Description: The Carretão is much more than a steak house. Located in Ipanema, it is a reference in barbeque carvery and gastronomy, which combines quality, variety and service. The carefully selected ingredients are the raw material of Carretão's success. The irresistible menu gathers meats of all kinds, hot food, salads, antipasti and buffet of Japanese food. In addition, the staff of gourmets, maitres and waiters is always ready to offer you the best service. This makes our personalized service a unique differential. It is no wonder that those who go to the Carretão are always smiling.

We ate here after a recommendation from a friend. We were so pleased with our reception. The service was good, as much food as you can eat, and the quality of food was exceptional. Very pleased and would strongly recommend whilst in ipanema.

This is a classic Brazilian rodizzio with huge salad bar (with entrees as well) where they bring around huge slabs of meat to your table every few minutes. For the fixed price of about $30 (USD) you get all you can eat. But don't be misled by the seeming bargain price, because desserts are a big extra ($12 or so) and drinks add a lot too. Dinner with 2 desserts and 2 beers and iced tea cost us about $120.

OMG. Cancel your medical appointments for at least a couple of weeks after this visit. Absolutely fabulous meats served at your table in the classic rodizio/churasco style. Salads and pre-entree items extensive and delicious. Great wine list. Busy and bustling on a Saturday, but never overwhelming. Special visit to the kitchen was provided when I asked how they did their magic! Just go there. Reservations and/or early arrival recommended on weekends.

If you want to go to a brazilian rodizzio, and spend a little extra money, but not crazy prices, you sould go there.
This place is in Ipanema, and its a nice area.
The place is not very fancy but service is good and place is nice and clean and everything.
Its abut 85-100 reais per person plus drinks (about 8 reais each soda).
The meat is good, not the best though.
The salda bar is quite good, and excellent sushi!

We have been at this property at the beginning of March 2017 with a group of tourists. The high quality of the Brasilian BBQ is well known, however, in this place most of the meat is served well done, dry and testeless. The buffet is acceptable, the dish with theal tail very good
