Brazilian barbecue "rodizio" is one of the most delicious ways to understand flavor in term of meat. They will serve you at least 15 different cuts of red meat and some other, you have a salad buffet that has a variety of other than salad such cheeses, ham, mushrooms, olives and the traditional lettuce and tomato. Dessert? YES! I had... More

At first we thought, that this must be a kind of bad joke... but then it turned out to be the truth: Never ever in Brazil I had such bad meat quality!!! And definitely never ever payed such a high price for this rubbish!! - Don't go there!!! The starter buffet was quite nice but nothing really special. Service was... More

Went here for business dinner. Looking for a good place, the Fogo de Chao is a certainty. Have been at this chain at different cities as well and this one makes par. Great salad bar and professional staff and friendly. Only this time the assortment of servings was smaller else it would have been 5 star.

We chose this restaurant for our last night in Salvador. It was awesome. Great food with meats of every variety. Nice ambience. Definitely NOT kid friendly. Salad bar. Mid range price ($50 +)

It is a bit pricy but the choice of meat is excellent and the buffet cannot be better and richer in choice. We asked for a certain bottle of wine. They showed us a wine much higher in cost when they brought it to the table. Also, unfortunately when we asked for our taxi driver they said he'd be too... More

Fogo de Chao is quite expensive but is definitely worth it if you're a meat lover! For a set price you get access to a buffet of salads and vegetables, then waiters come round constantly with different plates of meat. The meat is delicious, especially the rump steak and the chicken! Unfortunately the ribs weren't as good as we were... More

Better come with empty stomach. Abundant in flavors, juicy and soft different types of great South American beef, lamb or pork will surely satisfy your carnivorous hunger. Keep your token green up! And Indulge yourself. Good wine card should compliment fantastic experience. Vegetarians, if decide to come to a place renowned for its great selection of meats, can walk up... More

Not inexpensive - but a very good dining experience. Fabulous salad bar to compliment the sea of meat!! Nice wine list and very pleasant staff... Excellent cuts of meat, good sausages too... The usual fixed price all you can eat set-up (excluding drinks and deserts).
