“Awesome!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Just got to eat there again for the first time since 2008 and it was even better than I remembered. The meat is incredibily delicious and there is a very large selection. The salad bar is equally great as is the service. I've eaten at many different Brazilian steakhouses and this is by far the best. You definitiely have to try it if you visit Sao Paulo.

“The best churrascaria in town”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

There are plenty of choices for good meat in São Paulo, but if you want the very best, go to Barbacoa. The ambiance is wam and elegant, the service is attentive, and the food is absolutely fantastic.

Reviewed November 29, 2012

Nice food, nice service. But way too expensive. Good idea if you have much money or just want to impress somebody.

Just a great experience in delicious meat and food and wine.
Selection of meats brought to table extensive and tasty.
Great salad bar,too tempting so be careful because lots more food to come.
Service is excellent ,probably best to go with locals who can speak the language to get the best of the experience.
Great wines.
