The lamb was to die for. It was hands down my favorite of all the meats. But there are so many different types and cuts. Definitely worth it. The drinks are perfect, ambiance is great. The whole area the restaurant is in, is amazing. You feel like you're in Brazil.

I am obsessed with Brazilian steak houses and eat there at least 3 times a month. I live near San Antonio which has four of them and have frequented all of them. I always look for this type of establishment wherever I travel so was pleased to see one not far from where I was staying. My experience has been... More

This was our second visit to Chima. A fun time for a large group, we had eight people. Staff is very attentive, food is amazing! I suggest eating light all day to save up for dinner!

We arrived right on time for happy hour and we had delicious (if not the best) caipirinhas (traditional Brazilian cocktail). And then we were seated real close the salad bar, which was amazing: a...

We've been here many times in the past and have always been "wowed" by the experience because that is what it should be. This time, we arrived early (they had just opened) and don't know if this was the reason but we were very underwhelmed by the service. The food was great as usual...when they came to our table. Usually... More

I don't eat meat, and Chima specialises in steak, though I love going here anyway. The ambiance outside is great, you can also have a chilled drink at the bar or a more formal dinner in the dining area. They offer good bar food options too.

Of course - you should eat meat. It simply great with a huge variety of Rodizio's. Very professional service. Every time I am in Ft. Lauderdale Chima is a must to visit.
