Bahian people say the best two rodizio-style "churrascarias" are Boi Preto and Fogo no Chão. (Rodizio means all-you-can-eat and prepared for each customer -- in the case of churrasco, meat-cutters come around with different kinds of grilled meat on skewers to your table and cut a slice on the spot.) We went for a sunday lunch at around 3pm. The place was full, but they gave us a waiting number and we were seated in less than 10 minutes. I was expecting a much more stuffy, posh atmosphere, but Boi Preto turned out to be a good restaurant with quite a relaxed atmosphere -- you don't need to dress up.
The food is certainly good. There is a varied buffet with mostly whatever you might want to eat -- from salads, paella, shrimps, smoked salmon, prosciutto, feijoada, to salmon sushi, strawberry/mango sushi, cheese, etc. At the table, I counted up to 16 kinds of meat, and surely there were more. I found that Brazilian people don't really concentrate on the meat alone. They come here to eat whatever they want -- some people were eating more sushi than meat.
All is good (and the air-conditioning is not too cold), but it surely isn't cheap. Rodizio per person, about R$90 plus 10% service charge, making it come up to about R$100 per person minimum. Waiters are attentive (in a good way) and keep on serving you beers until you tell them to stop! Half- size bottles of wine from around R$40. Coffee and dessert not included.
