“Brazilian feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

We found this restaurant by chance at Chijmes when out after we had eaten and decided we had to go back! The ambassadors come to your table with huge meat skewers and carve the meat onto your plate although you are encouraged to use the tongs provided to hold the meat as it is carved. Very much an eat as much as you can venue with a huge salad bar and constant visits from the ambassadors. When you feel defeated you simply turn over the disc on your table to have rest! An amazing alfresco setting at Chijmes which is an old church still in use as a venue for wedding receptions so we had some impromptu entertainment whilst photos were taken of a wedding party as it became dusk and the lights came on. We'll recommended for the fantastic and varied meat, good service and unusual setting.

“One word......salty”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Having been to similar restaurants, we had high expectations of Carnivore at Chijmes on 15 Feb 2014. Unfortunately, all of the dishes (including salads) were extremely salty. We were only offered 3 slices of meat including burnt chicken hearts. The service was very slow. At $144 + for 2 people we will not be going back!!

“Not worth the effort”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

A restaurant in Chijme area that is probably best left out. The area is undergoing renovation and several restaurants were closed. The Carnivore buffet was not impressive even though there were several choices of rice, potatoes, salads etc as they did not appear appetizing. The various meats carved at the table all seemed to have the same tastes and nothing was exceptional or stood out. The staff were not too helpful and overall the food and drinks were expensive and disappointing. From our experience, not a place to be recommended.

“Risky Seafood Starter”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

We went to the restaurant a little after 10:00 PM. We were told that the kitchen was closed for fresh food but they offered us the open buffet.
We picked up several starters, including macaroni salad, and squid with tomato sauce. The few of the starters were not edible at all, but we ate the squid mainly.
We also had cocktail drinks, we compared the drinks we had the previous night at another restaurant and drinks were very poorly served.
I had food poisoning the very same night, my partner had the next day and it lasted several days. I suggest not to eat from the open buffet if it is after the lunch.

“average churrascaria for Brazilian standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Went at Dempsey on a Friday night. Maybe not well known yet, a few people with the exception of a group of 10+ people. Service is good.The buffet is ok, many cold salads, soup, some fruits. I felt better than the one in Vivocity, the feijoada had some meat in, it was ok however the food is in a counter directly under the air con without any protection lid, what makes it warm to cold. Not acceptable for Brazilian standards. The types of meat are a selected few ( don't expect many types, also during lunch time, they serve less types as the website mentions). The meat was a bit well done and the drinks are expensive. Caipirinha at SGD14 and a bottle of sparkling water at SGD8, is a bit too much. Environment was nice, inside and outside available, very comfortable.
