About

This restaurant is permanently closed. The Real Brazilian Tradition in Old Montreal.



The specialty of the house is the “Rodízio”. This concept offers the possibility of tasting, in “all you can eat” way, plus then 10 differents types of meats, served on the spit in each table and the meat is sliced straight on your plate. At Rodízio Brasil, we use the “all you can eat” system not only for meats, but also for the delicious salad bar, where you’ll find rice, beans, fries which are part of the Brazilian meat. In addition, we have a tasty menu that offers other options to the ones who prefer fish, sea food, pasta or chicken.

We also have a bar where you can have a drink while watching sporting events and others.

Le restaurant était fermé, malgré la réservation faite .
Comment ce fait il que cela n’était pas indiqué sur l’application ?
Donc de ce fait je n’utilise plus cette application car elle ne vérifie pas ce qu’elle met en ligne .

Très, très bien. L'attention du personnel, le rodizio, excellentes viandes servies généreusement.
Devront porter une attention particulière à la 'caipirinha'.

Merci à tout le personnel. Tous très aimables. À retourner...

My wife and I have been hosting a student from Southern Brazil since September, and before she left we wanted to experience Brazilian cuisine. The experience was amazing, and our student agreed it was reminiscent of home, although she said the meats taste even better back home. The meats were delicious on our visit, so I can’t imagine how good it must be in Brazil.

Terrible experience. Worse Brazilian “steakhouse” in North America. Nothing compared with Copacabana or Touros in Toronto. Waitress didn’t know what beers they had and which they didn’t, they don’t know the difference between rare meat and medium meat, salad bar seems to be 4 or 5 days old, and after all that, waitress reminded me to give her tips, to which I respectfully said NO to. Go to Subway or grab yourself a Big Mac, but please do not go there.

Christmas eve dinner. Just a house wine, pretty good, but no wine chart although several wines were on display. Salad bar was really small and did not present very well, the french fries were over cooked. There were a variety of meats and all were excellent. The meat runners were all skilled and very friendly. The desert was presented as a chocolate cake but really a slice of banana loaf (or similar) with a cold chocolate sauce over it. A warm sauce may have been a lot better. The meat was worth the price of the dinner. Definitely not bad but not standing out either.

Birthday, reservations at 7 on Sunday 11/12/18

Meat was good, but the portions were tiny one small slice of meat and waiter could not give more slices at one time so we had to wait for him to come around for a second slice of meat WHICH MADE OUR DINNER VERY LONG.

Salad bar AWFUL. Not fresh. Not gourmet. Very typical. Lettuce salad (wilted), potato and macaroni salad. Very sad actually. Wilted salads and nothing seemed fresh.

Bar tiny. DVD of some Brazilian Singer was on loop.

Beans and rice were good. Was only given 1 slice of roasted sweet potatoes and one slice of roasted banana (said was plantains but they were WAY too sweet for that), 1 slice of fried polenta, French fries as sides (wanted seconds but was refused. You would think I could as I didn’t like and didn’t eat ANY of the salad bar offerings)

Priced ok, $30, REALIZE there are no high end cuts of meat tho. Did love roasted wild boar and they didn’t have anymore. Lamb was very good. Sirloin and Picanta was medium well done. Sausage and Chicken was over cooked. Most meats were medium well done. Could not get rare beef of any kind.

If you are looking for a high Brazilian Steakhouse, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE if you are looking for that, for to FDC OR TDB.

THIS IS NOT LIKE FOGO DE CHAO or TEXAS DE BRAZIL.

Nunca he sentido vergüenza de llevar a mi hijo a un restaurante especial hasta hoy. Pedimos all you can eat. Cada espada tardaba 5 minutos. A veces le llegaba al vecino pero no a nosotros. Quisimos repetir y ya no había. Seguíamos con semáforo verde (Rodizio) pero nos preguntaron si queríamos más. La carne llegaba fría. Los vecinos se quejaban de lo mismo. Francamente de lo peor que he comido nunca. Me dio pena la mesera y le dejé propina pero de verdad me fastidiaron la noche. No vayan!

Service was horrible...asked for the wine list and water for the table at least four times.
There was supposed to be a special cheese bread and meat dish that we asked for multiple times.
It finally came and was tiny and burnt.

They just stopped serving meats, the salad bar was a joke, the meat is not grilled on a wood fire...just an electric rotisserie.....

Overall bad experience....

Reservations for a Saturday night. Restaurant was overcrowded on arrival and got worse as we ate. Our table for 2 had about 12” on each side, with wait staff squeezing by and bumping into everything. The service was slow from the beginning; 15 minutes for drink orders. The quality of the salad bar was disappointing; the quantities were very large, leading you to think they prepare several days worth of food in advance. The meat itself was ok but not outstanding. I would not go back.

Honestly, if you are looking to eat some good, tasty meat... Rodizio Brazil fits the bill. All the meat tasted good. ALL OF IT. Unfortunately, I was not crazy about the rest of the options for the side dishes but I will admit the Potato Salad was on point. (Everything else was disappointing.) At the end of the day, my girlfriend and I enjoyed what we came for : All-You-Can-Eat-Meat. The service, on the other hand, was as good as the meat was delicious. Not crazy about the seating... (The chairs were a bit brutal.) However, I will be warm-heartedly recommending this place to everyone I talk to for a nice, casual not complicated dinner which is hard to come by these days!

Although cozy inside there is a cafe setup outside. The food was plentiful and tasty except for the steak we paid extra for was burned! Stick to the churrascaria servers and the salad bar.

Repas excellent. Il faut aimer la viande. Végétariens s’abstenir. Service sympathique. Le système de rondelles pour prendre une pause n’a pas fonctionné. Mets typiques brésiliens.
Je recommanderais pour sortie en couple, entre amis ou petit groupe. En résumé, petit restaurant très sympathique. Service très bon. À essayer.

Food was way too salty, price are very expensive.
I think because it’s buffet so they make the food salty and people can drink a lot of water, totally not worth to go there if you want have huge amount of meat or you want have a tasting meal.
