I regret not having visited this restaurant sooner! I was told that the restaurant is under new management now, so I can’t comment on how it used to be, but I can say that this place is great! I ate lunch here last week and the service was impeccable. They serve a variety of meats prepared in different ways. In... More

Foreigners are Always amazed at the amount of food, meat and personel in such places, so it's not a bad idea to go there if you are one and won't notice the standards we Brazilians are used to. The place seems small and packed at first but there are other halls to be used if needed; some are reserved enough... More

A group of us attending a conference in Joao Pessoa located this restaurant through Trip Advisor. We arrived 8.45 p.m. on a weekday, place was packed with locals, after a 20 minute wait we were seated. The ambience is very good, service good despite the large crowd. You start with the salad bar and sushi bar, then the classical meat... More

The service is good, with good meat and a reasonable saladbuffet. Good pricing as well. Just a bit far from Tambau and Cabo Branco.

The food was simply awful for the price, and the wait staff not any better. The meat was dry and fatty, mostly tasteless, and the other dishes were cafeteria quality. I have eaten at two other Sal e Brasa locations in Natal, RN (May, 2009), and Fortaleza (May, 2015). The location in Natal had ok quality food, and an excellent... More

It has the most excellent concept ( rodizio all you can eat + buffet ), and they often announce good prices, but the food was not good - especially the meat. Service nice though.

The food is always excellent as is the service. The selection from the salad bar and buffet in addition to the never ending round of different meats being offered makes this one of the best dining experiences EVER. Cocktails, desserts, coffee, attentive staff - Perfect......
