We ate here on Sunday night, having been unable to get a table on Saturday. We have eaten at other Rodizios in the UK and Spain but this was a little different in that they didn't have the usual buffet of salads and side dishes but then I guess they don't really have enough room. Instead they give you a few 'tapas' (well, pinchos really) and garlic bread which were okay but nothing to write home about. You have a choice of fries or baked potato and they bring a really great bowl of salad. Then, the servers come frequently with a good selection of meat and fish and carve off a portion of whatever you fancy. It was all cooked beautifully and well seasoned.

The service was friendly, although a little slow to take our initial order and subsequent drinks orders. Most annoyingly, it took 10 minutes to catch someone's eye to ask for the bill and then another 20 minutes before they came back with the card machine to take payment - despite me asking 3 times! We'd long since finished eating and drinking, and the restaurant was half empty by then. We'd been feeling relaxed and satisfied but the irritation of this put a damper on our mood. Its because of this that I've marked down the rating to average.

Having eaten in many Brazilian restaurants I can tell you this is very different. The meat was not as good. Salad was brought to your table. There was no buffet style selection of many of my favorites. Getting past my initial expectations/hopes we had a good meal. Service was fine. We sat outside right across the street from a castle on a canal -nice view. The ice cream and chocolate mousse were large and good.

We booked a birthday dinner for 12, the table was ready and a nice Staff as well to give us a warm welcome. You pay fix price for a menu and you get all you can eat. Food is really good,well grilled juicy beef, tasty prawns and fishes, vegetables,pineapple, bananas. The only thing you have to decide is a choice between a baked patato or french fries( rather belgian fries:) Wine is ok too. The only small minus is that when dishes are beeing served you have to be very careful - greasy spots are all over . To have an apron is a good idea.
A place worth recomendation, always busy. I am sure you have to book in advance.

Worst place so far after 3 countries in a round trip through Europe. It's a disrespect to customers the kind of service this place has. Food is great, but you'll wait for up to 40 min between dishes, and beg for specialties like shrimp, picanha or lamb. I believed Europeans got used to it, if you notice others comments to analyze. For us, paying almost 30 euros plus drinks and dessert, it's not worth or you need to be in a great mood to challenge your patience. What a pity!

This was the worst dining experience of our Europe vacation. The "all you can eat" menu was offset by the need to beg waiters and waitresses to bring food and drink to our table. What little did come was delicious, but of all the items, we were only offered about half of what was available. Big price, poor service.
