4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Cozy restaurant even if inside a shopping mall / Hotel. Very attentive service. Nice buffet and nice choice of meat cuts. I tried the lamb which was fantastic. Surely to recommend, if you don't care eating in a food arena of a shopping center.

All of the staff speaks great English and the quality of food there is impeccable! The salad bar has a wide selection as well that complements the meat. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This churascarria has a variety of cuts of beef (my favorite was the cupim) along with other meats. The servers come around frequently. Large salad bar was also nice.

If you are looking for the best traditional Brazilian barbecue churrasco, this is the right place Outstanding meat quality, wonderful ambient and high level staff. Everything is great as well as the price. Very expensive but still feel it was worth of

This is strap line on Barbacoa's website and it certainly lives up to its name. Barbacoa goes beyond your typical high class Churascaria especially as it is a rodizio. They serve cuts of meat and other goodies that are prepared at your table. The 'salad bar' if it can be called that, is a temple to food in itself. The... More

Nothing to complain, excellent meat and nice staff. Waiters also speak English if necessary. You can also pay half of the price menu if you don't want meat (just the salad buffet) and this is a very nice gesture. Deserves a 5/5 grade for that.

The Barbacoa (Itaim) is the true one that is being copied many times. Exclusive quality of lamb, beef etc. The salad bar is offering lots to choose (although typically you want to save room for the meat dishes!). Desserts are good, try the fantastic frozen papaya with creme de cassis. Service was outstanding, friendly and very helpful and participating in... More

It is not cheap, but meat is delicious, the best cuts are served from the very begining. The whole food is perfect and service amazing.

Everything here from salad to the meats & desserts are gorgeous & to die for. Was spoilt for choice as there were so much to try, but limited stomach capacity, so need to be selective & go for the best. Probably not the cheapest option in town but well worth it. Service was good too.

Thank Jade W
