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.
