This is a great spot to try a great meat in Rio. There is a plenty variety of meat and fish you can choose and the chef cooks it on demand. Don`t forget to try the "BATATA PASTEL" it`s a blast.

This restaurant is definetly a very traditional place. It is well known and it has a stream of loyal patrons each at lunch and evening meals which makes the restaurant rather overcrowded, extremely noisy. The good news are that the service doesn´t suffer much because of that stress. Actually, it has nothing to do with a churrascaria and the name... More

We went for the recommended Picanha cut and boy was it good. The boys behind the grill know their stuff when preparing this and the restaurant was clearly a massive hit with the locals on a Sunday Afternoon for lunch. Excellent meat!

Mostly Brazilians at this larger (and quit packed on Sunday) restaurant. Servers offer sausage and vinagrette upon your arrival. Lots of quality meat offerings. Most people also tend to get a potato dish. We had chips. Good heart of palm salad (really just hearts of palm alone). Beat salad was not what we expected. It ended up just being a... More

If tourists could find this gem, it would be among the best meat places in Rio. Not sexy, not fancy, just good food and service. I will be honest, it helps to be a local as foreign language will be tough to navigate here. If you do brave the experience will be well worth it. Make sure that you insist... More

You will always eat well here. The meat cut is perfect, the codfish barbecue awesome, any type of fried potatoes which are breathtaking. There are no salad bar, but it really doesn't matter. Be early because if not there will be a Q.

I had great expectation but I found average good quality food. But, again, nothing out of this world.

We just eat here at saturday night the 24 of november. The entrance of the restaurant and the reviews looks nice to us so we give it a chance. However the service of the waiters was bad and very brutal and even unfriendly. We are just finished in 30 minutes, while the waiter uncomfortable was waiting with our voucher .... More

I believe the very first Churrascaria in Rio, if not Brasil. Not usually on the tourist trail but from the old school. You sellect your raw meat and they cook it to perfection. Served by professional waiters, in whites and bow tie, nothing is too much trouble. Not cheap but good value for money and an unforgettable experience! Give it... More

Old churrascaria , service is good, wines from south America AND some from Europe. But meat was hard. No waiter speaks english, altough they have a short menu written in english.
