A lovely evening but although it truly is wonderful for meat lovers, there is fish and alternatives at the salad bar. The meat is beautifully cooked and extremely tasty with that barbecue tang. You can easily overdo it but with so many types of beef...More

For those of you who don't know what a Brazilian Churrascaria is, InterContinental Abu Dhabi invites you to experience Chamas Churrascaria & Bar. Think endless skewers of freshly barbecued meat and chicken served by enthusiastic and knowledgeable Passadores until you tell them to stop. Add to this a South American music performed by "Los Hidalgos", and you've got one of the liveliest atmospheres in the city. Located above Chamas restaurant is Chamas bar famed for its Caipirinha creations, bustling ladies nights and juicy meat platters.
