“Authentic Brazilian BBQ”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

If you are talking about the authentic Brazilian BBQ, Fogueira is the place and a hidden gem. This is where you have an adventure in eating (all you can eat) with upbeat environment. When we arrived we were pleased by the modern and comfortably lit dining room. Several tables were set up for larger parties, which is a common occurrence here. The focus is on good food, lots of food, and fun. This is a great place to meet up with your friends for dinner and conversation.

The salad and condiments are fresh and well-presented but don’t go crazy on salads as they are just good fillers between tasty hunks of meat.

A staff member will explain the 'rules' while you munch on wonderful cheese bread balls (not their official name) that are hard to stop popping in your mouth. Each table is supplied with a coloured "signaller" with one green end and one red end. Green means start bringing the selections of meats and red means you are taking a break. Lay it down on its side, and that means you give up!

They are offering two packages which are AED 260 for non-alcoholic package includes almost everything except sparkling water which we could not figure out why it’s not included and AED 360 for Alcoholic package which included house beverages and cocktails.

I have been in this restaurant few times not and one disappoint factor is the inconsistency of the service. Some days, they give you personalized service with amazing hospitality and their full attention but some days… You feel like walking out of the restaurant without saying anything. Finally, at my last visit, I figured it out that if there is a corporate dinner or a group of 8 or more, they totally ignore the rest of the customers in the restaurant. So I suggest giving them a call before making a booking and ask them if they have a big group or corporate customer at the time of your visit.

Overall, It’s a great place for family and friends.

“Carlsberg don't do Brazilian restaurants.......but if they did!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

A thoroughly pleasant dining experience in a classy and elegant setting. Excellent customer service was the perfect compliment to a fine selection of Brazilian foods and meats. The drinks were plentiful and served in an exclusive location with panoramic views of the jameira beach area of Dubai. Recommended and looking forward to enjoying the hospitality of the accommodating staff in the near future.

“Nice location only.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This restaurant offers a nice location at the 35th floor of the Ramada hotel. Based on my previous experiences in other churrascarias in brasil, where I lived for 4 years, the Fogueira does not obtain my full approval. The brasilian team is doing their best to satisfy the customers but the place does not allow to even meet the sufficience. The variety of the meat, due to the importation taxes and the local rules, is not so wide and the taste also suffer this restriction. The buffet and appetizer, salads, pao de quejo, feijao, are good enough. The offered options for the menu, does not seems concrete and conventional: 100dhs for the "all inclusive wine" is fine, but for those who prefer water, 42dhs for a 0.75lt is not fair. Concerning the price, is a little bit over the average and considering the aboves, the price/quality ratio, is not that high. Total amount for 2 couvert, wine package and 1 bottle of water: 216USD .
