During a brief stay in Lisbon, we visited this restaurant twice because we were delighted with the food, service and very friendly staff. The first visit, at lunch time, we opted for the buffet, which included all sorts of salads and a choice of warm dishes. The staff was very attentive and helpful. After this first positive impression, we decided... More

If there is a place to return everything I come to Lisbon is this BBQ place. Mr. Vanderlei is able not only to remind his customers, but their choices in details. He also keep his team always close to the customers need assuring a really high quality service. High recommended !

Great meat and plenty to eat, all really good quality and perfectly cooked. The service was slick, albeit a bit cheesy, but well presented. We were presented with several options and went with the one that was recommended - I guess we just went along with this option, but I suspect you would get much the same if you went... More

Very good meal with excellent service. The speed of delivery of vast quantities of meat makes keeping track of what you're getting difficult for comparison and understanding, but in general all very good so how much does that matter? It keeps coming and doesn't all come once. House wine very good.

Overall this was a very good experience. Pros: Great meat, reasonable price for the package (Rodizio especial). Amazing service with friendly staff. Easy to find location in a nice part of the city. Cons: Salad bar was not great, lots of fried and canned food. Drinks and dessert are very expensive. They tend to ignore the green/red sign for start/top.... More

For all you Americans who love the Fogo de Chao experience, this place is better, friendlier, and cheaper! For about 20 euros/person, you can get unlimited, high-quality meat and a much more interesting salad bar than the same type of restaurants in the US. The service is friendly and personal — they taught us some Portuguese while we ordered! And we just... More

Everything was great! Service, food, MEAT, staff... the salad buffet was awesome, but the "salgadinhos" were incredible! It was like being back in Brazil! I come from Rio Grande do Sul, the state of the real and best "Brazilian barbecue". Therefore, as a gaúcho I've got to say: "Choose the 'Rodízio Especial' and enjoy your time having a fantastic meal!"... More
