Very nice restaurant. We were sit in a table with a widow near a magnificent view of the bay. A lot of food in the salad and entrance area you have to restrain yourself for the outcome. The sistem of the rodizio with the stop and go has to take advantadge in the beggining when the waiters now you are a newcomer, so ask for a second plate to put the all the food there so you can actually eat in peace and relax without worryng you skip something.... just go and enjoy

This restaurant was a great experience to have while in Rio. It is expensive, yes, but I have never seen so many diverse buffet and meat options. We went to similar churrascaria restaurants that had similar offerings, but were not up to par and charged differently for the buffet (for example, the sushi portion of the buffet was more, etc.), but this place charges just one price for access to everything. The meat was delicious, and the view was fabulous. Beware that they do rush you somewhat. I thought that the meat would come around more than once, so when I had a full plate I would sometimes decline the current meat being circulated. However, they do not usually come around again, and if you do not speak Portuguese to ask for it again, you might be out of luck! Also, I thought given the expensive price of the meal (we went for lunch) that the restaurant may be somewhat formal, but this was a misconception. Everyone was dressed very casually and it was very relaxed.

This is the typical churrascaria style steak house. The meat is excellent and the wine list is extensive. It has a very good salad bar and the service is very good also. I just couldn't stop asking for more picanha, it is so good you keep eating and eating and eating.
If you are looking for a truly Brazilian cuisine and experience, this is the best place in Rio de Janeiro with no doubt.

if you wanna to try a great variety of brazilian's meat cut this is the place, here is offered a great variety of hot plates, fish and salad on the buffet, and a wide variety cuts of beef including pork, lamb, chicken, fish, cow and some exotic meat served on rodizio barbecue style.

they have over priced desserts but if you want try paid attention on petit gateu, or profiteroles. they was great.

the staff is every time very attentive and polite.

is a little bit over priced pushing down the cost/benefits relation with the excuses of a wide variety of cuts, and the place.

remains a great place to go

Take a plethora of meats grilled to perfection to cater your tastes, add a voluptious salad & sushi buffet, a nice selection of wines and other drinks (including the many variations of the national Brazilian drink: caipirinha) and marry all these items with one of the best spots to see and take photos of Sugar Loaf mountain (Pão de Açúcar), then you will understand why this is one of the best places to eat/drink/visit while you are in Rio de Janeiro! It is excellent to go with your whole family, with your friends or for a business lunch/dinner.
