The Gauchos started bringing the meat skewers and our tab,e was served rice, beans, fries, plantains,and jicama. Everything was very good. We tried a... More

I have been here at least 10 times but have not written a review. I don't live close, but fly out of Newark Airport regularly, and this is just 10 minutes away, great for a meal before or after travel. You might be afraid of Newark, but this restaurant is in the Ironbound district of the city, and seems a... More

Group of friends went out to celebrate. While the price was good for the rodizio the quality was average. Today my stomach is telling me a not so pretty picture also. Also get there early because tables fill up and people don't leave. Parking lot is small and parking in the area is limited.

This is a great place to go if you want to have good Rodizio (Unlimited Brazilian BBQ). Pluses: Good Food Friendly Staff Valet Parking Negatives: --Pricey (Rodizio is in the $45 range/person) --Very small Tips: --Be sure to make a reservation --Get the Rodizio! --Come with an appetite and loose pants.

Great food, nice decorum and reasonable prices. I visited this restaurant with my wife and we tried several appetizers and wine. Had an octopus salad that was of the hook. The "Ensalada de Pulpo." as we call it back home was served in big chunks and it was very tender. In addition, the stuffed mushrooms with crab meat were delicious... More
