When visiting Rio we have at least one dinner here. Always busy and best to book although the front of house lady will do her very best to squeeze you in if you just turn up. Buffet style starters are kept well refilled and present...a huge choice of excellent food then the skewers start coming...and coming with fabulous meat of various cuts. Somehow the servers seem to remember the ones you like best Deserts and wine are available throughout the feast. I particularly like the welcoming atmosphere, food quality and the very friendly and helpful staff. We always return to this restaurant.More

The place exceeded our expectations. Nothing compared to Fogo restaurant in US. Their pre-meat dishes were amazing, like sashimi (3-4 kinds: salmon, tuna, white fish, etc.), sushi, salads( no ceasar ), cheeses, nuts, warm dishes like seafood, rice, veggies, sausages... But then the meat came...- wow. Note that most of their steaks were medium-rare. They also bring you meat that you can specialty order, like boar or ostrich, lamb chops. The drinks are not included, but they cost like $2, $3. Amazing watermelon smoothie and lemonade. Deserts are extra, also under $7. With nonalcoholic drinks and desert prepare to pay $50 per person, which is a great deal for that type of restaurant. Make reservations. It fills up around 7pm. Kids under 13 get half off. We took Uber to and from the restaurant (JW Hotel) and it cost us $1.25 each way.More

Wow. That’s all I can say to this restaurant. The meat that came round was cooked to perfection, beautifully seasoned and delicious. The buffet is incredible. Everything from salad, to sushi and everything in between. You will not leave hungry. We’re planning on returning before...we leave Rio as we’ve not found anywhere as fantasticMore

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, outstanding service and only a half block (130 meters) from the world famous Copacabana. Great selection of wine, we had a delicious bottle of Malbec with our lunch. Will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
