I was here for business diner, we got the bufette, so salads are very good, service is nice and they try to do their best, they are prompt in service, but the meat is maybe not as good as you should expect; drinks are very nice I mean I liked; but If you are a regular foreigner from USA than...

We have been at a Rodizio's before and enjoyed the food so decided to give this place a try. The restaurant is lovely and the buffet is very nice. The meat was tasty and the service was good. I felt this place was a little pricey. If you are a big meat eater (I am not) then you would love... More

We have been here multiple times and we look forward to going back whenever we are in San Jose. We usually go back to the hotel right after because we are so full we just want to relax after.

Not great, but good. Food quality was average for high end Brazilian Churrascaria. Service was good as well, just nothing exceptional with our experience.

I'd eaten in a Brazilian churrascaria steakhouse (Fogo de Chao in Scottsdale, AZ) and I am a carnivore, so when a friend suggested Fogo Brazil it was on. Understanding that Costa Rican beef is 'marginal' at best I was not expecting much. The location is, as one reviewer noted, right off an unglamourous side street in La Sabana (next to... More

We ate here due to its proximity to the Crowne Plaza hotel. The food is good, an extensive buffet as you would expect from this style of Brazilian churascaria. The wine selection is reasonable but the food is quite pricey even by San Jose standards. The location is not particularly beautiful, its on the side of a busy road near... More

It's ok if you want to keep it simple and don't want to complicate yourself with ordering from the menu. It's expensive even if you go as a group. Meat is average, picanha not the best. Salad bar is basic, lots of options but not that tasty. Service good and good caipirinhas.

We opted to eat at Fogo Brasil as it was very close to our hotel (we could see it from our room!) and enjoyed a very pleasant meal there. The staff were keen to help us with advice on the menu and local drinks, and we had plenty of choice with food options. We both (strangely) went for pork dishes... More
