“Meet the meat”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

One of the best restaurants you can find in Canada in the Brazilian Style steak house.

Besides the good selection of meat, the sides are very typical ... and tasty ... you must try them ... good typical food prepared by people who know how to prepare best meat selection.

Complimentary ... fantastic show of Brazilian "mulatas" ... your wife will not leave you alone.

“Tasty Meat, Way Over Priced!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

First off booking a reservation was very weird, I called a few times and couldn't speak to live person, always had to leave a message to book, then they called me back hours later, and they had to email a contract for me to sign and fax back!! (I'm guessing cause we had a party of 15 people) Found that a little odd.... But I never got the contract..

We could only choose between two times for dinner on the Saturday which was 5:30pm or 9:30pm.

We got there for 9:30, but our table want ready till a little after 10pm!!

Its a nice atmosphere, party-ish for adults, music was good, the sides at the buffet table were ok... They should have little signs by the food, explaining what it is or whats in the food, cause we couldn't tell what was what!

As for the waiters coming around (by the way some of them had little attitudes) serving us slices of the skewers it was cool, but they kept going on one side of the table, and say they were coming back but didn't or they would come back with a different meat.... The slices they cut off the meat was sooooo thin, I thought it was a joke....$50 per person, they need to serve a lot more!! The shrimp skewers were over cooked and it was hard to peel the shell off!!

The meat selection was good, taste really good but a bit salty at times.... however we didn't get to try all the meat, they never came to our table with cheese stuffed prime rib or the suckling pig... or dinner rolls, they gave half the table cornbread(more like corn cake, but tasty)... The other half of the table got cornbread nearly 30mins later!

I feel because we had such a large table, they weren't able to handle it all, until the end when we were pretty much the last to leave and were already full.

Overall it was an ok experience, I did love the roasted pineapple!!! The Brazilian ladies did a dance for a few minutes and took pics with us... had a fun time, I like the concept, but its not really worth the hefty price tag!!

“Amazing selection of meats!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I went with my wife late on a Wednesday night. This is a churrascaria-style restaurant, where you help yourself to the sides at a buffet bar, and they keep bringing you different kinds of meat on skewers. The variety of meats available is incredible - they have maybe 20 different types, many of which taste exquisite! Our personal favorites were the flank steak, the garlic steak and the parmesan crusted steak. I ordered a caipirinha, which was made just right. Service was quick - no complaints there. The meal came to $38 per head, plus drinks and taxes.

The one downside is that the ambience doesn't match the otherwise incredible experience! The tables look like they're from a cafeteria, the paint on the walls is dull and the whole place looks a bit rundown and industrial on the inside. Maybe it would look better if there were more light and more people, but we were definitely not impressed.

“Good Place for a Group of Friends”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We went as a group of 15, there were a lot of large groups due to the holiday season. The place is very crowded and loud, not a place for conversation. However, it is a party atmosphere and there is live entertainment. Service was okay, it is too busy and noisy for servers to come across as anything but rushed and since it is crowded, it is hard for them to get around. The food is good, an all you can eat buffet with all you can eat variations of meat served at the table. Prices are reasonable for food and drinks. The wine list offers a good variety of different wines you do not usually encounter in restaurants. Overall, a good location for a night out with friends, not such a good location for couples, family with children, business or solo. Friends will have fun.
