Porcão Rio's Review

At lively Porcão, the ultimate in Brazilian churrascaria experiences, bow-tied waiters wielding giant skewers slip nimbly between linen-draped tables, slicing off portions of sizzling barbecued beef, pork, and chicken until you can eat no more. The buffet is huge, with salads, sushi, and pasta and rice dishes, and enough meat-free sides to keep the staunchest of vegetarians happy. Porcão is a chain, with three restaurants in Rio—including one in Ipanema — but the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows with a view over Guanabara Bay to the Sugar Loaf make the Flamengo branch, known as Porcão Rio's, the top choice.

    Porcao Rios

    I´ve never seen such a good place like that. Firslty, the location and wonderful view of sugar loaf are marvelous. Secondly the brazilian barbecue is great! Porcao has a huge variety of meat, chicken, lamb, fish...they have also sushi and salad, which means that even if you are a veggie, you can have lunch there. The service is great! Highly recommend that!

    Meat mercy!

    I've never seen anything like this restaurant before! Besides being a nice place to dine, the food is spectacular. All the foreigners I've talked to while down here say the same thing: Porcao is the best in quality when it comes to "churrascarias"(steakhouses). I took my chances, went and was not disappointed! You'll do well skipping breakfast if you're going for lunch.

    Right choice for our last night in Rio

    We went to the Flamengo branch and enjoyed being seated on a corner with floor to ceiling glass overlooking the bay and Sugarloaf... There is a big salad bar and so much meat brought to your table... it was a good value for the money spent...
