I ended up there without knowing what a "churrascaria" was. But my, was there meat to eat. The buffet itself is great, and the cashew juice is wonderful. I just kept taking photos of the meat as they came by! Wow, wow, and wow again!

Bastos GOLD is the best churrascaria in João Pessoa (as opposed to Sal e Brasa, which is HORRIBLE). It cost about R$75,00, but I did not drink any alcohol, just a couple of juices (caju, and caja).

Although located in a nice beach front site in Tambau, the quality of food in general is low. The meats are mainly served overcooked, not tender and when finally seved a mid to raw piece of beef it becomes obvious it is not fresh enough to be served as so. Even the sea food buffet is disappointing: all available choices... More

This restaurant is quite new and located right on the seafront in Tambau with a big car park. The service is excellent and the meat the best I have found in town. Prices are reasonable.
