Excelente place to have an authentic Uruguayan meal. I had a medium rare filet grilled perfectly and served under a blanket of grilled provolone cheese, red bell peppers and thin slices of bacon with french fries and rice on the side! Not to mention the provolone cheese grilled to perfection I had as an appetizer!

Loved the staff, the food, and the ambiance in general. Close to town, but not downtown, so kind of nice to get out of the central downtown area. Best fondue in town.

Since the weather in the south of Brazil is often colder, it can be perfect for fondue. Gramado is a charming town with a German style, so this restaurant fits right in. The fondue is rodizio style, which means bottomless, and includes cheese, a meat gril, and chocolate. The cheese round comes with bread, potatoes, carrots, fried polenta and goiabada... More

It is similar to "churrascaria rodizio" style, however, better. They have a set of meat cuts, and you ask the ones you want, whenever you like, the way you like (remember, ALWAYS MID RARE!!!), as many times you like. Side orders are fine, not awesome. So are the meat cuts. Good service, nice place, it is the best place to... More

Late night dinner. Had the special meat order, it was delicious. It comes on a heated stone serving pan. The meat is tasty and side dishes good. In my opinion just the wine list needs a little attention since most of the wines are unknown, it would me a plus for the establishment

They offer different types of meals but their speciality is the Uruguayan Parrilla meat cooking style, offering different types of meat. On Saturdays they will serve as well a "feijoada" buffet, but it doesn't have many varieties and you will find only the usual paio, linguiça, lingua and charque. At night they have offer the option to serve you the... More

All you can eat served to you plate by plate. The waiter asks you what you would like from the menú and then it is at your table. Every plate was hot and awasome. One of our best meals of the trip. Lunch was R$ 69,00 per person all you can eat

If you like to have your stakeS properly done, this is "one of those places". Food is brought to the table at your request and pace and the stakes of different cuts of meat are cooked to perfection at your request as well (and your way). Maybe if you are French and like to eat the cow basically alive you... More
