“Amazing restaurant with live music being played, very nice atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming. The food is really good, buffet style salad bar and vegetables. All you can eat meat, be prepared to eat non stop as it just keeps coming. Highly recommend a visit here, very Brazilian with lovely local food. Book in advance, very busy and can be done online. Superb!”
