Carnaval Brazilian BBQ
My husband & I visit at least once a month ..... we love the atmosphere, the food .... everything about the place!
Was a very good experience for sure I’m going back again thanks for all the people who work there very good attention:)
The concept is great. \however the execution is poor. We had to wait for the meat dishes to circulate and when they delivered a portion is was barely a bite. The meat was cooked perfectly but the high amount of salt detracted from the taste. \it came to a point that everything tasted the same "Salt Cured."
I think it's the kind of place you have to try to say you did, but I'm not sure we would go again. It has a cafeteria setting and your sides get cold fast while your still eating all the different types of meat. The service was great though. We enjoyed most of the meats, but our sides were somewhat flavorless. Also, there are no condiments, salt, pepper, ketchup, gravy...etc. The atmosphere is not the one you see on the website, they are two different restaurants. One is a menu ( first floor) and one is the all you can eat( second floor). The first floor is the one they show on their website.
Thank you for treat us as special. The food was wonderful
WE WERE UNFORTUNATELY VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR MEAL. WE COME TO EAT AT CARNAVAL EVERY YEAR FOR MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY, AND THIS YEAR IT DID NOT MATCH THE STANDARDS THAT WE HAVE SEEN IN PREVIOUS VISITS.
THIS YEAR WE FOUND THE MEAT WAS OVERCOOKED AND UNDER SEASONED. THE LAMB, WHICH IS MY FAVORITE, WAS NOT PINK AT ALL, BUT GREY AND WELL DONE. THE TRICK TIP STEAK, WHICH IS MY HUSBAND'S FAVORITE, WAS ALSO WELL DONE AND HAD NONE OF THE SEASONINGS THAT WE LOVED.
I DID NOTICE THERE WAS A DIFFERENT PERSON AT THE GRILL AND WAS SPENDING A LOT OF TIME CHATTING WITH HIS COWORKERS.
WE LOVE COMING TO YOUR RESTAURANT, AND WE DON'T WANT ONE EXPERIENCE TO PUT US OFF. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS KNOWN THAT THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD WAS POOR. (THE SIDES WERE GREAT. LOVED THE SALADS AND RISOTTO)
Great food and service! Anyone looking for great Brazilian food will find this a great place!
Carnival offers a unique experience, I feel the $55 you pay for an adult dinner is on the steep side, I was with a group of 5 and feel none of us at $55 worth of food. The service was as good though, but we did find it on the louder side, between the music and hearing the conversations all around us, there was a few times, we couldn’t hear well. With all that being said, if there is someone visiting from another province and want to offer them a unique experience this would be a good place to take them for that. I will only go, if someone I know wants to try it for the first time.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The service was well-timed and friendly, all staff were up to par. I loved it.
The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. Would definitely recommend, and will definitely be back.
Overpriced, and the food didn't meet expectations. I would have much prefered a good steak at a nice restraunt and saved $20 per plate.
Good food, they have few new meat selections, great!
Not happy to get charged $9 for a piece of cake we didn't order. Just mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and it showed up with a charge on our bill. Food however was fantastic.
The atmosphere is very nice, but we found the food to be extremely salty and the meat on the dry side. We looked at it as a new experience, but would not return, as it was very expensive for what we had. The staff was awesome!
A lot of great tasting meat, expertly prepared and cooked. Unfortunately sooner or later you get full. You regret having such a small stomach. I wished I could eat more. Sides which include a variety of salads, are very good too.
It was good. I thought expensive for what you get. They push the chicken and sausage but not so much of the better cuts of meat.
I took a buddy to treat him to a great dinning experience.
He was really surprised by the high quality of the meat being served.
He said that this rodizio was a first class event for him
The potato sides were a bit disappointing the mashed potatoes were waterly.
and the baked potato sticks were to dry.
The fried ice cream was pretty good.
the service was polite and attentive.
Amazing food, atmosphere and staff!! Overall it’s a fabulous dining experience!!!
