“Consistently delicious, though not cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Living within walking distance of Majorica, we are tempted to go there often, but prefer to save it for special occasions. The food is consistently delectable; we have never been disappointed. For a special combination, try the sliced picanha, with their Prussian potatoes and farofa with banana.
Unbeatable trio!
Our last meal for three came to under $80, including one dessert, no wine. The service is always better than average with veteran waiters and the tables are full, especially on the weekend. Go early or after 9 P.M. Avoid it for a normal Sunday lunch; the wait is too long.

“Great meat, great service, but unfortunately much more expensive than it should be.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

One of the best places for meat in town, no doubt. Excellent service. Unfortunately, prices are now very high, and the size of the meals is smaller. They are now better options in Rio for the sam price. A pity. It is a magic place, but there are limits for the magic, and they crossed it.

“Best Steak in a long, long, long time (and I am from Texas)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Recommended by our hosts, the food, the service, and the atmosphere did not disappoint and only made for the most memorable of evenings.
The steak was mouth-watering and had a full spectrum of flavor.
It is all grass fed beef.
The service , the wine, the sides only enhanced and complemented the excellent steak.
I would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend to anyone who wants to treat themselves to an excellent evening of dining.

“The Best Beef in Rio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Whenever we come to Rio we head for Majorica tucked away in Senador Vergueiro a very discreet door opens into an amazing buzzing restaurant. We had not been since the fire and the remodelling has changed little. A very traditional Churrascaria with gentlemenly, slightly elderly waiters it offers some fo the best meats in Rio. Somewhere in its history it has Spanish roots, hence the name and its style and service resembles the traditional Asadores of the Basque Country or other parts of Spain. Simple cuts of great quality meat prepared on an open fire accompanied by great fries, excellent vegetables and some ice cold beer , caipirinhas or wine from a good selection.
All good restaurants in Rio are now quite expensive and do not expect the bill to be less than Euro 50.- a head, without wine but well worth it.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

This churrascaria doesn´t have the traditional Brazilian rodízio. Nevertheless, you should pay a visit here.

For starters try the pork saussage (linguïça).

For the meal you have several options. My prefered one is the fraldinha. But there are other excellent choices like the picanha or filet-mignon.

Drink as many chopps (Brazilian draft beer) as you can!
