I was recommended the restaurant by the concierge and was happy to be surprised with the quality of food and service. I enjoyed the steak and it was impressive.

The meat and the salad bar were good, with plenty of choices. We had also pao de queijo and some pasteis de carne, the best I had in SP. The place is big, which is nice for big groups. Not suitable for a romantic date 😉. Staff is profesionnal. Worth the try!

Full of foreinerds for a good reason:it's good! The place is really nice, serice is impecable and food really good. I myself don't eat meat and this is one of rare ones where you pay like half and can serve yourself of an excellent buffet, with caviar, fish carpaccio, octopuss and etc. There are many kinds of cheese, etc and...

All-you-can eat freshly-grilled meat, with a big buffet for salads and side dishes, in a stylish environment. Make sure you have sliced picanha (a special cut rumpsteak) - you can only get it in Brazil, and it's excellent... Reservations are recommended; it's an easy walk from within Itaim Bibi.

Wow- Barbacoa is amazing. The salad bar is extensive but the best thing is the incredible cuts of meat they bring around on big skewers. The best beef I have ever had in my life. Exceptionally tender and flavorful. I was so full but desperately wanted to eat more because it was so good.

Every time I travel to Brazil, Barbacoa is one of my stops. The service is impeccable, amazing atmosphere and huge selection of salads and meat. The drinks are prepared to perfection and the papaya cream for dessert is to die for. Make sure to arrive early on weekends as waiting can take a long time.

this is a great typical brazilian steak house. the food is great. the slad bar was so fresh and so rich with a veriaty of fish, seafood and more. and the meat was delicious. the biggest surprise was the price - 120 Real per person is very good value for money service was excellent. English was not a problem.

For me a very good Restaurant to eat Meat. The Rodisio is fast and you can also order the meat what you prefer.....if you like meet and salad and legumes....to choose it from a buffet than you should at least eat ones there, and I guess you will come back

Saw the reviews here in Tripadvisor and sure they where right. Great salad buffet, excellent choice of meats. This is a typical grill restaurant, go for the meats and it can't go wrong. If you're a veggie type, salad buffet is great and big as well. Totally recommended.

We struggled a bit to understand how it all worked and the staff had virtually no English to help us. Anyway, we muddled our way through to an excellent lunch with a seemingly unlimited supply of superb BBQ meat. Tip - help yourself to a salad plate then turn the disk on your table to the green side - that... More
