We all ordered pichanha(beef cut) medium rare which came very cooked. Very expensive for small portion. Another tourist trap. Service was nice but like in most places in Brazil, staff don't speak English. Avoid.

Went for dinner on a Tuesday night, live Tango Night, and had a Tango artist, singing and playing the accordion, giving the place a great ambience. The food was delicious, T Bone steak and Bife Chorizo outstanding, but the salads and roast chicken excellent too!...More

Really enjoyed an evening of terrific tango music. Meat could have been cooked better though. Service poor. Go on Tuesday for the music and worth it then.

We loved the look and feel of this place so we stopped in for dinner. Wow it was great. They have a Churrasco meat sampler which has enough for 3-4 people that was great. Beef, chicken, pork, all superb. The potato sides were amazing too....More
