I know that I'm suspicious of giving my opinion about this restaurant. I've been used to go to most of all barbecue shops in my country. I'm almost with all of them. I haven't seen nothing comparable to this place so far. The food, the attendants and the eating experience is out of the charts. For real! I was used... More

Good churrascaria, but was nearly $R 200 for one person, with drinks and dessert, which seems a bit high for the meal.

Brazilian Churrascaria excellent from beginning to end. Just flip the disk from red to green and the assault begins. They don't hold back on the service or food. They speak adequate English which helps with ordering. Highly recommended!

From the outstanding service to the delicious meats and buffet options, we were extremely happy with our experience at Rio Brasa. The next time we visit Rio we will be sure to stop... More

We came here for a team lunch on a recommendation and had a wonderful experience. The service was great. The buffet was huge and delicious. The meat selections never ending and mouth wateringly good.

The selection was very good and the food was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The meats were done to perfection and the variety allowed something for everyone. Lots of seafoods - the only thing missing was rice and black beans.

I've never been to a churrasco with such a wide range of meats and side dishes available. Was great to have carts also being wheeled around with offerings too.
