The restaurant was right outside the lobby of the Spiwak Hotel. My guests and I were looking for a place to eat and chose Rodizio because of its convenience. I have eaten at Brazilian Restaurants like this many times in the U.S. so I was not expecting anything different. I will say I was very pleasantly surprised! The service was truly outstanding: not overwhelming but expeditious enough that all our needs were met without feeling smothered. The sides were served family style and all of them were flavorful. This is a restaurant that obviously emphasizes meat, and meat there was. In typical fashion it was served on skewers many different cuts and all were cooked to our liking, and all were flavorful. The staff as stated were outstanding: friendly, and pleasant. All with a smile and willing to satisfy out needs. We all left with full stomachs especially the children. The price was shocking, almost half what we would pay in the U.S. I have no complaints and will go back when I am in this city again. I highly recommend it.

I had saved up some money to eat here. I'm used to spending $2 for most meals here in Colombia, and not $20 (plus tip). Needless to say, I had very high expectations.

The restaurant is inside a huge hotel, which is connected to the mall (convenient for an after-rodizio stroll to burn some calories).

I've eaten at many rodizio places in Brazil, and wanted to compare. Like other rodizios, we could eat an unlimited amount of the meats and the side dishes here.

Some of the comments on tripadvisor warned of the "slow service". But when I went yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised -- the waiter came over to our table every three minutes to check up on us and bring meats and side dishes. It's a small and cozy restaurant, and there were maybe 10 other guests. Regardless, the service was excellent, and the staff helped take some photos and we had some good laughs with them.

They gave us so much food. We were so full by the 8th or 9th meat, but ate all 12 because they were too delicious to say no to. Each of the 12 meats were amazing, and the guy gave us very generous slices for each.

The side dishes were pretty good too, especially the pineapple salad. They didn't have the variety of side dishes like in the huge rodizios in Brazil, but 10 sides was a good amount.

The quality of the meats were on par with the rodizios in Brazil. The service was excellent.

At the entrance of the Spiwak Hotel at the Chipichape shopping center in the north of Cali you will a classy Rodizio and steak restaurant. The Rodizio at 38,00 pesos(about $20) consists of a multi order of ten salad and side items served to your table along with 12 different cuts of Brazilian inspired meats. The service is great and the atmosphere intimate with a parcial view of the mountains above Chipichape. You may first want to stroll through the lobby of the Spiwak Hotel and have a glass of wine in their cocktail lounge. If you prefer they also have two large steaks (350 grams) on the menu instead of the Rodizio for 27,00 pesos(about $14).
