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

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.
