Description: One of the city’s only authentic Brazilian Churrascaria experience, Frevo is ideally suited for gatherings of families and friends in the mood for fun, frivolity and flavourful food. Savour succulent cuts of meat, all served in espeto corridor style, originating from South Brazil where skewers of lamb, beef and chicken are carved at the table. Boasting a large selection of exotic and colourful salads with a Salad-ista preparing customized dishes for guests, Frevo also features a large collection of cachaça (distilled beverage made of sugar cane) based cocktails, including the world famous Caipirinha. Live music each night will reflect the vibrant tempo of Brazilian carnival.

I went to FREVO (again) and I ate so much food they almost had to roll me out of the restaurant in a wheelbarrow! The meat is always so juicy and full of flavor from the open flame grill and the side dishes (especially the creamy corn) are a nice complement. Watch out that you don't fill up on the soup and bread at the beginning or the salad bar - you want to save your stomach for the meat! My wife ordered the seafood platter that comes with a half lobster and scallops and prawns and she absolutely loved it. Really, one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Dubai!

A nice place, nice food, nice atmosphere, but A VERY SPECIAL GIRL working there !! Patience, a wonderfull, delightful and so sweet girl doing everything to make your diner becoming an exclusive moment !!! Honestly, if she hadn't been there, my dinner at Frevo would have been excellent, but not as great ! Since I am travelling for leisure or business, never in my life i've met a person taking care of the clients the way Patience did ! Honestly, you want to make your restaurant a special place ?? Have Patience reaching your team ! Everyone knows how important it is to have a nice smile and a wonderfull welcome and treatment when you are a client !

decided to try it Sunday 22th December. It’s a great place to eat with a variety of meats and a fantastic salad bar with a large variety to choose from. We started with a tasty soup, followed by the delicious and exquisite salad bar. Once you are done with that, you can then start pressing the red button, where you will be presented with a hunk of juicy meat of varying kinds and cuts and flavor’s on a long skewer.

It’s a feast of meats which is just an endless supply of fillets, lamb chops, chicken, beef short ribs and other varying meats and every single one was delicious.

The staff was very attentive and explained exactly what the concept was and how it was going to be served.
Our very special thanks goes to Patience, who took great care of us and made our evening memorable. Also a special thanks to the manager of Frevo Hillary, who was very attentive to our needs as well and made us feel welcomed.

Well done to all the team at Frevo.

Frevo is an excellent place to eat and we will definitely come back, next time we are in Dubai.

It is not real like the ones here in Brazil, but it is worth to visit, to know and sseing how brazilian food is perceived in the world. Meats are very good, even though they don´t give the brazilian names. They are trying do be faithfull to our style. They also have the famous and very necessacry "pão de queijo".
