This was our second visit to Chima. A fun time for a large group, we had eight people. Staff is very attentive, food is amazing! I suggest eating light all day to save up for dinner!

We've been here many times in the past and have always been "wowed" by the experience because that is what it should be. This time, we arrived early (they had just opened) and don't know if this was the reason but we were very underwhelmed...More

I don't eat meat, and Chima specialises in steak, though I love going here anyway. The ambiance outside is great, you can also have a chilled drink at the bar or a more formal dinner in the dining area. They offer good bar food options...More

Of course - you should eat meat. It simply great with a huge variety of Rodizio's. Very professional service. Every time I am in Ft. Lauderdale Chima is a must to visit.

Figure $60 a person for the buffet. The mixed bar drinks run around $10-$12 on average. For a couple, you are looking at about $20 more than if you went to Texas DE Brazil and about $40 more than if you went to The Knife... More
