I'm actually a pescatarian (I eat fish but no red meat or poultry) but my friend really wanted to try this place. It's actually a pretty good deal (approximately $45USD/person) considering the amount of food they offer. I did try a couple of pieces of (very well done) steak and it was very savory. My friend loved the flavor of the meat but I have to say the thing that stood out most for me was the standard of excellence with all the restaurant staff. They were friendly, responsive, patient, attentive, and knowledgeable.

This is a great restaurant for those who have done a lot of walking and worked up a big appetite! The restaurant is huge so there's no need to book, even during the peak lunch hours. The meats are varied and delicious as are all of the salads and sides on offer. It's quite pricey though - nearly 400 reals for 2 people for food and a few beers.

This place never fails - it's the very best place in town for good, quality Brazilian BBQ. Don't be tricked into eating a bunch of filler starches - turn over your token and get started with the meat-fest right away. The meat is generally beef - in various cuts. The lamb, I think, isn't the best. Try the famous picanha for sure. The grilled cheese (not of the sandwich variety) is fabulous. The fillet with parmesan cheese baked on the outside is also worth a slice. They have delicious ostrich and buffalo meat in the kitchen too, but you have to ask for it -- insiders tip :)

When you've had enough, hit the salad bar for a bit of cool, crispness, and to give yourself a break from meat, meat, meat.

I take all of my friends who visit me to the location in Ipanema. When I go during the day, however, anytime before dark, the Flamengo location is worth the trek if you can get in to sit near a window with a view of the bay and Sugar Loaf Mountain from sea level.

I've experienced Fogo de chao, Montana Grill, Texas de Brazil which are all you can eat brazilian steakhouse. Porcao is the BEST you'll find. I've never eaten so much in my entire life! This place will bend over backwards to make sure your service is perfect. They also have a fantastic wine selection and plenty of desserts to choose from and their meat cuts are impeccable!

I have been here in the past and it is really one of the best places for Churrscaria in the world. The view is amazing, you should walk around the grounds down by the ocean. The BBQ is really top notch. They make the best of everything. If you are in Rio, go here, it is required.
