Where do you start? Unlike most churrascarias (barbecue) restaurants in Rio, this one is a la carte, so you don't have the waiters coming around non-stop with different cuts of meat until you're stuffed full. I do, however, prefer this as it definitely results in a much better quality of meat, and the sizes of the cuts are immense -... More

You go here for the beef cooked over a wood fire. It is all on display so you know what you have ordered before it is cooked. It is very good quality. Prices are high, but the portion size is so big you could easily share a steak. Vegetable are an extra. Drinks are expensive. Tip - get a couple... More

A second visit to Majorica confirmed my earlier view that this was a special place for meat lovers. The picanha is perhaps the best you can find anywhere and the choppe amongst the coldest in town.

I know I have reviewed Majórica many times, but it is the place I return every time I am in Rio de Janeiro. It was not different this time. My cousin and I shared one picanha especial and it was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. I continue to vow for the place as the best steakhouse in Rio de Janeiro.... More

We went expecting one of the typical churrascaria experiences with the waiters bringing skewers of meat to the table. Apparently they dont do that anymore. It was just an ala carte menu. Food was still decent. Atmosphere was kinda bland. Wont go back

Selected this based on trip advisor ratings. We only speak English so the communication was a little difficult but was worth the effort because the food was great. They did not accept US currency, a first since we have been here

If you appreciate a good steak, here you can find the best Picanha in the city. Ask for the special picanha. Old school restaurant and nice atmosphere give you a taste of Rio.

Last night we went to this restaurant where I had not been in a long time. I know it is a very known restaurant but we had a bad experience! From the beginning the Valet guy told us that our car could only stay in the parking place until 1130 pm. We got there at 930pm. After we sat down... More

Most of tourist likes to go to the traditional rodizio restaurants in Rio such as Porcao and Fogo de Chao. Locals like these restaurants but sometimes prefer a place that offer excellent a la carte churrasco at good prices. Majorica has the best churrasco in Rio. You should try the excellent sausage (the best in Rio), picanha, the local farofa... More

I been three times now and each time the food has been excellent and the servers is outstanding. We order some of the lower price wines but have been disappointed as they were not in stock on two occasions. But have no hesitation in recommending it as a must visit if in Rio...
