We arrived for dinner around 5pm and were given the low down on how the restaurant worked. $50 pp for the Churrascaria buffet or ala carte in the small dining room. We chose ala carte and there were two other people in the room. We ordered Rib Eye steaks medium rare. 45 minutes later the waiter brought us some bread... More

I was a frequent customer of Fogo Brasil for several years but for different reasons I left visiting the place. I returned last Thursday and to be honest I felt a decrease in the quality of the food and the service. It is still a very good restaurant, but is not improving in any way a top restaurant shoud do.

A large and heavy air-conditioned restaurant like many other rodizio / churrascaria in big cities elsewhere, Fogo Brasil is the first of its kind in Costa Rica. Nice buffet and very good meat. Good service.

The place is huge, nice and clean. The service is very good and quick. Is a bit expensive, but I would say that is totally worthy. Is a buffet..so they have many kind of salads, I tried all of the options and all of the options were delicious, fresh and tasteful. Same thing with the pasta, ceviches and sushi. They... More

This is a restaurant we have heard about before. Well we decided to go there with a business partner. Well all we can say is the staff was great some of the food was excellent but for the price it was terrible.There were 3 of us and no alcohol drinks. The bill was in excess of 225 USD. Enough said.

This restaurant has a big buffe and the waiters offer different kinds of meat by your table. It is all tasty. But there is no menu and no prices shown anywhere. The waiter asks if you are tico, and if you are not the price is 50 USD, drinks not included. When the bill comes you discover that neither is... More

Large open dining area. Salad bar and buffet had large assortment of options. The best part of our dining experience was the assortment of meats. The chargrilled method adds a great flavour to the meat. Overall, our experience was very good, but pricy. $50USD per person just for the buffet and meat. Everything else is extra.

The restaurant is set up as original Brazilian churascaria. The buffet for salads was good, but not special. Keep in mind the cost for one person is 50 dollar, there was limited choice. Some non authentic Brazilian dishes like cheviches and sushi. The meat came regularly, and was good but not great. And relatively limited choices. In Brazil you have... More
