Very good Brazilian steak house or churrascaria as we call. The best part is the charisma of the owner Steave and his wife Young (I think that's the way it's written). Staff are very attentive and the food is very good.

The churrasco (Brazilian barbecue) is a traditional feast that has been celebrated in Brazil for centuries. It is a unique and healthy way of roasting meat over a mesquite flame that preserves tenderness and gives it a taste unmatched by any other. Guests of Rei do Gado will encounter an unlimited buffet of typical dishes and salads.