Service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious and we left full and satisfied. We tried the fried ice cream for dessert and would certainly recommend it. We will be back
Very delicious! Be ready with an empty stomach. A really fun way to taste a variety of meats
Amazing as usual. We set our reservation a bit later than usual, but still experienced good food and a great time with family (and of course the sangria is BUENO).
Definately not for veggies. Excellent if you like to enjoy trying various meat selection.
The “main course” (ie the meat) were mostly excellent. They were well seasoned and mostly medium which understanding the format is fine. A few missteps with some pork tenderloin that was well done and dry, and ribs that lacked flavour. Beware that everything not served on the skewer looks like it was baked in the oven. Looks like those tend to lack the same care to seasoning.
Our favourites were the flanked steak, ribeye, and bacon wrapped steak. This restaurant does beef well. A real surprise actually wasn’t meat but the cinnamon pineapple. It was a welcome pallet cleanser after all that salty meat and it was so juicy. We had heard that they used to roast it via skewer but this time it didn’t come that way so it must have come from the oven. We speculated how differently it would taste on the skewer. We liked it so much we asked for seconds.
The sides were ok. Not much to say there.
A word of advice is to pace yourself and only ask for small slices of meat. There is a lot of variety and you’ll want to try them all. But because they keep on coming, it can easily pile up on your plate and get cold and no one likes cold steak. Better to wait for something hot than have a pile of meat getting cold on your plate.
We were too full for desert!
Food was very bland, dry, over cooked and salty. There was no texture difference between any of the food. Roasted vegetables were a bowl of mush. The price of meals does not reflect the quality of food you expect. I would not recommend this place. Save yourself let down and go to Hermanos. Atmosphere is bleak and feels very cheap. Service is great though and the staff is excellent. It is s real shame
I will say that the various meats are way too salty for my liking. Because of this I probably would only go here once every 1-2 years..
It's a little expensive and there are some stuffs of Brazilian barbeque missing like " queijo coalho".
Awesome place, Very nice people, Well prepared food
Food and drinks were really good. The servers were a bit unorganized. Our overall experience was nice and we would recommend to others.
Service was prompt, food delicious, and waitstaff very friendly. It made our special occasion fantastic, and we're excited to return with family.
Nice place, wonderful service and great staff
I really recommend that place
We came for my mom’s 65th birthday. It was her first time she really enjoyed all the food and everything Carnaval had to offer. We love coming to this place and we for sure will be coming back soon.
Absolutely love the food! Will defiantly be coming back! 🙂
A must do experience in Winnipeg. Will definitely go again!
The last time I went here, it was great! This time I was completely disappointed. All the meat was over cooked and really black on the outsides. The service was good, but the guy serving the meat wouldn’t do a regular run through all the tables like our server did last time. So we were waiting for meat for 5 to 10 minutes some times because he would just pick random tables to go too. Overall it wasn’t bad, but I think I’m done with the hype of this place. Not really worth it for the price. You’re better off with just going to The Keg.
First time their. The staff was great and explain every to us. Was clean . Food was filling. My favorite was the chicken bacon wrap. Will definitely be going again.
Great experience. Love how they acknowledged our anniversary. Friendly staff and great food.
Our server was amazing. I’m sorry I don’t remember her name. All the folks serving the meat were amazing too. You have a great group of staff. One staff member was clearly learning, maybe his first night, everyone was so supportive helping him learn.
We had such an enjoyable evening. My husband and I took another couple out for their birthday dinners. We had reserved the table and requested one by the window which we received. I had mentioned in my request that we were celebrating our friends' birthdays and we were all so wonderfully surprised to receive two desserts for them. The servers were amazing and we truly had a memorable night out. Thank you!
Carnaval is more than just a meal. There is an experience with the food and the way its served. The quality of the meats is 2nd to none. The sides are secondary and they want you to eat the meat. They just keep bringing it.
Servers were friendly, serving delicious and perfectly cooked meats! Waitress was very sweet and came around to refill our waters with the glass pitcher-something I’ve never had anyone do but it was super appreciated! Overall 10/10 stars
