chicken, chorizo, boar, pork, along with various parts such as hearts and chinchulines. The accompanying buffet is enormous (at least 30 different dishes), but don't fill up too much or you won't have room for the main course.... More

Met up with some friends based on recommendations from some locals. This is just as good as Porcao or Fogo de Chao for about half the price. And they even bring around side dishes of rice, risotto, eggs, and grilled pastry which was delicious! Was able to get out for about 80 or 90 Real!

Took a while checking all the reviews posted and also asking locals about Potencia Grill Churrascaria. Well, today I went with some coworkers and tried this place. It is located near the Praza do Tres Poderes, some 20 reais by taxi from the Hotel area. We were greeted cordially and proceeded to eat. Salad buffet is great, lots of different... More
