Back in Braseiro, after 6 or 7 years. And the quality is the same. Excellent. The service is relaxed but professional. One of my favorites spots in the world.

A favorite restaurant. Great atmosphere. Always well patronized. A good sign the food is good. And certainly it was. The picanha was well cooked as were the other accompanying dishes. The quantity size of each dish was good. Certainly worth the money.

The fact that this place is always packed and people are waiting for a table outside in the street speaks for itself. It's where the locals hang out on a lazy Sunday or right after the beach. Not expensive. Tipp: order the picanha it's delicious

Braseiro is one of the best places in Rio to get a traditional Brazilian meal. I highly recommend the Picanha Braseiro, as it is one of the best things in this world and I keep going back to it every time I'm in town!

The picanha we had was splendid. Simply the best we had eaten. The dish comes with a broccoli-rice and fries. And if all this isn't enough they bring you additional farofa with banana. My favorite restaurant in Rio
