I seem to agree with all the terrible reviews here. 1 litre juice instead of a glass. After looking at the menu and the terrible buffet with just one item of octopus and rice I decided to not order food as there were hardly any customers. This restaurant has nothing to do with Brazilian cuisine. The crooks there tried to... More

This is a meat lovers haven. The music inside was too loud so opted to sit out in the open air. Was nice and cool. They had some excellent choices of meats. The top side sirloin was THE BEST. The only downside was the service. Apparently our group just loved the sirloin so it took them way too long to... More

I gotta tell you . If you're a carnivore like I am and are craving different sizzling barbecue flavors, don't skip this place next time you visit Dar. I was invited on an informal meeting with an old school mate of mine who wanted to introduce me to his other business partners. Enjoyed the different flavored steaks from rump steak,... More

Typical Dar staff- Useless with a capital U. Had no clue of anything. Maybe it was too local. Anything we asked for they looked clueless and the first drink and food item we ordered from menus they didn't even have. Didn't look like anyone was eating and but I did someone come over with a tray of food (not cut... More

We went here last night with some friends for a special occasion. Firstly I thought it was still closed. The wait staff are excellent at making you wait. There was 1 person in the venue and the entertainer was singing to himself. The drinks - what can I say? The gents beers were warm - I ordered mango juice and... More

This is very similar to a rodízio in Brazil, but it has one serious drawback to my way of thinking: they don't serve pork. You'll get various cuts of beef, even tongue, shrimp, fish, chicken, sausage, but no pork or game. The meat is expertly grilled, and the salad and sides are good, but for the prices they charge (way... More

The meat was plentiful, although it got a bit dull after a while because not only were there not many varieties, there was basically one taste note for all the different cuts barring the chicken. In some cases, the best cuts were so seriously overseasoned that it made enjoying them very difficult. There is little on offer for those who... More
