An absolute delightful Brazilian steak house experience.. great ambience great staff and good food make your visit memorable. The starting buffet for salad and rice and trans and some soups was amazing with huge selection to choose from. Lettuce and other vegetables were crisp and fresh - something which is critical for me in any salad bar. Delighted by freshness.... More

You have visit this restaurant If you are steak gourman and you are in Sao Paolo. We had great dinner with very nice Argentinian Malbec in very nice Brazilian atmosphere.

Great option for the famous Brazilian "rodízio". Actually the best house in town for that. Just avoid getting lured by the fantastic salad buffet and not tasting all the different cuttings

It was supposed to be the real thing, A Rodizio in the heart of Brazil, but I've had better selection of Brazilian beef in other parts of the world! The salad bar was "interesting" but the variety of food that was brought to our table was... disappointingly with few options. The night that we visited was particularly noisy. It was... More

I had to travel to SP for work and had the opportunity to eat at Fogo with a customer. I've eaten at the Fogo de Chao restaurants in other cities/countries and the quality is always (at least in my experience) excellent. If you love meat and enjoy trying different types of cuts and types of meats then this is a... More

This is a good restaurant and you will get good food and a nice ambiance, but in a city like SP with tens of better choices I recommend doing your research and keeping this as plan B.

A significantly down scaled Fogo. DON'T waste your money, you'll be disappointed. The food was good, but the salad bar was barely worth visiting.

Classic Brazilian dinner of meat, meat, meat. Very large restaurant that was full by 9pm. Excellent service from start to finish. Fantastic choice of wine to suit all tastes and pockets. The salad bar is extensive and well presented. The choice of meat is excellent I doubt anybody leaves here without eating too much
