The price is now 115 reais for the rodizio, and it is well worth it. My reason to make a new evaluation of this establishment is simply to verify that the excellence is still a matter of highest standard.

At around 150 pp without drinks this is not a cheap place. BUT. Super awesome buffet. Excellent meat that just keeps coming and coming and coming and coming.... Until you turn that coin to red! No really, the meat is amazing. If you are into all-you-can-eat Rodizio, go to Boi Preto.

The steak as expected is very good. Tender and plentiful. The salad and sushi bar are also very good. My one small issue is all the meat seemed to be cooked medium or more. Rare meat was difficult to get but the restaurant tried to satisfy. Overall I would recommend this restaurant in Salvador.

Don't eat for 2 days before you go. You won't be able to eat for 2 days after. The quantity is absolutely obscene. The quality is excellent, but some things are better than others. The selection is mind-boggling. Service is excellent. Don't fill up on the appetizer/salad/sushi/hot food bar or you won't be able to appreciate the non-stop grilled offerings.... More

The best place for "churrasco - barbecue" in the city of Salvador. The meat is good, the food is very good, the service is helpful and kind, they are slow, but it is good. I recommend.

This was my first time to Brasil and my fiancee was my tour guide. She told me this is THE best place for barbecue in Salvador and she was not joking. I have never experienced anything like this before and it was amazing. I am not used to such elegant service, so felt a little awkward; but the staff was... More

We have spent some time in Mato Grosso do Sul some years ago and a lot of the Brazilian beaf comes from there, we naturally ate a lot of churrasco back then. Of course Salvador is not Mato Grosso do Sul, but there are some rules that even there should aply: NEVER EVER PUT TOO MUCH SALT ON THE BEEF!... More

On Valentin's day I an my colleagues (group of 16 people) went in this Restaurant for a lunch.Great selection of different high quality grilled meat and sausages, big buffet with marinated vegetables and sushi, great choice of desserts and drinks. Very good service! The best memory and surely I would love to visit them again.
