“Popular, crowded but god”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

It is a popular place to go. The meals (lots of meat) are served at the table, which means that a waiter comes by and askes you where you want "his meat" on nyour plate. The waiters are walking arounjd with "sables" where the meat is picked on. The meat could be: beaf, pork, buffalo, sausges, etc. The meal (fixed price) include the salade bar, Drinksd are not included.
The place is best with a group: lots of fun.

“Grilled meat could be better, but still an option for Brazilian BBQ in the Netherlands”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

There are not many Brazilian restaurants in the Netherlands. So this is an option, but although the name already states, it's far from having a really good "rodízio". The system called "rodízio" is very popular for BBQ in Brazil and it stared in my state, Rio Grande do Sul, the place from Brazilian cowboys.

The system here in Den Haag is similar: there is a reasonable buffet with salads and some warm dishes, like withe rice, black beans, lasanha…and the meat is served at your table with waiters going around having the meat at sticks. There are options of sausages, chicken, pork and different cuts of meat, including the Brazilian "picanha". Besides that, is also served at your table French fries, fired cassava and fried bananas.

Unfortunately, the quality of the grilled meat is far behind from what you find in Brazil.

The environment is nice and central in Scheveningen and staff is very friendly and effective. Many Brazilians of course, and it can be quite noise if you are not used to Brazilians chatting.

It seems that they have shows with Brazilian music, but that day it didn't.

“Delicious meat, but waiter put a damper on everything. Brace yourself groupon coupon owners.”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We went there with groupon discount. No samba since we came early (17:00). The buffet selection was OK but it did not have sushi that they advertise on the website. The meat, delicious! although some of them were on the salty side. The waiters who sliced the meat were nice. We were served with meat for 40mins then with the pineapple which I guess is the sign that the meal is done since after that the meat stopped coming and our plates were taken away

While we were eating, different waiters came to ask whether we needed another drink or not. I found this really annoying since it has not been one hour since we arrived and our glasses were more than half full. The third waiter who came to ask for drinks was really rude, he came and touched my boyfriend's (now one-third full) cocktail glass, tilted it a bit to see how full it was and asked "is this finished?" (For the record, it was still one hour and 10 mins since we arrived). My jaw dropped, could not believe the level of service(or should I say humiliation) the waiter was giving us. I do understand that they don't make a lot of profit with groupon but that does not justify the ridiculous length they went to increase their profit margin. I think if I had come without the groupon, the treatment would have been different (seeing from the good reviews others gave here). So groupon coupon owners, set your expectation low for this one!

“Average experience, Average food, High prices”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Having been to a Brazilian restaurant in Brazil, the experience was very different. We expected alot more at Rodizio. The music was loud, the dancers/entertainment was a very poor performance. The meat was very salty, the drinks were pricey, waiters were friendly.
Unfortunately my wife got ill from the salad bar.

The only positive was the pineapple.

“GOOD NIGHT OUT”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Went here with a large group and it was a good night. The food is good and there is plenty of it,if you don,t turn your beer mat over to red it keeps coming.Can,t comment on the price as it was a paid block booking.A little constructive criticism, a bit more space between customers would be great ( for the staff as well ). The serve yourself buffet for starters was fantastic and the samba dancers were terrific but with their lovely long hair they should be away from the lovely buffet.But all in all a great place to go to.
