“Wow - the Brazilians do Steak right!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

An excellent dinner. One of the best meals I have enjoyed in Sao Paulo.

Service was impeccable - and you would expect that for meals costing $100/person.

The menu was huge - one page for Argentinian steaks, another page for Brazilian steaks, and yet another page of US steaks. The meat was grilled to near perfection.

Excellent wines - we chose a wonderful Argentinian.

Highly recommended

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

A real 5* experience, arguably the best steak restaurant in the country! Service and quality is a given the second you step onto the kerb outside. The table staff are brilliant and the food and wine unbeatable. They took us into the kitchen to inspect the meat and meet the chefs, it was really great. The venue is beautifully finished - I can't rate it highly enough - "excellent" is the minimum this restaurant deserves! Recommend the 5 meats taster menu!

“Impressing athmosphere”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

For me it was te first time in a brazilian grill restaurant.
The restaurant has plenty of tables, I could immagine which athmosphere it would have if it is full.
you catch some salad a the salad bar and than, every two secounds there is a new waiter comming to you with a huge stick of meat. He cuts you a small slice and disappearces. If you are a slow eater, it is not the right place for you. Also not if you are a vegetarian. I really enjoyed the excellent taste of the different meats ( and fishs).
Also the pineapple and banana are wonderful. I have also tasted the maracuja dessert which i really liked. My colleagues told me that the papaya sorbet also was a dream.
To the prices I can't say anything because it was a business invitation.
