Went there each time I am in SP. The concept is amazing with the red/green card to show if you would like or not meat... red "hold on" green "go..." the waiters are sometimes too pushy and when they see it's green they never stop asking you but the quality of food is really good caipirinha as well...

I could enjoy typical Brazilian BBQ here, but not so expensive. I need to pay attention to take so much side dish before filling my stomach with delicious meet. Because there are so many kind of delicious side dishes.

Well worth the price! A variety of delicious meats, prime cuts including picanha, filet mignon, and lamb. Side and salad buffet is also delicious but don't fill up there!

This is a typical Brazilian meat experience but the meat is anything but typical. Always delicious and mouth watering. Be careful, don't fill up on the excellent salad and accompaniments. The meat is the main act.

Great for business meeting, specially with foreigners, has a good selection of salad buffet and good meat. The prices are high and you now have to pay for parking also :-( Make sure you have enough time to enjoy the experience and you are really hungry to make it worth the visit!

Food was phenomenal, with great service. The location (outside of restaurant) isn't the greatest, but the ambiance inside is great. The waiters served after-dinner liqueurs without really disclosing that it was additional, which I think would've been nice.

If you like meat and are visiting São Paulo, this is a must visit! I've travelled to 30+ countries and this restaurant served the best meat I've ever had. Just amazing how meat can taste this great. I think I've never eaten with a big smile on my face throughout the meal. The personell is fantastic. Very service minded and... More

I'm a fan of Fogo, but it is becoming very expensive and not well differentiated in the churrascaria scene. The restaurant was virtually empty on a Tuesday night, which may be impacted by the economic situation in Brazil. All said, the meat was generally good and the creme de papaia was also tasty. The flank steak was very fatty.

What a delight!! I'm currently in Brazil on an assignment. The team decided to get together and pay this restaurant a visit. We were not disappointed. The level of customer service tops any place thus far that I've visited. Great service and great food!!
