“Take extra water”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Good quality meat, and nice options for vegetables and side dishes. But one thing you can only taste: the salt. Way too salty!!! If you don't mind that, then you can enjoy some life brazilian music (chilled music, not crazy samba), a lot of food and a friendly atmosphere. When we got full, they brought as a super yummy pineapple cooked in the bbq with cinnamon. Very nice!

“Just so so”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

A lot of food(mostly meat) so go there only if you are hungry. The food was ok but a way too salty for me. Would go again if i know that they dont use that much salt on their meat ;)

“Meat feast. Just go there hungry!”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

This place is just around the corner from me but had never been in there until last night. Went on a Groupon voucher to try the place out. Was great value with this at €69 for four people including a Caipirinha each which was made fresh at our table. Very nice. My friend’s father in law from Sao Paulo was with us and he enjoyed the food.
I have never been to a Brazilian place before but really enjoyed this restaurant. There is a selection of salads and warm buffet at the far end and once you have started eating the waiters come along with various huge skewers of meat which has been roasted on the barbeque out back and they carve slices off and on to your plate. The meat was delicious, you could really taste the smokey flavours. The meat was well seasoned on the outside with a lovely salty crust.
You really need to go there with an appetite though. The food keeps coming all night until you beg them to stop. It’s a real meat feast. The Brazilian Skol beer they have there in cans is really nice and light, try it out.
Staff were really friendly also and there was a live guitar player, I guess because it was a Saturday night. All in all I would definitely go back here.

“Samba in the Samba Kitchen”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Arriving at this Churrascaria the atmosphere was awesome. 4 of us were sat at a table next to the musician playing beautiful guitar and singing. Caipirinha's made at our table was also a great touch and they tasted amazing.
Waiting staff were friendly and good fun.
Unfortunately, having eaten at a few of these Brazilian restaurants I thought the meat was average. A lot came incredibly quickly and then stopped coming at all. What did make it to the table was pretty dry. I loved the hot buffet options, but at 28 Euros per person, it wasn't good value for rice and salad.
A friend of ours eats here regularly and says it is usually much better food, and based on the service I wouldn't rule out a return.
