Very good food however the excruciatingly slow and lackadaisical service makes me unsure about going back.

Came here with great expectations having eaten in these in other country s, but came away very disappointed. They only serve you one type of beef (typically you would get 5-10 different cuts) along with chicken wings, calamari, fish, chorizo and pork. Most were without much flavour. Also the food to go with this was a bowl of cold rice/beans/vegetables - not nice, not typical!

The only good thing was the service where the Latin American waiters were very helpful.

Overall it was a very expensive meal (50dollars per person for the Churrascaria selection) but not at all rewarding.

If you have been to a Churrascaria elsewhere, do not go to this one. If you want a different eating experience with no spices or flavor then come here.

We wait 20 minutes for the entree that was cold and without flavour. There was 4 types of meat and seafood that most of time was overcooked. A real churrascaria have a huge variety of meat!
in two hours seating there we had 3 pieces of meat(small pieces). We lost the patiente and had to leave still hungry and reaaally disapointed. And we were not the only ones, the tables around were complaining as well.
I do not reccomend to anyone.

I took my partner and another couple with me to dinner on Saturday 20/07/2012 to this new place not knowing what to expect as I had heard nothing of it besides on a voucher website.

I must say from the moment that we walked in I knew we were in for an amazing night of food and drinks. The atmosphere is great, and the fact that you can see the BBQ cooking from your table inside and on live video outside was something very different and so cool!

The service from everyone was amazing, the 'meat carvers' that come to your table were able to tell you exactly what it was and how its prepared and cooked along with the traditional names etc of the dish.

The food was unbelievable, we chose the Churrascaria option and recieved a very tasty Brazillian Brushetta - rice and beans and then came the meat.... favorite was the Calamari, however they were all cooked great! It is def a meat lovers fantasy and I would reccomend to anyone! I did also try the deserts.... which i thought may have been to pricy however once seen and tried i would pay double!

I really look forward to heading back there with a few more friends!

Great staff, a novel way to eat (meat lovers will adore it), and the deserts were very yummy.
