“World Cup Final after party ”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We ate here after the World Cup final and it was awesome! The food is excellent and the service was the best experienced so far in Rio. Well worth the price tag and loads of fun. A great location and an awesome meaty experience all round.

“Not the same, go elsewhere”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

If you have never been to another Fogo de Chao you will find this churrascaria satisfactory. If you have, you will be disappointed. At Fogo de Chao you will pay triple the price of any other churrascaria in Brazil. Normally it is worth it. At this branch however you will be wasting your money. The meat is reasonable but the service is extremely poor and in no way reflective of a traditional Gaucho churrascaria. Certainly not worth the money. Go elsewhere. You are in Rio, enjoy other cuisines more typical of this beautiful city.

“Lots of meat”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Typical chain of Chucarrasco Brazilian restaurant. They operate a chain of restaurants around the Americas. Better branch in Washington DC. Service poor bringing food around before we had plates. Smart venue and clean. Good meat and lots of it. Expensive and only for tourists I imagine as that was all that was there on the night.
