Alas I was informed inside that they no longer do the rodízio de churrasco, only buffet à kilo. Buffet was so-so, not as good as Siqueira Grill.

I´ve been to this place a few times and it offers a fantastic and authentic Brazilian style barbecue experience - smiling waiters offering various meat delights on skewers, cold beer, extensive salads and vegetable buffet - all you can eat of course. Interestingly places like this in Brazil also have sushi - and i must say that here there is ok sushi - not the best - but well presented with all the trimmings.

Since 2007 when I first went to Rio the other buffets similar to this, i.e. Carretão, Porcão, have rocketed up in price so much that it´s almost not worth going to them.
Personally Monchique gets my vote. It´s not pretentious and it is very good for honest normal people without limitless cash, who are looking for a good meal.

If you aren´t going to eat as much as you possibly can there is the kilo option too. Just to clarify!

This is one of the best buffet around Copacabana be it breakfast, lunch or dinner and as a budget traveller you can get to budget the food that you take and weigh it on the scale. The sushi bar area is good enough but the meat dishes are the one I am delighted about! There's a plenty of tables around and staffs are attentive.

A wonderful experience . the idea is you receive a type of receipt and help yourself to the buffet . At the end there is a till and weighing scales . Your food is weighed and a label fixed to your receipt showing the weight .
Enjoy the food and feel free to return as many times as you wish , remembering to weigh it every time . Payment is made once you have finished at a till. Drinks and desserts are ordered with the waiters who will mark your receipt .
Only slight niggle is by the time you have chosen your food and had it weighed it is not as hot as it could be, and the food labels are not in English . However there is usually someone around who will explain .
Some waiters speak a smattering of English but this adds to the fun.
A great place, will be sure to visit on our return

It's a normal place, no to beautiful but normal. The staff is friendly and the food had a good taste. It a buffet with rodizium included. The beverages are not included in the price. The most important info if you want to go there is that you have to be extremely careful when paying the bill . If you can pay with cash because the time I when there they stole our credit card information and use all founds .
