“Bit of an upside down review really”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Awesome place and the food looked superb... BUT being a vegetarian its not the place to be.
However if your a meat eater it would be paradise ! So, superb place, great food but not for vegetarian people.

“You will gain weight here”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Make sure you dedicate not only enough time to eat and properly enjoy your meal, but to digest as you spend the rest of the night moving slowly from satisfaction. Don't waste your time on the salad bar. You can get that stuff anywhere. Focus your hunger on the meats that the gaucho waiters bring to your table and cut for you. Don't eat too fast, else you fill up too quickly!

“Birthday dinner for 30”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated a birthday at the Chima on July 5th. Chima offered a convenient and reasonable group package for our party of 30 persons, and the Sales & Event Manager Nicole was very helpful. I made the plans from Norway, and the rest of the guests came from midwest, East and West coasts, and Norway, so none of is had ever been here before. The entrance to the hotel is impressive in the evening with the lit banyan tree The food was great, the service excellent and the caipirinhas FANTASTIC! The salad buffet and the table side serving of grilled meat is a convenient way to accomodate a large group. We chose the late seating at 9 pm and the wait staff were very patient about letting our party linger, and waiting to close our our check. (The small hiccups of 1. Having to wait for our table and 2. table not beng setting for correct number of persons were not problems for us based on rest of positive experience).
