If you are afraid about quality or price, don't worry. Have the same dishes as all the world. Maybe the price is a little expensive, but in Brazil the prices increased in last months...

Outback Steakhouse provides decent (but definitely not "light" nor healthy) food and hefty portions, albeit at very high prices. Plus, it takes tons of patience to get a table. My personal favorite is the lamb rack with cabernet sauvignon dressing. The onion and potato soups are very tasty, and reasonably priced. However, on average, Outback's prices are somewhat out of...

If you are here in Rio make sure you stop by for the cold beer and great service, you can't go wrong my stopping at the Outback, I... More

The best place to go to eat ribs. Our blooming onion was a bit too spice for our taste but the waitress said we can ask for a plain one made with white flour next time. The service was great! There was a lady with her son at a table beside us and she wasn't happy with her picanha and... More

This is my teenager daughter´s favourite restaurant. The service is very good and so is the food. The drinks are also very nice. The price is a little high but it´s always worth it. I recommend Outback Steakhouse specially for dinner time.

Australian style, Outback offers not only excellent service but also various options of meat, with several options of dressings. The desserts are very good. Every branch in Rio there is always a line. You wait no longer than 15 minutes as they do not accept bookings. First come first seat.

While in RIO for 12 days of the Paralympics, we enjoyed many south American dishes, but we were really missing "steak and potatoes"! We took a taxi to this great restaurant! It was just like being at home! Even had an English speaking waitor! Good steaks, great margaritas, good times!

My boyfriend and I ordered two plates and both were really salty. I ordered a pasta that was full of chilli and black pepper. The waiter didn't ask me if I like chilli at all and the menu didn't describe the plate with chilli. Everything was really expensive for the offer. For tourists that never heard about, Outback is a... More
