Pleasant environment with friendly staff. Food was really good with a bit of a show as guys would turn up with sticks and cut the meat in front of you. At the end we were all completely full and couldn't get to the dessert phase. Nice buffet as well with plenty of food on display. Overall good experience and I... More

Ate here on a weekday lunchtime and it was packed with local business people, which means it must be good if it's full of local people. The steak was perfectly cooked, there was a constant supply of meat. There were loads of various salads and sides too, all fresh. There were hot trays too with meat stews, rice, beans and... More

Please note that this place is now a Fogo de Chao. If you are familiiar with F de C in the US, please also note that this is a more down scale restaurant concept than in the US. This has plusses and minuses. First, it is roughly half the price of the US branches and drinks are cheaper. Second, the... More

People go to a Rodizio restaurant for the meat and we loved most of the offerings. Our surprise favorite, though, was the grilled pineapple. The salad bar was also very good with a variety of interesting and delicious foods. A shout-out to Petra who was very helpful and friendly and good at orienting us English speakers.

We went after reading recommendations here on Trip Advisor and were absolutely not disappointed. It's true that they save the 'better' cuts of meat (sirlion, top side) to the end, but as it's all you can eat this is not a problem whatsoever, plus all of the other meat is fantastic anyway! Do not bother eating the bread or rice... More
