Fabulous meat (Picanha is mouth watering), and the buffet is wonderfully presented and fresh. The place itself is smart and understated and the service excellent.

Wow, this is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in Sao Paulo. The restaurant is pretty big, and although it was full tonight it didn't feel particularly crowded or noisy. They serve a delicious bread basket (don't go too crazy, because you'll fill up too fast). The salad buffet is impressive! By far the most beautiful salad buffets... More

This was a disappointing visit. Though generous, the salad bar is naive and medium-grade. The meat is a mixed bag: some cuts are juicy and delicious, others just mediocre. The accompanying sauces are so-so. The staff are surprisingly aloof and chilly. They didn't make it clear that the dessert trolley was not included in the price so I got stung... More

The buffet was really good with different salads, cheese, etc Rice, fries and other warm things are offered at the table during the Rodizio which is a really good method as nothing gets cold at the table. The quality of the meat was amazing. The staff was really friendly and helpful.

Excellent quality beef, super salad bar, uptight ambient. Don't miss any of the dishes! In a few words, the best churrascaria I have been to.

Never been to a place where you get an anatomical picture of an animal and you have to point out the part of the animal you want to taste and they would serve a grilled/BBQ piece within a minute. It was an experience!

Great experience! We found the restaurant by searching in the internet and we were surprised by their site, which is excellent with a lot of information and gives you the opportunity to be prepared for the excellent meat that you are going to eat at their restaurant. They list the chief Barbacoa cuts of meat, and describe their features and... More

Delicious meat comes out one after another. You will fail if you eat a lot of salads. The wine was also delicious. I was full of stomach and I could not eat dessert. That's a pity.

We came here for my husband's birthday. He's been here before but it was my first time. The restaurant decoration is a little old school but very classy and warm still. No doubt, service is outstanding. We were always surrounded by many servers either offering us meat or ready to help us (at times, a step ahead of what you... More

This place has all that you can ask in a churrascaria. Good set of meat well groomed and a really good buffet of salad and side dishes. The service is really good and the price reasonable for the food and services you get. Just go there, bring appetite and have a real good meaty dinner.
