Went to Agora for a business lunch today. And it was packed... I had a salad and all meat. I really enjoyed the skirt steak and filet wrapped in bacon. I passed on the chicken, sausage and lamb. I will return, but not for awhile....More

Churrascaria - a Brazilian Steak House in the “Rodizio” style. A great variety of different cuts of meat, such as beef, chicken, pork and lamb are cooked on an open fire and carved table-side by traditionally dressed Gaucho (local ranchers from the south of Brazil). The fixed- price menu includes an extensive hot and cold salad bar that features fresh salads and vegetable dishes as well as delicious seafood dishes.
