Really nice place to eat, the head chef comes out with meat on a stick and cuts it off right in front of you. Great place and really nice atmosphere. Definitely go if you are in the area.

Loved the picanha set menu with all the trimmings. Rice, beans, farofa, molho campanha, banana and loads of perfectly cooked picanha, maminha and linguiça. A good evening with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. We will be back!!

Despite the frosty (nearly offputing) welcome we really enjoyed the meal. The bearded guy must have been having a bad day. The food was really enjoyable and the service turned out to be alright and even pleasant in the end. The bill was way lower...More
