The food is fine; the issue is about the service: At the start you get overwhelmed by offers of different meet. Clearly you cannot take all. Yet at some point the waiters start to ignore you, especially if you chose a seat far from their...main runway.More

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

Great restaurant with excellent, attentive service. The selection of sushi, sashimi and sides was excellent and the meat was predictably really very good. My long suffering Pescatarian partner enjoyed the fish on offer even though it was inevitably limited. The wine choice was excellent. I’d...say this was a great all round experience although not quite the best Brazilian BBQ I have experienced. Definitely worth a visit though if you are in town for more than a couple of nights.More

I was deeply disappointed with the meal, as several of the beef dishes were either under salted or over cooked. I can get better Brazilian BBQ in California

Went with a group of friends. We were seated immediately and given access to the buffet. Drinks and meats followed quickly. Everything was tasty. The waiters bring around skewers of different cuts of beef, veal, pork, chicken, and lamb. Try them all.!!! If you want...a different temperature (rare, well done, etc) just tell them and they will bring it. Go slow n the sides & salads as the meats are so good you’ll want room in your stomach for all of them! Good wines! Good fun! Give it a try.More

On a recent trip to Rio de Janeiro, we had dinner at Churrascaria Palace. The food, and the service were outstanding. The only reason that I did not give the restaurant five stars was probably beyond its control. We arrived in the early evening (maybe...5:30 or 6:00), and that was probably before they were at their best. Also, two days before, we had eaten at Barbacoa in Sao Paulo and that set the bar for all churrascarias at a totally new level.More

The dinner was very good, all you can eat of great meat of all kind. But was cool outside and there was AC inside and I felt cold. There wasn’t an menu but fixed price 50€ for person (without wine), I think a bit too...much for Brazil but not for the food quality and quantity of the food.More

Reviewed July 22, 2022

Given the "Palace" name I expected it to be in the Copacabana Palace Hotel but its located in a non-descript and rather scruffy side-street, and doesn't look anything really special from the outside, but don't let that put you off as the food is absolutely...superb and there is so much of it. The wine list is also awesome and they have wines from most wine-producing countries. My only complaint is that the servers come around with more meat much too quickly - you've barely put one delicious morsel in your mouth and he's back with more, and then more, and more till you have to turn him away.More

The meat quality is not good at all, apart from the slow cooked and then grilled meat, ALL was chewy. Heavily salted, just generally really not great. Paying three times what it’s worth, because it’s beside the Palace hotel. Find small local equivalents - not...this complete tourist trap - trust me!!!More
