Salad buffet was excellent, good sushi, attentive service and great Churrasco.. All fresh, clean and well taken care off. Kids had enough distraction at the playing area so we had quality time. Just the decoration/athmosphere could perhaps be slightly better. For 2 adults and 2 kids with one round of caipirinha it was R$ 300.-

Very good churrascaria, lots of variety of meats, the buffet has lots of different salads and seafood. The waiter service is also good . Meal for 2 without alcoholic beverages is around BRL 230,00.
The best choice for Churrasco in Barra da Tijuca.

Wide range of food from salad, sushi, lots of different kind of meats, desserts and cheese etc. In short very good!

The acustic was less good, the waiters were professionel but in generel neither warm nor smiling like we normal experience in Brazil; they seemed not to strive for giving the customers a good experience; instead we hot the impression that they behaved more like "I am only here for the money".

Irrespective of the above the overall exeprience was OK until I had coffee to which the waiter served a few Muffins. As I took one of these my wife said "there is an animal" which turned out to be a COCKROACH!

But that was not the worst! The really bad experience was the reaction from the manager we called to take it out. He did that without saying a word and he did not turn to excuse! Thus we asked for his boss, who either not found our experience especially bad.

Hence we decided to leave (we had payed), and now something happened. The manager of the restaurant came and offered us 25% of the money back, which we said we did not want because it was not a matter of money.

Instead we told him, that we were astonished by the lack of seriousness about the situation from his people, and that this had led us to believe that finding a COCKROACH in Rio Brasa was an everyday experience.

After that we left and we will probably not come back again.

The restaurant was recommended by knowing people.
Wide choice of fresh food and salads, fresh sushi, oysters!
Nice and tasty meat, sometimes there are special meat, which is even more tasty than "standard" meat.
There are kids playing area, so parents could spend some quite time alone.
There are huge amount of wine, some local beer, and international brands.
Typical dinner without wine - 220-230 BRL( 1$= 2 BRL, 1£= 3 BRL), with wine from 270 BRL.
Would recommend to anyone.
