“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Food was great (had the buffet style), meat was great. Staff were amazing, went above to help me figure out what I could eat (due to dietary restrictions).

“Nice Selection of food, but crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We were in the mood for experimenting so we all picked the buffet. That was a mistake as the buffet area is quite small and children were pushing past everyone then blocking access to everyone else while the mother only added to the backup by doing pretty much the same. The staff did nothing to alleviate it. We stood there almost 10 minutes without moving.

The steak was tough but good tasting if you could find a tender spot. The ribs were great and the salad bar nice. Of course the children were not crowding the salad bar area as they preferred the meats and fried foods.

“Nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

The food was lovely, if you have buffet style you get the choice of 3or4 meats and then help yourself to salds, veg, chips. also on offer beef strogonoff,mousaka. the only thing i did not like they added your tip onto the bill which was 15% then still expected you to leave more.

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Not sure what to expect but it was a pleasant surprise. The interior is simple and worn but the service and food was great. Authentic food and Brazilian staff. Nice with the options A La Carte, Buffet with 4 meats and the Rodisio (12 different meats served at the table).
My Brazilian wife loved it too and that says it all.

“Great surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Although the noise put us off , we were rewarded w great service, excellent food ( w the exception of the carved meat which is the draw) the meat was overdone and too salty
They give you three different ways
to order: off the menu, a table side carver , or the buffet
Everything at salad bar is fresh, tasty and well prepared
The rice , beans and plantains etc were just right as were the dessert fruits
Would go back except if meat is still salty etc, it isn't worth the price
There are two different, lower prices
Under 5 and under 12
