I've been here twice, both times with reservations, once with just my wife, and a second time with a daughter and her husband. Both times, the food and the service were top-notch, and the wine selections were nice (not much of a oneophile; we liked what we had). Rather expensive in total, so I'd say they were priced accurately for what you get. The meat was great, and the salad bar is one of the best I've seen.

Our first visit on a weekday was flawless, and the reason we came again.

The one off-note was the second time we came, with reservations for our party of four on a Saturday, to find that the only tables available were by the kitchen, or right next to the salad bar traffic. I still rate the restaurant as excellent, but next time we'll either wait for a quieter table or try again another day.

We dined at this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and from the moment we stepped in the front door, we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly and prompt service. The food was amazing and their selection of delicious meat did not disappoint. We will definitely return!

First time at this restaurant. For the single flat price, all you can eat experience, you get much more than you pay for. The food was outstanding, and perfectly prepared; there were numerous cuts of beef, lamb, chicken, pork and sausage presented by the large wait staff. A luxurious salad bar started the experience and it only got better as the meats and sides were brought to the table.The service was exceptional, friendly, and informative. The wine list was extensive and well represented. A bit noisy on a Friday evening, but the business was brisk with people waiting to be seated. Reservation recommended.

We saw the billboard ad off 183 while driving and decided to try this Brazilian restaurant. Little did we know how memorable and tasty it would be. The staff were so attentive and excellent. We never had to ask for anything. They anticipated our needs and we were never without. Riko especially made sure we were taken care of. He was great! And Thomas made some time to also give us directions as we were visiting Austin for the first time. We will definitely recommend this place and can't wait to go back. Thank you staff of Estancia Churrascaria for such a memorable, tasty and wonderful experience.

We were invited to this place for a dinner by a colleague of ours. What a great experience for Europeans who really enjoy very tasty steakes! The service was great, very fast and highly professional. You can select from variety of meats - beef and lamb. Very good selection of drinks. One of restaurants in Austin were I was very satisfied.
