“Great location and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I am vegetarian, but my husband lives meat. Fogo de Chāo is a great alternative because they offer excellent meat and special price for those who do not eat meat. The caipirinha was a must.

“Meat, meat, meat... and salad.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

If You like a beaf - this place is not cheap at all, but if You try - it's worth it. Every kind of beaf served is fresh and best of its kind. During busy days - don't forget to reserve a seat in advance! For those who are vegetarian and got there (by mistake;-) - don't worry. You will find yourself soon next to a rich salad open bar. Variety of French and Italian taste there... And if You want a grilled pinneapple for a desert: it's HUGE. Like a half of the fruit? I really envy US to have those restaurants home as well...

“Meat heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Guys if there was a meat heaven this is it. Fogo De Chao rocks. Its a huge restaurant and normally always packed. We were there during the world cup and what a feast we had. @ hours of bliss with the choicest cuts coming to your table till you beg them to stop. The meat is cooked to perfection and its to be honest one of the best in the world. The staff speaks a bit of english which is always great to have anywhere in Brazil. They have branches in most Brazilian cities and some cities in the US - so all you meat lovers do drop in otherwise you will regret.

“Great dinner!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

While it is very expensive (423 reales for 3 people), the food is amazing and you can eat as much as you want- so come hungry! My favorite meat is "picanha". The staff is very friendly and majority speak some English. Fun atmosphere

“Wow Wow ...Fogo de Chao in beautiful Brasilia city in BRASIL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Fogo de Chão Brasilia

Went to a buffet at Fogo de Chao in Brasilia during the World Cup in June 2014.
The restaurant was very close to the TV tower and the water fountain in the open plan park. The stadium is also a stone throw away. Make sure you have an almost empty stomach as you will be served all the lovely Fogo de Chãoand succulent variety of Brasilian meat. It cost $R$120 per person which is about £35 which I thought was a bargain. You would not get that of sort buffet in West End in London, probably in a local Chinese buffet at that price.

You were given a green card which means you will be served meat intermittently until you turn the card over to red to signify you've had enough. Ensure your card is placed appropriately for your needs.

You can start with some self service salads with rice and other light foods and then the real action starts. The make staffs are immaculately well dressed in their traditional black and blue trouser and shirt and nice laced up boots/ shoes.

The various meat were very succulent and mildly cook and I took my time to taste every kind of Brasilian meat. They cut the pieces delicately from an elongated portion of meat downwards and you used your fork to slide it gently onto your plate.

They also allow a photo session if you care and taking pictures with their immaculate dress mode is pretty cool. I hope they have branches in UK and would definitely visit again in any part of the world is available

Highly recommend and a bargain.
