Best for Value for money - Expert review of A Picanha

A meat-eaters' heaven at this all-you-can-eat Brazilian BBQ.

I like to skip lunch in preparation for dinner at this gut-busting all-you-can-eat meat-fest. There’s no menu and the only question you’ll be asked by the waiter is how you like your picanha (Brazilian barbecued rump steak, cooked whole and sliced into thin strips) cooked – I go for mal passado or rare.

Food and drink: 

There’s steak or steak. Oh, and sides of salad, beans and toasted manioc flour washed down with zingy caipirinhas.

Ambience: 

It’s a candle-lit joint with a quiet air, save for the calm hum and slurp of hungry diners gobbling through slices of steak.

Service: 

Efficient and friendly.

Location: 

In the quiet streets of Lapa, it’s easily noticeable.

Price advice: 

With drinks etc, my tab usually comes to about 25 euros-a-head, which is pretty good for the half cow I usually eat.
