We went expecting one of the typical churrascaria experiences with the waiters bringing skewers of meat to the table. Apparently they dont do that anymore. It was just an ala carte menu. Food was still decent. Atmosphere was kinda bland. Wont go back

Selected this based on trip advisor ratings. We only speak English so the communication was a little difficult but was worth the effort because the food was great. They did not accept US currency, a first since we have been here

If you appreciate a good steak, here you can find the best Picanha in the city. Ask for the special picanha. Old school restaurant and nice atmosphere give you a taste of Rio.

Last night we went to this restaurant where I had not been in a long time. I know it is a very known restaurant but we had a bad experience! From the beginning the Valet guy told us that our car could only stay in the parking place until 1130 pm. We got there at 930pm. After we sat down... More

Most of tourist likes to go to the traditional rodizio restaurants in Rio such as Porcao and Fogo de Chao. Locals like these restaurants but sometimes prefer a place that offer excellent a la carte churrasco at good prices. Majorica has the best churrasco in Rio. You should try the excellent sausage (the best in Rio), picanha, the local farofa... More

I been three times now and each time the food has been excellent and the servers is outstanding. We order some of the lower price wines but have been disappointed as they were not in stock on two occasions. But have no hesitation in recommending it as a must visit if in Rio...

I went to this old-style churrascaria with my four-year old son, and waited for my father and his companion. While I was there alone with the kid, the waiters seemed very uneasy, walking around me, when I walked toward the "meat window," and asking if I wanted to order anything, even though I had said that I was waiting for...

This is not a restaurant tourists use to go, although it is a Rio's classic. Great food, at a reasonable price. Going there you must eat meat, do not ask for fish or pasta.

This is not a tourist restaurant. This is classic Rio. It is where local families head for an outing on weekends and business goes for a meal during the week. This Churrascaria is old school. It is not rodizio. You select your meat from the expansive selection of cuts (not unlike a butcher shop) which are then cooked on charcoal... More

There was a group of us and we were very excited to try a churrascaria. This one is an a la carte place so from what I've heard it is very traditional and better than the rotating all your can eat ones so I was very excited to try it. We ordered plenty of food and had a few different... More
