Rio Brasa was everything we hoped it would be - an outstanding Brazilian churascaria serving up a variety of delicious meats in a fun yet upscale atmosphere. From the outstanding service to the delicious meats and buffet options, we were extremely happy with our experience at Rio Brasa. The next time we visit Rio we will be sure to stop... More

We came here for a team lunch on a recommendation and had a wonderful experience. The service was great. The buffet was huge and delicious. The meat selections never ending and mouth wateringly good.

The selection was very good and the food was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The meats were done to perfection and the variety allowed something for everyone. Lots of seafoods - the only thing missing was rice and black beans.

I've never been to a churrasco with such a wide range of meats and side dishes available. Was great to have carts also being wheeled around with offerings too.

you wont leave hungry. The salad bar is very well spread out and it is all fresh. The sushi and sashimi is of good quality. But really the prime rib, beef ribs and flank steak my most favorite followed up with some garlic rolls. You will fall into a meat coma.

The place is at least 30 minutes away from the ipanema area. It's a standalone building. The staff are friendly. The... More

Our friend recommended we dine at this restaurant. It was a great choice. Like most Brazilian steak houses the meat just keeps coming to you. But in addition there was a wide variety of other dishes on the buffet counter. I opted for some excellent sushi before settling into the multiple choices of meat and poultry. We finished by selecting... More

Rio Brasa is the best Brazilian steakhouse or "churrascaria" that I've ever eaten at. My wife and I lived in Rio for ten years and ate at the Brasa on a number of occasions. The Lowdown. . .
