Barry, VT Member Spartan sugguested this Brazilian Steakhouse for our SD VT Meeting on 9 November 2002. This was an excellent choice for the location, for the service and for the food.

There is a small outside dining area and plenty of room inside. We were warmly welcomed and every effort was made to accommodate our needs.


I've since eaten here quite a few times and the experience and food each time has been as wonderful as the first. I'll mention that they also offer entertainment at dinner on the weekends that is live and the singers/musicians/dancers perform throughout the dining room.

Favorite Dish: It offers buffet style service with a huge salad bar for Veggie Lovers, and many side dishes including the elusive white asparagus.

Generous portions of high quality chicken, beef, pork and lamb are brought to the table on skewers and offered to each person by the passadors. There are ninteen varieties of meat to choose from and it's okay to accept all nineteen as part of the unlimited buffet!! The flavor of each was delicious.

They are opened for lunch and dinner and there is one price to pay for everything, except the bar tab!

The whole meal was a process which creates even more of a festive mood than one would expect. There was one meat that I though exceptionally delicious, but no sense telling you, as it might spoil the fun of finding out for yourself.

This is one of my favorite San Diego Restaurants!
