Good diversity in meats, but not so in buffet. Good sauce but not salty enough. Good price but not so in service. Avoid going on weekends after 8PM cause waiting will take U some time.

This restaurant is located very close to our hotel so we tried it out. It was 28 Raei per person and well worth it. The food was good and there was a very good variety!

The food was plentiful but quite average. Service was mediocre. Acceptable for a meal if you are hungry and short on time.

After nearly a fortnight of Brazilian meals, in which veg does not feature heavily on a plate, we went absolutely mental on the salad and veg buffet. There were plenty of other buffet items too - various types of potato, rice, fried cheesy things. Then the staff (who were all very friendly and accommodating) started turning up at the table...

So I probably would have given this a 4, however, you need to compare it against something similar in the same place (Buffalo Branco) - and therefore it gets a 5. We went here on our first night here (Friday). It was busy, with a mixture of locals and tourists. The food was plentiful, tasty and there was a lot... More

Nice buffet, but were are the feijao, plantains and othe deliciuos meals and fruits from Brasil?? This Churrasquerias are transforming the rich brazilian cuisine into a mere parrilla. Still, a good place though. Expensive caipirignhas but get used to touristic places that attract people for the price of the buffet and charge you with expensive drinks.
