For long time, My Family and I attend this restaurant. But, in last 2 times, We verify the quality decrease. Yesterday, August 14th, I went with my son to celebrate Father's Day, and it was very frustrating. I needed almost to beg for the waiters to serve us, and the food quality is worst than ever! To complete, after few... More

No surprises, just the traditional buffet and several cuts of meat. Side dishes always hot and tasty.

Wonderful and exotic salads. Great meat, barbequed and sliced in front of you. Wide variety of meat available. Delicious desserts and drinks.

Me and dine friends on a stag party were recommended to come here by a local and it was a total knockout. The meats were of a quality cut and flavour and we certainly enjoyed ourselves! The salad bar too was amazing, with the palmito and salmon particularly appealing. Service also was frequent and spritely. The only slight negative was... More

So Brasil is known for it's Churrascarias and there're quite a few around but in my opinion, the meat here is some of the best you'll find anywhere - Porcao, Fogo de Chao doesn't have better. The only drawback is that the salad bar is minimal but I go there for the meat. The picanha is always superb and the... More

We went here twice while in Rio. We had the pleasure of watching two Brazil games during the world cup at Estrela do Sul. Great atmosphere when everyone is there for the same purpose. There were enough tv screens for everyone to have a good view of the game. Easily walking distance from the stadium. Staff are very good, they... More

I`ve been to Estrela do Sul Steak House in a business lunch and I must say that it`s a place to be revisited plenty of times. The meat cuts are excellents, the salad buffet is awesome, dessert car full of options, pretty nice service, beautifull environment, the only negative point is that it is too noisy, specially at lunch time,...

I have been coming to Estrela do Sul for many years, and the service and food have always been excellent. They bring the meats as you wish, rare, medium etc. It is a local gem and not to be missed after a game at Maracana.

If you are looking for a typical Brazilian BBQ, this is the place. The hot and cold salad choices are excellent, more than enough appetizers brought to the table and then along comes the meat, poultry, etc. the chicken is moist, steak very good and the lamb excellent. The dessert cart is an eye-opener, Flan delish.

Thank Ssks
