It's a well patronized restaurant for a reason. The food is really good! A wide variety of meats to choose from in typical Brazilian style. This is a must-go if you are in Rio.

For lunch, it is a very Nice option as you can help yourself 4 food stations, plus a japanese counter which is freshly cut by a sushiman. You can also have meat, fish, chicken grilled on the grill. You name the cut and it is grilled for you. Sometimes the price can go up as you pay by the weight... More

they have a buffet all you can eat style with a fixed price and an option to pay by the weight. Quality is a little above average.

The Pampa Grill is in fact two restaurant: On ground level you will find a Churrasceria and downstairs a "per kilo" restaurant. Starting with the "per kilo" restaurant: It's pretty busy and noisy during lunch time as seats are very narrow to each other and the restaurant is always nearly full. The food is excellent with a huge variety on... More

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
