Lovely resturant with a big buffet area for you to get salads, breads, rices, sushi, pre cooked dishes before the meat comes round. The meat came with various different cuts of beef it seemed to come all at once but you just have to say no and pace yourself. Also chicken sausages and garlic Bread come on the skewers. The...

Please fast for a day before going to this restaurant! Oh my I have never seen or eaten so much meat one sitting in my life. EVERYTHING we ate was amazing. The pork is especially good. You do have to eventually be firm with the waiters to stop bringing food. The salad and sides bar are incredible as well.

We received the recommendation from our hosts to go to Tourao for my daughter's 18th birthday, and we were so thrilled that we did. As we entered we were sat toward the back, and I highly recommend trying to sit there as it is closest to the kitchen (in this scenario it is a benefit). The maître d' explained how... More

Starting off with the salad buffet and some drinks. After that the meat fun starts. Many waiters walking around with meat. Better check first, as otherwise you miss the nice meat and you are full too early Prices ok, waiters could be friendlier.

Definitely not the best "rodízio" in Barra. The atmosphere is also not inviting and I would not return there.

The restaurant is a typical rodizio style (all you can eat) steak house with above average quality meats. I went with friends after a day at Barra da Tijuca beach, and the food, atmosphere and service were all above average. The waiters kept coming with more and more meat and side dishes to offer until we surrendered. I recommend the... More

Traditional Brazilian cooking of variety of grilled meats are the main courses, and there is a very rich self-served buffet. Food was excellent and service was fast and good.We enjoyed very much this meal.

Loved this churrascaria. Fixed price to eat as much as you want from the extensive salad buffet and hot accompaniments, plus the various cuts of meat. We had the best Uruguayan beef ever. Don't miss it. Service is also great at a very decent price.
