It is a Nice place and different style. At my last visit there yesterday with 50 guests I was disappointed. They served too little food, even after I asked for more. And the most of the serving was at once we was sitting down, before we got drinks. The price for food was good, 42 Rais for men and 28... More

Well typical Brazil BBQ place, service was not great. The waiters serving the food are not careful and stain your clothes or bags with fat and juice from the meet. You had to ask for being served several times. The dessert was not refilled and we found hair in the food. Overall experience would we go again? No we would... More

Tabua de Carne is a interesting mix of regional food “rodizio” (Brazilian style steakhouse) restaurant: you can opt for rodizio or order by menu. Personally, I prefer the last one. The rodizio is very good (well, not as good as the South and Southeast “churrascarias”, but good…), with lots of different types of meat and fish. If you decide for... More

I would like to apologize for what happened because it is not common that happen. Anyway, we asked for our team to have more attention at work. In that day had no more reports of problems with other clients, but some are more sensitive to fat and some plates contains our local butter, which is more fat than standard butter.... More

Stepping onto the grounds of this restaurant, you experience an entirely different atmosphere than the street you just stepped in from...landscaping, outdoor seating, and a distinctive look to the design of the restaurant. If you order from the "serve yourself" menu, you can treat yourself to many different Brazilian dishes. If you are a meat lover, you have died and... More

During our visit to Natal we went their three times: 2x rodizio, 1x a'la carte We always liked it. Good buffet and meat selection. Very good value for money. During the weeks there are special discounts on the rodizio. We also like the live music (MPB) on the weekend

If you like Meat, this is the place. In fact it was the best meal we had in Natal. The price was right, the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. Don't take to much meat from the salad bar/buffet as the fresh BBQ just keeps being delivered to you non-stop. If I was going to eat at one... More

My father and my brother and I went here twice during our stay for some World Cup games! The first time we had the buffet and the second time we ordered off the menu. Both were great. Really nice atmosphere, out in the open. The owner was very attentive with everybody and made everyone feel comfortable. Very fun if you... More
