The whole experience is here was of the highest quality. The staff were very attentive and the food was amazing. It was hard to say no to all the different options of meat that came out because everything was so tasty. The buffet also had...a really good selection of high quality food too.More

Waiters barely came to our table. I think I can count the number of times meat was served. Way below my expectations. Sides/salad buffet was great but not unforgettable. Drinks were excellent, though.

While in Rio de Janeiro, we visited Churrascaria Palace for dinner - a Brazilian steakhouse. There is a buffet section for salad, seafood, sushi, cheese. The staff then visits your table with various meats like Lamb, Ribs, Prime Rib, etc...the meat selection is delicious! Enjoyed...it a lot - make sure you have a reservation since they might get busy.More

So as frequent traveler, I often travel to Brazil. I’ve eaten at many churrascarias over my 30 plus years traveling to Brazil, and I have to say this place was fantastic. The service was second to none, and the meats were perfection! Not only was...it seasoned correctly, but the best and most expensive meats were coming to our table non stop. I’ll be back there next week again for another visit. Nothing in Houston Texas compares…..More

Best steakhouse I’ve been too. Easy to navigate through the meats and not a tourist restaurant. Classy and elegant. Would highly recommend.

We visited it a few times and the food was always amazing, the meat - to die for. Some of our friends were visiting for the first time and they said they had the best meat of their life there. It was impressive.

WOWZA. This place was the best meat I’ve ever eaten. My gf is from Brazil and she said this was too 3 Churrascaria that she’s ever been too. She’s been to thousands all over Brazil, and this one was top 3. This is a must...go in Rio. Thanks for the tip, trip advisor . I will have dreams about this meat for years to comeMore

Overall I felt it was over rated and not really value for money. The restaurant works on a self service buffet and the different cuts of meat come round separately. I arrived around nine pm and the salad buffet was already looking a little sparse....It was not particularly creative or really appealing. Most items had dressing already on them. The meat was good but you should be really hungry to make it worthwhile. The buffet was 189Rs on its own add an apéritif, glass of wine, water and dessert and it adds up. Then service is added. The waiters only spoke very few single words in English so there was no conversation about the menu. Dessert was good but everything was really overpriced and I don’t mind paying for good food.More

The food is very good. Staff ok. Not so many people. Overall good. But the end was bad. We are strangers, and seems obligation for us to pay 13% service. It is not obligation. But under pressure we pay. So, Unfortunately, really bad to finish...like that. Never come again.More

Everyone from the tour group was so full we had to beg them to stop. So many delicious types of dishes to enjoy at once put my stomach on overload. Since I was in a group and most people like the meat rare some items...were to bloody for me but not to worry because here comes another dish. Unfortunately we where too full for the desserts. An excellent experience.More

Churrascaria Palace was recommended to me by a local tour guide. And she didn’t disappoint! I’ve had a long day in the airport and barely ate except for some crackers so I was famished by the time I touched down in Rio. For R $169...(Brazilian real), you get your fill of Brazilian rodizio. The buffet includes all the meats (you can scan QR code on the menu if you need it in English and order the ones you like best). Otherwise, the servers will just come to your table offering you slices of meat unless you say não. I tried all of it but the one that I had a soft spot for were the ostrich and picanha. I may get this wrong but they said “skirt steak” but didn’t see that on the menu so it must be the shoulder steak. All those juicy tenderness paired with a glass of wine (Malbec) for me was perfection. For starters, they’ll explain the menu process - basically you can order / all you can eat style when it comes to the starters, entrees, sushi and meat. Desserts and drinks are extra. I also had to try the cãju caipirinha and it was strong!! No wonder it’s the Brazil’s national cocktail! Cãju, which I only learned of today, is a cashew nut fruit originally grown in northeast of Brazil. It kind of looks almost like a flan when made into a drink - add that with sugarcane liquor / “cachaça”, sugar and fruits like lime, caju, etc and voila! You get yourself a caipirinha :) Anyway, service was superb and the people were very friendly too! Serviço “service” charge is already baked into the bill but I was surprised that with all that I ordered, I only paid $47 USD. Even though there’s a service charge included, up to you and depends on how generous you are with tipping. You will not regret going here! So happy that this was the first place I went to as soon as I landed Rio.More
