Great place and attention. Waiter served us requested meat cuts at desired doneness!!! If you are careful with drinks consumption, price is good. But if it's an special occasion, wine selection is good

We went to Faisca do Brazil just before the COVID lockdown went into effect and sincerely regret we don’t get to go back before leaving El Salvador. They lay out a terrific spread for a buffet, but to be honest we were there for the meat and sampled little from the buffet other that plating a simple salad. The table service was fantastic. They weren’t especially busy, so the staff was coming around fairly frequently. I don’t recall all the cuts that came around (though they were the usual for this style restaurant). However, they were all very good to outstanding - and we all had meat sweats by the time we left! If you get the chance to go on a Sunday do it! Make your reservation for right at 12 noon though.

Came here with our family local to San Salvador of which none had ever been. If you like the traditional Brasilian steakhouse, you'll like this with a tropical flare. The have amazing sushi, ceviche and cocktail de camarrones. Great atmosphere and staff is very attentive. Would highly recommend the restaurant!!!

A great dining experience, great selection of food and they keep it coming. Nice atmosphere. I gave it 4 stars because the table service aside from the BBQ skewers was not great, didn't come around to offer more water, wine/drinks etc unless you flagged them down, took quite a while to get the bill. A bit pricier than I expected. Very busy, make a reservation.

We went on Valentine's day for lunch and the food was great. Our waiter was Julio and he was super nice and kind. He really took care of our needs and made our lunch really pleasant. He is a great asset for this restaurant.

WORST ATTENTION EVER. THE RESTAURANT WAS COMPLETELY EMPTY. THEY MADE US WAIT AND SAID THEY HAD TO CHECK FOR RESERVATIONS. TERRIBLE TONE AND TREATMENT. I WAS ALREADY ADVISED NOT TO GO BY FRIENDS THAT SAIS THE FOOD HAD DECAYED BUT I CONSIDERED THAT MY LAST EXPERIENCES HAD BEEN GOOD. TO MY SURPRISE I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO EAT ON THE EMPTY EMPTY RESTAURANT BECAUSE THEIR INCOMPETENT SERVICE. MAYBE MY FRIENDS MEANT THAT THE SERVICE WAS AWFUL. YOU LOST YOUR ONLY CUSTOMERS ON A SUNDAY... GOOD LUCK.

Could not wait to write this review. What happened to this place? It USED to be great... now it's GARBAGE. It's the most expensive buffet in San Salvador and it is completely ripping people off. The buffet was lacking high quality and expensive ingredients. It now has cheap cheese, the kind you eat for breakfast, NOT the kind you eat while you drink a glass of wine. The grilled vegetables were nicely presented and made you want to eat them, but when you do, it is COLD and dry... definitely not what you would expect since they were nicely presented. The waiters had 2 captains, who's responsibility is to make sure all tables are being served and attended to. BOTH of them spent the whole time (the 60 minutes we were there) standing by the kitchen door chatting and getting to know each other. We obviously had an OK service, due to the fact that our waiter was making a huge effort, compensating for the lack of leadership from the captains. The meat was way over cooked, almost all the cuts of meat had burned sears all round. Seems like no chef was present. The sad part is that people (customers) are nice and somewhat neive and just accept whatever this "great quality" restaurant serves them. Terrible eww

The Faisca do Brasil is in the InterContinental Hotel in San Salvador. It's specialty is the continuous serving of various meats, known as "rodizio" style. Patrons pay a set price for all-you-can-eat, aside from drinks. My first visit was in 2019. Great selections of scrumptious high-quality meat were served, including ribeye, culotte, and skirt-steak, in addition to shrimp, chicken, and pork. Tables were set with extensive offerings for salad and other accompaniments, and a generous selection was found at the dessert table. It was an entirely satisfactory experience, and the price was commensurate with quality. My second, and final, visit was last week. Quality has plummeted to outrageously poor, while prices have risen sharply ($45 including the base cost, a soda, and a coffee). Instead of a continuous flow of delicious meat, the offering is now occasional rations of tiny bits of extremely overcooked beef. I mean tiny: usually an inch in diameter, rendered nearly inedible by too long over the fire, so devoid of juices that they were nearly mummified. This is the way that supposed ribeye and skirt-steak was served - I write "supposed" because those burned bits could have been anything. Culotte was circulated but once, and while it was sliced off a visible larger piece, it too was cooked beyond recognition. Three small shrimp made their appearance - dry and tough. Pork was sampled - very fatty and possible less cooked than the beef. Chicken and unattractive commercial sausages were seen but not tasted. The tables with accompaniments and desserts were very much reduced to spartan rations. I urge any and all meat lovers to eat elsewhere. San Salvador has several steak houses where you can enjoy quality meat cooked to your preference...and you will spend much less.

The restaurant is located in one of the best hotels in El Salvador. From the start the pandemic measures are well set in place at the door, while measuring your temperture and sanitizing your hands and shoes. About the food, there is a wide variety of meats, from chicken, beef, pork and shimp. It as an all you can eat restaurant, so basically eat all you want. The boucherie is very fresh, and tasteful. Service wise, it is increadible people are very friendly and are constantly asking for your favorite piece of meat. Also the sides available for rhe day. If you want the firsts cuts of the recently cooked steak ask for Julio Ascevedo he is your guy. He will bring to your table meat to your table however you want it cooked. As a manager mr Samuel if you have and suggestions or concerns he will be glad to solve any of your issues.
