Probably the worst meal I had in the past year, and definitely the worst picanha I had in my whole life. The meat wasn't actually picanha and it was dry and tasteless... the farofa was greasy and tasted poorly, at least the fries were crisp

This is a very nice place for lunch just a step away from the hotel / conference. Ate there 3 lunches and certainly the grilled fish to share is my favourite. Grilled chicken is good but not as the grilled fish. Mixed salad is great....More

I went with a friend, and ordered a risotto, which the menu said served two. We felt it would serve at least five. Go with many friends to share, or be prepared to bring another meal home.

Although my husband was happy with his appropriately cooked medium - rare steak, the salmon was so dry I had trouble swallowing it. Sauce wasn't much better with capers and defrosted frozen shrimp swimming in olive oil. Overall, not impressed.

Good variety of Meats! Dessert was amazing. Must try !! They have menu in English also that helps foreigners to understand the food better and order accordingly.

A great restaurant for casual business or family. Huge portions! Overall really good value. I would recommend this restaurant. You can get an amazing taste of Brazil here.

Nice enough place. The Picanha steak was just OK, but the steak in Roquefort was better. They pretty much give you two full steaks for each individual order, so a couple would be best to share an appetizer and a main rather than ordering two...More
