There is a menu - all you can eat for approx. 30€, very tasty, the salad in form of a buffet as well as deserts are included. You are brought different kinds of meat and taste from all the sots a bit, the staff is always bringing it to you one after another and cut a piece as big as you like, they are coming very quickly so that you do not manage to eat the served one. Cards are accepted.

Went as part of a large group
It was busy for midweek however trade fair on as well so everywhere was busy.
The starters were okay, don't eat too much as there is is plenty of meat to come in the main course.
On to the mains this is meat served straight off a large sword and interspersed with a few rice, beans etc. They did serve some pineapple as well. If you wanted more or less well cooked they were happy to oblige.
We has sausages,chicken, ham, pork, beef and it just kept coming until we had all had too much!
A good experience

They are absolutely targeting groups and men. When I was there I only saw one single couple that was kinda lost in the group thing that was going on around them. Strangely enough over 90% of the guests are male. It's the kind of restaurant that feels it needs to entertain people to distract you from the average food quality. For the appetisers there is a buffet that you have to wait in line for. A not to spectacular display of supposedly Brazilian dishes that I also can find in many Mediterranean countries. The main course is 'served' or rather 'thrown on your plate' by shouting waiters (cause of the noise all guests make) and some guys running around with meat on a sword. Most meat is rather dull tasting with an exception of some parts of the beef they cut for you. Again you must be lucky to get the right piece or you end up with a dry piece of beef with only fat. All in all overpriced for what you get.
During the evening on three or four occasions the dancers show up to 'entertain the guests' with even more noise. I prefer not to be entertained en enjoy good food and conversation.

The food was ok. We were the first table where they always started with a fresh skewer of meat so we always got the outer, overcooked slices. I never felt like I got a slice that was cooked medium or medium rare. The salad bar was anemic.The entertainment was interesting. My friends got pulled up to the front to dance with the dancer. That was pretty entertaining.

Very poor service, far too hectic- they want u in and out asap...meat quality poor and tasted the same, dessert choice was the worst I have ever seen. All of that and the bill wasn't cheap...!
