You must try the Churrasco. It is a filet cut in half and seasoned. Very different from a typical steak. Pretty pricey. It is all worth it to get to desert. Tres Laches. Best ever.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but we went here for my birthday and don't plan to return. We found it overpriced and the food was much too salty. The ceviche was fine, the flan was ok and we always love the...More

Great food and wonderful service. Tough to beat! It was my first time there so I was expecting to it be OK but they outdid themselves in every fashion. It also helped that they had my favorite wine on the menu.

Everything we ordered was so dull of flavor. The plantain chips and salsa were out of this world! Soup was delicious and our entrees were fresh. The best part was the homemade coconut ice cream. We will be back!!

I normally do not like tres leches, but here I could be my entire meal. I will never try it anywhere else - this is the only and only tres leches.

Loved Churrascos. Great service, great dishes, great flavors. My kids enjoyed trying some new things, which made it a special visit. We all ended up with different types of steak and everyone loved what they ordered. The plantain chips were a real treat. It was...More

Had high expectations and had heard good things about Churrascos but came away disappointed. Two people had to send crab claws back because they were cold I ordered the special steak. Seasoning was a bit over done and made it hard to tell quality of...More

I believe you are mistaken about what restaurant you want to inquire about. This Churrascos is in the middle of Houston and does not have a sunset cruise. In fact, I've never heard of a sunset cruise associated with... More
