Santos would benefit from a better restaurant than this poor attempt to serve Brazilian rodizio. You will not be thrilled here, but it is fair enough since there is no better option. Do not expect greatness, and you will not be disappointed.

I'm not sure how Brazilians eat so much great food like the serve here and stay so healthy. The salad bar is outstanding and the meats that they bring out are mostly perfectly cooked. No need to worry about dessert here. The location right on the beach is very nice providing a great place to walk off some of the... More

Typical Brazilian grill restaurant with meat carved at your table. Good service and food. Clean place with reasonable prices. Have visited then many times over several years and they never disappoint.

I eat at Tertúlia for more than 20years. But the level, unfortunatelly is not the same. The meat is ok. Not marvelous. The maître is a wonderful person. The waiters not so much. There is a salad buffet that is better in the weekends. From monday to tuesday, it is por. Somedays, waiters take a long time to bring you... More

Good meat and salad bar, possibly the best choice of its kind in Santos/Guarujá, and reasonably priced for what it offers. However, having had lunch there a number of times, I have noted that the food and service varies sensibly with the day and time. On weekdays, avoid arriving after 2PM, the best meat cuts have already been served, and... More

I read the reviews of “Tertulia” and decided to explain some facts. “Rodizio” is the Brazilian way to serve “all you can eat barbecue”. “Tertulia”, as most “Rodizios”, offers “Brazilian Barbecue Southern Style” (”Churrasco Gaucho”, as we call the one made at “Rio Grande do Sul”, our State near to Argentina and Uruguai). It means, in the end, that you’ll... More

Great quantity of salad and cheese at the buffet, including some sushi and sashimi, but the protagonist here is the meet! Good selection and they serve as you want, rare, done.

A very good place for meat lovers. All you can eat, for a fixed price. The selection of meat was very good. Go early (opens at 7 PM) to avoid the crowds.

We attended a dinner for three bus-loads of conference attendees. The group took half the restaurant, though it seemed well equipped and set-up for such business. Tables from two customers to thirty were accommodated. A large "salad" bar with everything one could want, except meats. The meats came, and came, and came. Sausages, steaks, pork, chicken wrap pen in bacon,... More
