Ate here this evening and I can honestly say it was the best meal I have had in Lisbon. 16 different cuts of steak and as much sides as you can eat. The meat was a little salty but it was Brazilian style. We had a bottle of Drouro wine and the bill totalled €47. Cannot beat this for value.... More

Went here based on reviews and was not disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff and the food just keeps coming. You can eat all night if you want as the waiters keep bringing more meat round. Also excellent salad bar with great choice. Just go for the cheapest buffet as you still get 16 meat choices.

Restaurants in Lisbon generally fall into one of two classifications-local quinine or " all you can eat" sushi/Asian fusion. Costelao Gaucho is a welcome alternative, offering fairly standard rodizio type meat lovers food in typical surroundings. Its attraction is not that it has exceptionally good food , just that it offers an another option. The meat is good quality and... More

I loved the concept. Buffet with waiters coming around with fresh meat. Great for people who enjoy a meat dish! Will probably visit a few more times while I am here! Paid 15 euros for all I can eat and a water. Great value and taste

Picanha is a Brazilian style popular in Portugal where meat is served from skewers and you can have up to a dozen different things in the course of the meal. Here there were a variety of beef cuts, lamb, sausages, chicken and all very good. My companion ordered a simpler meal as she did not want so much meat, but... More

Dinner on our last night in Lisbon was a winner. My wife and I dined here along with 20+ other customers who half filled the available space. We had never eaten this style before and now we are recruits, no missionaries. The basic meal ( only 16 meats!!) costs about 14 Euros and for that you get a superb salad... More

Brazilian-style meat sliced off in thin strips at your table - as much as you like. Salad bar included (with about 50 items). Went there twice in 4 days, had the grilled salmon once and the beef another time. The beans and rice were also wonderful and they'll give you french fries too if you like. All one set price...
