I had heard people talk about Brazilian steakhouses, but I had never been to one until I went to Carnaval on a recent business trip. The decor is very nice and the staff very friendly. As advertised, you can eat as much beef, lamb, and chicken as you wish. The food is much, much better than you would find at... More

If you are a meat lover, you definitely want to stop here. The food is on a skewer which is on a rotisserie. The gauchos come walk around to your table and slice off pieces of meat.

Skewers of meat cut in front of you by different servers. All you can eat steak, chicken, pineapple. You will be very full when you leave. Prep yourself by building a great appetite before going and you will be fine. They also have a very nice salad bar to hit before the main course. Enjoy the experience and great food.

Salad bar was great. The main food was average but with high price. Too expensive for what you get..

Atmosphere is above average with noise at a level that allows some conversation. When busy, it takes some time to receive your "meat on a stick" from the various servers walking the floor. The buffet style salad bar has some good eats that compliment the main courses well. In general, cleanliness is above normal. The only downside to this establishment... More

There was a wonderful, fun environment with a full buffet and salad bar. All meats were brought to your table by waiters offering each new item. The meats were wonderfully prepared and there was even grilled pineapple with a sugar and cinnamon glaze. Very nice!

A very unique experience overall and delicious food. The different meats are very good. There is chicken, lamb, steak, and barbequed pork. The salad bar has many, many selections. The prices were reasonable... be sure to mention if you are a senior citizen. Great evening out. You won't regret it. My retirement party with girlfriends was held there. It was... More

We have never been disappointed with our dining experiences at Carnival. The salads and soups are exceptionally fresh and delicious. The Gauchos are knowledgeable and provide prompt service. We welcome the opportunity to take our out of town guests for a special dinner here.

Excellent atmosphere and staff. Attention to your needs at all times. It was wonderful to be able to hold a conversation without yelling across the table.
