“Good Food, Good price, typical Restaurant.”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We like this restaurant every time we go. It is not fancy. We enjoy going before 1pm so that it's not crowded.

“Typical Carioca Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Nothing better to do after the beach on saturday or sunday then have a late lunch at Braseiro with friends, drinking a cold beer and having traditional local barbecue.

“Always busy, but worth the visit”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is a simple place, not fancy at all, but the food is very well prepared and with good quality.
The place is a nice place for an after beach lunch. Just go without being in a hurry, once most likely you will need to wait a bit. While waiting, have a beer and their famous saussage.
For mian course, the picanha is a must. Choose the side dishes you like the most, but here goes two suggestions, the potato chips (portuguesa) and the farofa brasileira. Mainly the chips, just excellent.
The place is also a very nice place, later at night, for hanging out in the region, with lots of nice people around.
Enjoy it.

“Tasty and Filling Steaks”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Located away from the tourist belt and beaches. This is a restaurant serving very good Brazilian meat, fish and chicken cuisine . This is very popular with locals . The sirloin steaks were very tender and delicious, however, it was not served very hot. The fries that went with it were crisp. . Make sure that you order everything and ask all that you need from the waiter before he leaves your table , or else you would have a difficult time calling them back . It really gets busy during lunch . However , there are chairs outside for wait listed patrons.

“Mmmm so good”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

This place has the best food in Rio. My fiancé and I were reffered here. The staff was very helpful bcuz we didn't speak Portuguese , the owner came over and had a conversation with us. He told us what to eat, and made sure we always had our food fast. The sausages they give you to snack on are delicious , and the beef is second to none. Very clean , neat well mannered staff. When your done they seal all your leftovers up to go. The owner gave us 2 t-shirts for free. 5star food
