This very elegant restaurant has great meet options. Like the meet, the side dishes are very tasty. Very nice place for the ones with a little more to spend.

If you have been to brazilian steakhouse, you will find this one a little bit different from the others. There is not waiters with the meat to cut at your table, but the steaks are very good. I suggest the "pastel" as appetizer, then one of the fabulous steaks. They have a palm cabbage that is very well known. Try... More

Prior to moving to Brazil I was in the disbelief that the best meat in the world was Argentinian. Initially, I was based in São Paulo which enabled me to try many churrascarias. When moving to Rio I quickly came across Royal Grill located in Casa Shopping in Barra da Tijuca. Here the waiters truly earn their tip as they... More

I have been coming here every 2-3 years on my visits to Rio. Many other restaurants come, others fade. But Royal Grill has maintained the same excellent food quality. The Argentine picana remains my favourite steak in Rio and the sides are without equal - the wonderful Brie pastels, the crazy rice, the corn creme.... Not many gringos know this... More

My Brazilian colleagues took me here for dinner. I admit I put myself in their hands when ordering but the result was excellent. This is a deceptively large restaurant with a number of little rooms that make up the dining area. The place was not busy when we were there and so there were lots of staff to go around.... More

The atmosphere makes you feel comfortable, since the doorman Luis till the maitre Freire. Here you can experience a really nice meat. This is the place of my sunday lunch. I recommend enthusiastically the grilled sausages as an entrée. Couvert is nice with some fresh vegetables and pão de queijo(traditional bread made of cheese). For the main course, do not... More

Despite the good location, parking lot, and no queue to get in, the menu is poor and with not so much choices. Very expensive by what they offer.

Royal Grill is a different Brazilian barbecue. Instead of the famous "rodizio" that is all you can eat, here you ask the peace of meat that would like to eat, and then the waiter prepare it just for you. Dont miss the arroz maluco, rice with eggs, onions, bacon that is prepared in front of you. Palm pupunha also made... More

Ive visited Royal Grill a number of times over the years and the good news is that its still marvellous - the argentinean picana is still amongst the best in Rio (surely?!), the brie pastel are delicious and the crazy rice a tasty accompaniment... The downside is its pricey - a meal fir two cost the equivalent of 130 gbp...... More
