Like most churrascarias (barbecue restaurants) in Rio, Porcão prepare all meats in an electric grillers. Maybe their heat temperature were too low. The point is, despite beefs and lamb cuts were tender and fresh, they all were served stewed instead of grilled. Not acceptable at...More

Went to the address and found the restaurant shut and out of business. There is nothing more to add. I understand there are other sites where the chain may still have a restaurant open but I did not attempt to visit them.

Very popular with locals and tourists alike. Offers a very decent rodizio-style barbecue at friendly prices considering the location. No frills décor, no frills food.

The atmosphere is simple yet wonderful with several very long tables where families and couples sit amongst each other. All of the salads and cheeses on the bar are excellent and all of the meat is the best you will ever eat in your life.

A meat paradise. You get a cardboard "coin" with a green and a red side. As long as the green side is facing up the waiters will offer you more grilled meat. T-bone, flank, rump, fillet, pork, chicken hearts etc etc. All meat is perfectly...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
