Make sure you come with a very large appetite, you are in for a treat.
The service is amazing, look for a seat where Moises operates, he is seriously the best waiter eeeeeveeeeer.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I go to Faisca with my family when we are celebrating a special ocassion
It really worth the price! Service is excellent, the salad bar has everything ceviches japanese rolls gourmet salads but be careful ladies dont eat too much of that delicius entries because the greatest part is the different kind of meats, chicken, shrimp you could posible eat at the table! Desserts are refreshing , light and tropical tiny delicius pieces of mouses cakes and fruits and others! Dont forget the capuchino or regular coffee which is also good!

“Aaahhhh...Not So Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

The good:
service
martinis--some of the best I've ever had

The bad:
the buffet--lots of stuff that was not labeled and the desserts sucked
price--pretty damn high for San Salvador and it is a buffet with a lot of mediocre food.

“Way too much food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

They bombard you with food, constantly, this is the place to get fat. They give you a little round cardboard sort of like sign, with a "yes" on one side and a "no" on the other. I had never done this before, when you flip it to "yes", waiters will come to you with meat, seafood, you name it and literally will bombard you with food, when you flip it to "no", they leave you alone to stuff yourself. LOL.

“Stuffed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Excellent Brazilian Steak house! From the moment we sat down the meat didn’t stop coming and it was delicious. We went for Sunday brunch which included free Champaign and an incredible salad and dessert bar. The service was excellent as well and the atmosphere very fun and lively. I would definitely go back and take friends!

The traditional Brazilian cheese rolls were awesome!
