I believe the very first Churrascaria in Rio, if not Brasil. Not usually on the tourist trail but from the old school. You sellect your raw meat and they cook it to perfection. Served by professional waiters, in whites and bow tie, nothing is too...More

Old churrascaria , service is good, wines from south America AND some from Europe. But meat was hard. No waiter speaks english, altough they have a short menu written in english.

When we arrived there there were about four waiters, leading us to the table, giving us menus and putting bread, bruschetta, olives etc etc on the table. We asked if that is included, if everyone got that but nobody replied us. It was all quite...More

If you do not enjoy the "Rodizio" System (where they bring meat on a spit to all the tables), this is the place to go. Best cut of meat is the "Ponta da Picanha" – juicy, tender & tasty.

It is one of the best traditional "Churrascarias" in Rio de Janeiro. The meat is very good , the same with the service. It is only working at less than 50% as a fire destroyed the restaurant in January 2012.

When you go to Majorica, ask for the "Picanha especial", and and portuguese chips on the side. But don't forget the beer, of course!. This is simply the best barbecue in the city. I'm a frequent customer, since 15 years old, not only in Rio...More

I have been frequenting the Churrascaria Majorica since the end of 1978 and it has always been my favorite. Forget the churrascarias de rodizio (espeto corrido) where the waiters keep trying to stab spits of meat into your plate but they just do not have...More

Good meats, though no "rodizio" (no buffet served on table). Meats are ordered in an "a la carte" basis only. Hard to find a place to park, if you are driving down there.
