We went to Amazonia on the recommendation of the concierge at our resort. The comment was, if you need to decide between Amazonia and Texas de Brazil, Amazonia is better because the meat is seasoned better, which makes it taste so much better. Well, I think the concierge may have got it backwards.
First off, the restaurants atmosphere is nice and the decor is nice. We were greeted and seated promptly. We did have an earlier reservation, so it was easy for them to serve us. We were then greeted quickly by the wait staff.
I was urged by the waiter to order a cocktail, so I did. It was in a very small glass and was mostly ice, so I was not impressed with it. As with other Churrascaria's, we were offered the salad bar as our first course. I was disappointed in the variety. The bar is very small and had few items. It was truly a salad bar, where in other similar places, there are several meat/cheese/shellfish options as well.
The meats started to come and they were OK, nothing to brag about. I tried several meats. I felt that the seasoning was minimal, if at all. So I was wondering about the recommendation we received. You do have the green/red object to tell them whether you want more, but the guys seemed to ignore this completely. Several times when we just wanted to stop receiving more meat and actually try to eat some, the guys kept coming over and trying to feed us more.
We happened to have been seated near a corner wall. This seemed to be the hangout for all of the waitstaff, as we had at least 3, but sometimes as many as 6 waitstaff standing right next to our table having conversations. It was not overly annoying, but was something we could have done without.
We decided to go to Texas de Brazil a few nights later and had a much better overall experience, and the meats were so much more flavorful. I think I will stick to Texas de Brazil.
