Nice ambiance and attentive staff, had the meat buffet plus two beers, came to £45, (R$170) not too bad I guess if you were in Paris, but Rio, home of the beef, a little expensive, however, excellent quality, plus they included a free taxi back to the hotel, at the opposite end of the beach, approx 3 miles away.

Service was good; the meat was good as well. The salad buffet and side dishes were not as good as my previous experiences in other similar restaurants in Rio, with fewer options.

It's a nice and clean restaurant where to enjoy the typical rodizio brasileiro. A good food's quality and a very well done cantine to taste a wide selection of south american wines. To close the lunch/dinner a good caipirinha with some dessert.

The Barra Grill is a large restaurant on 2 floors. The salad bar is fresh & has a variety of cold salads. The meat choices are nicely cooked with cuts of beef, lamb & chicken. The service was reasonable & the cost was R120 per person with ladies half price on a Monday. Overall, it was good value for money.

The typical Brazilian way: many delicious variations of meat are brought and cut at your table - and the waiters just keep on coming... You just eat as much as you can - and you can supply with salad and more from a buffet bar. The quality of the meat was very, very good. We had nice Brazilian wines -... More

I have been nearly a vegetarian for a few months, but in Barra grill I realized I can not be a full one, as meat tasted sooooo delicious! Staff was oferring more and more meat from grill, different types, but the food in buffet was also very nice. Excellent!... only a bit crowded... I recommend to make a reservation.

Returned with work colleagues on 25th October. Great salad bar & endless amounts of beautifully cooked meats carved at the table. The fried banana is a must also. Will definitely be back when in Barra next.

I went for a dinner upon recommendation of a friend, food is good but not great in terms of quality variety. The price is good though versus other places in the Copacabana

Very busy on a Monday evening but got a table no problem. Very efficient service -plates arrive immediately and then the meat kept on coming! Different cuts straight onto your plate Great variety - steaks were well cooked and not overdone as I suspected they might be. There is a huge buffet bar in the middle of the room where... More
