This is an amazing churrascaria (BBQ-Grill). The meats were cooked to perfection! Slightly charred on the outside, juicy medium-rare on the inside with a delicious smokey flavour and seasoned superbly. This is one meal we'll always remember. Service and friendliness from the staff was unparalleled, the overall food selection was good & the facilities sparkling clean. We had a great... More

Matuto is one of the famous Brazilian "churrascarias" de 'Rodizio', meaning meat on a spit that they bring to the table in a never ending circuit. Matuto is substandard in quality and has a terrible salad bar. You are better off going to Trevisan if you are looking for a good churrascaria.

Very traditional BBQ all you can eat churrascaria at a very reasonable cost. But I found it incredibly average. And in Campinas there are too many churrascarias. So why O Matuto? And perhaps my biggest problem is my favorite cut/steak is not available here (Rib eye or Ancho in Portuguese). How is it possible for a place like this not... More

I have been in this friendly restaurant that is located in Campinas / SP (Taquaral neighborhood). Excellent service from the entrance. Cleaning too strong point. Good value for money. It has valet parking when you arrive and easy. Good but more importantly let's talk about BBQ. I recommend titty and sirloin. Were on point. For those who do not like... More

My friend and I had a delicious barbecue and a shot of cachaca! Excellent service and not too expensive, all in all a great experience both for dinner and lunch.

This place has a fair value, good rodizio with salad bar. Kid's place is more than enough.

I and my colleagues were disappointed with the quality of the meat ( the cooked point of the grilled ) and we concluded that it was because the day of week we visited this barbecue ( Monday ). I won't back there to test the meat again.
