After attending the dinner and show, I can see why some reviewers thought the show was cheesy. Although this was not an Tony award winning show, it was quite entertaining. They try too hard to have something for everyone. The dinner buffet includes everything from Sushi to Italian to Brazilian. The show includes dances / performances from most Latin American countries including Mexico, Paraguay, etc. I would have preferred if they just stuck with the Brazilian performances instead of trying to cover all of their bases. Most of the attendees of the show are tour groups, so this is a bit of a tourist trap. There were at least 200 - 300 other attendees on the night that we went. It was very difficult to see the show from our assigned seats. From the Foursquare reviews we read, we understood that drinks were not included in the price of admission, and that the wait staff would try to sell us as many drinks as possible. We did not encounter any pushy wait staff, they were very polite and only brought us drinks we ordered. Near the end of the show, they passed out strawberry juice drinks which we were not charged extra for. That was nice. Huge variety of food, something for everyone. Meat was a bit too salty.
Here is my video footage from the show - http://youtu.be/umC6aaWD_80

Loved the plentiful choices. But didn't like the seating arrangement, a bit crowded. Meats are plentiful but a bit dry on the day we went

I did not enjoy this show and all. A really corny show put on for tourists and no English at all. Buffet dinner is bedlam with crouds of people queuing to get their meal at the start. If you like quality cultural shows, give this one a miss.

Food is plenty, The place is not that crowdy if you arrived ahead of everybody else. Some would enjoy it if they just go for quantity. The show, mediocre but t least that won't put you to sleep. Service is questionable. When we arrived, the hall is just 25% full. Lots of empty tables, but we were asked to sit at the very end of the room with so many empty seats at our front. Protested. Finally we got some better seats. When the show was finished, a lot of tables were still unfilled.

We had our dinner somewhere else already, so we didn't had the buffet there. The show started at around 2100. Our seat was terrible, maybe it's cuz we booked the very late afternoon. After a while, we finally decided to step to the central back to have a better view. Here came the unknown brasilian friends on the same van to the show to ask us to sit with them-- in the central back!!! We were absolutely thrilled and amazed! Thereafter, we had a wonderful time enjoying the show with them. Many thanks to you-- a couple from Rio De Janeiro!
