“Better than one year ago”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I went there one year ago and they were in the Groupon like offer. They were very popular and crowded. I went there now and I feel a better climate, with more refined salad buffet, selected, but very good meats which included lamb, meat, boar, pheasant, fish, shrimp, a reasonable list of wines, juice and desserts.
If you ask to the waiter he can bring a diagram showing the equivance of the Brazilian name of the meats to the English names which is very useful for the foreign tourists that understand English.
The waiters are very courteous and it was not crowdedas before but as it was Monday night. this could be the reason.
The only downside is that now they charge a small amount to park the car, but it worthwhile to eat without any worry.
I recommend.

“Poor service”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It took around ten minutes before anyone came by are table with meat after we had switched the indication to green. After a while they turned down the lights where we were sitting to show the Corinthians game, a game the personnel were watching and not the guests, hence even worse service. I have lived in SP for two years and this was the all time low.

“Good selection of meats, salad bar”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This place is a good location in Sao Paulo if you want to eat meat and do not care too much at the different hot plate offers or the sushi, which is very low level. Lately, prices have been driven up by unknown reasons, as the meat is very cheap in Brazil. Also the meat is very salted, and this is done on purpose so you order lots of drinks that cost more than the normal brazilian prices, with the excuse that it's the traditional way to do the meat. Total BS.
Also, be prepared to eat a lot, so come here only if you are very hungry.
Price is reasonable if you compare to other upmarket churrascarias in Sao Paulo, which are now charging stratosferic prices for a country where the minimum wage is 250 USD.
Anyway, the meat is tasty, the fresh salads are good and the meat selection is thorough, where you get beef in many different ways, lamb, pork, chicken, phaesant, wild boar, sausages, shrimps, fish, etc.
It's a good option, though it's not the best of all.
Tip: on evenings, ladies pay half, and this is an important fact if you are to go with your family.

“Great surprise”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This restaurant was a great surprise. We asked the Front Desk at the hotel (located next to the Transamerica Expo Center, far from everything) about dinner options. They called the restaurant and they sent a car to pick-up us. That was the beginning of a very positive experience.

The area near the restaurant is not the most beautiful but the restaurant's decor and the friendly of the staff makes you feel comfortable as soon as you step-in.

The quality of the meat was very good and the salad bar was not limited to just lettuce. It offered a big variety of vegetables, salads, side dish options: potatoes, rice, puree, .... If that is not enough, at the table the water is constantly serving delicious varieties of bread: pao de queijo, garlic bread, etc. etc. Very good quality for a decent rate compare to other Churrascarias. This one even include dessert!

After a good dinner we were driven back to the hotel with no extra charge.

Strongly recommended!
