They have 2 options: Weekdays € 17,00 and Weekends 21 €. I'm not sure if Fr is also 21 €. I found the meat quality to be very good. They serve the best picanha I have ever ate. Also the meat was not too red as at all the other Rodizio places I have been to. I recall about 6... More

Nice place to spend an easygoing dinner with a couple of friends. Good food for good prices. All you can eat menù with a buffet of sides and a continuos served grilled meat at the table. Service is very kind, a totally informal place. Not for vegans.

Being Brazilian myself and given the poor choice of good Brazilian restaurants in Brussels, I go to this restaurant when I'm feeling carnivorous ;) They have a basic buffet with rice beans, salad and then meat comes to you rodizio style. Not bad, not good. The caipirinhas are delicious though! Service was very good too.

Price is 17€. The food was tasty and the beef is amazing.. I recommend this place if you are looking for a Brazilian taste. The staff are friendly too especially the guy serving the beef

Reasonable price, reasonable taste and rather unatractive place. Correct service. If you are hungry, it's a perfect place to fill your belly with medium quality churasco. Having fun in this restaurant ... that's another story.

This is not a fancy place. Very basic and when you walk in you don't get the best impression, however...I go here a lot with my friends and we love to eat some meat and drink their caipirinhas, have two and let me know. The buffet is small and simple, the feijoada is good! The meat is good and you... More

Very unique ambience, especially as a person who is not familiar with Brazilian culture. For a decent price you can have access to open buffet salad and side dishes bar plus of course the meat that is continuously replenisned at your table. I don't remember ever eating that much meat! Better book in advance though as many people were waiting... More

Visited Bossa Nova having in mind churrascarias in the States. Not even close. Limited variety of meat, the place itself more like an old café at a Portuguese village, small and urging you to leave as soon as possible.

A colleague proposed this place and it is really something different then a regular restaurant. He fortunately 'warned' us not to overdo it on our first run to the salad & side dishes buffet so we would have ample room for the various sorts of meat coming to the table later. We were offered various choices of beef, chicken and... More
