This restaurant, a braseiro, is by its name, specialized on barbecued meat. It's not very touristic since is in Gavea maybe out of touristic routes but is the best place to dine in Rio. Don't expect a fancy elegant restaurant: is traditional, popular and old...More

This place is full of locals and the place is very Brazilian, no one spoke English, but we managed to get some orders down and the food was great, not cheap prices but it was worth it.

We went there after visiting jardim botanical gardens based on the reviews. The food was far from what others described. It was very average and many places had better pikanha. None of the waitress spoke English and it was very difficult to communicate.
