“Great meat, great view, way overpriced!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

You wont find better meat in Rio. It is just brilliant. The trouble is it is just so expensive. Drinks are also overpriced.
The service was great, salad bar brilliant too. great view over the bay back towards Sugar Loaf. I just cant justify the cost for the meal. It's for the wealthy only. Luckily I wasn't paying £70 ($112)per person.

“Worth if you don't pay the bill !”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I alredy went to fogo de chao de BH, SP and I have been disappointed by this one. The buffet was limited with not a great choice compared to other churrascarias. Service was OK and the meat, I admit, was excellent. But you pay the price and the bill is very high compared to some restaurant of this type in Rio de Janeiro. Good option, if you don't have to pay the bill or if you have a business dinner.

“Disapointing”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Arrived with big expectations after being in the one in Houston but left disapointed.
Rodizio is all about tasting all the different cuts but I was only offered 4 and actually had to ask for some of them
Caipirinhas are also average
The modern fancy room/service is a big contrast of the Gaucho way of living they're trying to serve
Looses by miles to their main competitor Porcao

“Great meat! However, too noisy and crowded”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

The formula is simple: a buffet for the starters, and then meat as much as you can eat! The meat is ally good, and they serve more than 10 different cuts. The service is really good, always trying to please. However, they focus a lot on pushing you to order more drinks.

The only con is the place is too noisy and crowded. Nice restaurant in all for meat lovers!!
