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.

This is an upscale Brazilian Rodizio. The salad bar is very good. The service is also good. Would recommend.

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. . .

A bit sterile, but very clean with an amazing variety of high quality meats. If with kids, you won't find a better place in Rio - has a train that rides around above the restaurant.

Absolutely love this place! I visit Rio de Janeiro at least twice a year since 2003 and always visit Rio Brasa in Barra.

I am Brazilian and I've been to many different Brazilian steak houses, both in Brazil and abroad. This is one of the best ones in my opinion.
