“basic dinner show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

The reviews are accurate, this is mainly set up for tourists and business groups. This is a very large room with some tables quite a long way from the stage. That being said, are we not tourists and the target market the owners are striving to reach. The performers really try to put on an entertaining show and the food is good and plentyful but not a lot of selection for the meats. Tip the person seating you if you do not like were you are placed and they will seat you up front if possible.
Would not go again, but you might want to go once to see the dancing and entertainment if you have a free night in Igazzu. Does not take all night so you can go out after the show.

“Gringo catering show, average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Disappointed with level of kitch show and the buffet was extremely underwhelming. If you want a more authentic show and better typical food, go elsewhere. Expensive for what you get. Very touristy.

“Meh.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

I'd agree with the reviewers who say this is a tourist trap, but I'd also note that quite a few Brasilians (possibly tourists) seemed to be in the restaurant/show with us. Apparently you need to book far in advance to get a reserved table with a good view of the small stage. The food was good. I enjoyed the desserts and the pasta. I also enjoyed the churrasco, but note that you should pay attention when you ask for your favoured cut. I asked for picanha and was given alcatra instead. The show was not something I would go back for, but if you are into camp it might be for you.

“Just an average Churrascaria (Brazilian grill)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Expected more for the price, but it was just an average churrascaria. The dessert buffet was always short and not fast replaced. It did not look clean either. Did not watch the show.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is not the best Brazilian food one could eat. Meat was good, but the rest of the dishes and desserts were very disappointing. The show is interesting and is supposed to present a bit of the culture of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguai. Not very fancy, but worth seeing if you are a foreign tourist. Just keep in mind that Brazil is a whole lot more than that.
