The lunch buffet had a very small selection for both apps and meats.
Would recommend training staff further and being more efficient with time.
Overall, for the price, really not worth it.

Seems pricey, but the variety and quality of the meats definitely worth the experience and price

Always a great place to take out of town family.
Awesome food.
This visit, the garlic bread was missing and the prime rib steak was well done. But, all Good. Next time hope to try again

For that kind of price (especially for teens) and added gratuity for 8 or more ppl, I would have expected we would never have baked on meat on our cutlery, water jug and glass. I would have expected we would not be waiting 40 mins for our dessert delivery. Just a bunch of small details that did not add to the value or experience. I’ve tried it once, probably won’t be back.

Was seated half an hour late despite reservations. Our waitress never came around. Always had to ask the men serving the meat to go get her. Someone from my party slipped on grease they neglected to clean up. When we placed an order for more sides with our waitress we had to ask twice for it multiple times. Despite all these they still took a mandatory gratuity off the bill.

The food was great, but for me on average is a bit expensive and will only be able to visit on real special occasions.... a few times the waitress took too long to check on us (waited a long time to ask for our dessert and to ask for our check)

For sure a small piece of Brazil in Winnipeg.
The food is tasty and the staff friendly and helpful.
Best place to enjoy the authentic Brazilian cuisine.

Very unique restaurant. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try something different. A little pricy though. Loved the complimentary dessert! Nice place to celebrate a special occasion.

Loved the food and the ambience. Service was great. Only really two small "complaints"... 1) no name tags makes you have to wave for a sever and 2 ) chicken only came around twice and wasnt as generous as beef/pork/sausage.
Overall would send anyone here for a great meal.

Enjoyed this unique experience. Celebrated a birthday. The food was good - flank our favorite - sides good but focus was on the meat. We tried all that was offered. Service friendly and fast. We had a window seat but side facing so wasn't the best - would have preferred front view but reserved apparently and noted that as we appreciate our view those sitting at those tables were more focused on food and conversation and rarely saw any of them looking out the window. Disappointed at that. But otherwise overall experience very good. Appreciated the free gesture of cake for the birthday boy - were able to take it with us as we had a show to catch and had to leave. Would allow ourselves a little longer next time. Would recommend.

I love going to Carnaval. Food is amazing but I found during our last visit some of the meat was over cooked or dry. Everything else was what I expected, great!

The meat was burn. The chicken wings were spicy but it didn't say so on the menu. It took forever to bring our side dishes and they kept forgetting one of them every round. The meat had all the same taste: burned and salty. And whatever was not burned, it was too red to eat.
The waitress was nice and brought us a flan as an apology. I appreciate that, but I am not coming back or recommending it. We did heard from friends that it wasn't good. Now we know for ourselves.

Booked for 8 and called to add 2 more. When we arrived there were 9 chairs and was told we only booked 9. Girl on the phone had a very hard time understanding as she spoke a different language. We got a call as well to inform us of 18% auto gratuity added to groups of 8 or more even with our 4 year old grand daughter. Service was really slow and often confusing as our waitress had a hard time communicating due to language issue. Bills and paying was totally messed up as well and it took three of us to try and explain it. Food was alright.

Only downside is that parking is terrible by the docks so we ended up having to walk a long distance to get to restaurant

It was a fantastic experience to sit at a table and food was constantly being brought over. The servers were very friendly and accommodating. There were a few items we did not like at all, but that’s just personal taste. I would go again and maybe try the lunch, it’s considerably easier on the wallet 😉

I was totally thrilled with my experience there. The meat was fantastic, they had Montreal steak spice veal which was my first time I had experienced veal. And bam it hit the spot.. That tri tip sirloin was fantastic. Unfortunately I did not receive the best piece of the ribeye but I was in a partial salt coma at that time and was already speechless from the veal, which was tge first cut I tried. . Those cheese balls were just beyond what I was expecting in a appetizer side dish. The service was absolutely fantastic. I only wish the ambience was a little more upscale than what I was expecting. Good view but just a bit too bright for me. It was a bit casual but the food and service was the highlight. I went there for my bday dinner with a friend.

Thanks again for the good time. The

There are more food selections but not all available for lunch. I didn’t know until we looked at menu. Everything on menu that has ** is served for dinner only.

First time I have been to this restaurant. It was amazing. We arrived on time and were seated right away. Our server explained all our options,the processes to get our meat dishes,and how the staff worked. She took the time to make sure we were satisfied and were happy with our decisions. The evening went well. We were there with friends for an anniversary celebration and were treated beyond our expectations with kindness and great service all night. Our meal was phenomenal dessert was great. We have all decided we will be back.

A lot of improvement from my last visit in 2017.
Only complaint would be that there wasn't as many steak options as other Brazilian BBQ places I've tried.

It was a great experience and I will for sure be back! I have already recommended it to some friends and will be planning my nest dinner even there! The sides were amazing and I loved it. I did feel like it was quite expensive for two people after having one drink, we paid close to $200 so that was a bit pricey! It was good though and I will be back again soon!
