We had a wonderful time sampling meats cooked and grilled/roasted in various styles with over 45 African animal health delegates from Africa. It was an opportunity to discuss and clarify about neglected or invisible working animals

Fogo Gaucho is conveniently ;located in Westlands - the convenience comes from the fact that its off the highway and has lots of parking inside and outside - a growing rarity in Nairobi. REally great cuts of meat and i LOVE the salad bar. The atmosphere is lively but WARM - and thats a special combination.

We had an awesome time as a class. The services were great and the best part was that the meat kept on coming and coming. If you are looking to enjoy a relaxed evening with friends and family I would highly recommend Fogo Gaucho

This is a dream come true for carnivores who love meat. Most of the meat on offer in Nairobi is organic and hence tasty. Fogo Gaucho goes beyond the tasty food and offers really well barbecued cuts of pork, beef, chicken, fish and even crocodile on its menu. It is an all you can eat concept and the food is... More

Came here for a business dinner. First time to a Brazilian steak house, and I was impressed. The meat selection and preparation was quite good. They offer you a trip to the 'salad bar' which has a good selection of salads and side dishes. Don't be tempted to take too much here, you'll not save enough room for the meat.... More
