The best churrascaria in Costa Rica. Good environment and valet parking. Food is ok but not comparable to Fogo de Chao or Texas do Brasil, Montanas, etc...

Our second visit, and lucky to have a Brazilian with us, as we had to send the first round of Caiparinha’s back as sub-standard, and then had to call over the Manager to discuss the meat, to the point, where they went and made up some new skewers, where the meat was of a far superior quality. Overall, and post... More

The first time we went we were impressed with the place and the meats that were being brought out were juicy and tender.the options at the salad bar and food trays can be better,the sushi was not real sushi and more like California rolls.Don't get me wrong but if you're paying $50+ dollars the food should be given with better...

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.
