This was included in one of our post trip excursions with Princess Cruise Line. It was fantastic. The salad bar was amazing, and i never expected such a variety of meats to follow. I was able to get mine rare and they kept coming back with more. I don't know when I have eaten so much. They served: Picanha (Rump... More

The moment I arrive, a waiter grabs my shoulder to ask if I want a drink. On the tablecloths, more than a couple of holes. The food is substandard and overpriced. And my chair broke, causing me to almost get seriously hurt. No one offered an apology.

This a large restaurant that looks a bit like a canteen - but don't be put off. Staff are very attentive. You go to an excellent salad bar first to stock up and then come back to your table. The waiters then bring a continuous supply of beautifully cooked meats. Multiple cuts of beef, pork, chicken - some with added... More

A group of us there on 20/9/16. In addition to food, we had a bootle of wine. Our wine of 81 Real was billed for 100 Real with standard 10 % service charge. When pointed out to the waiter, he offered no apologies and came back with new bill of correct amount of 81 Real but 10% service charge of... More

Friends and I dined at this restaurant. We had a superb experience. The meat (mostly beef, but also chicken and sausage) kept coming. It was all perfectly cooked. If you've not been to a churrascaria (apologies for my spelling) before, the staff bring the basics (rice, chips, etc) to the table, then start bring meat on long skewers and slicing... More

My husband and I loved this food experience and would recommend. From our time in Brazil, including a cruise on the Amazon, trip to Manus and Iguassu Falls it has been the best food!

We went here for the Churrascurria experience while we were in rio. I should note that my only experience with this is pampa in canada. Having said that...I loved this. The staff was very attentive and always on hand. Meat after meat after meat came to us, so much that we couldn't keep up. The wine was good. The salad... More

House where waiters bring restlessly to your table several distinct cuts of four legged cattle and some other tasty meats.

First, we enjoyed a serious caipirinha for a very reasonable price. That said, though, compared with Fogo de Chao in Atlanta, GA, a similar Brazilian BBQ restaurant, the sides on the buffet were limited and the meats not as high quality. We were also disappointed that no lamb was served. We ate, it was fine, but the drink was really... More
