Don't be confused by the name—which means "big pig" in Portuguese—this is a comfortably elegant place serving good barbeque to a sophisticated clientele. Popular with the rich and famous, you may come face to face with soccer stars and TV personalities. Choose from many different cuts of beef, pork, mutton and chicken served on spits directly at your table. Seafood and salads are also offered. There is a separate area with more privacy for private events.
At the recommendation of a friend I went to Porcao. I should have starved myself for days beofre. The food was excellent and plentiful. The prices were excellent. The people were happy and friendly as one expects of Cariocas. The only disappointment was the ambiance. It was very clean and very bright and shiny. It was not unlike a diner in that respect. Otherwise great. Personally I prefer Marius, more expensive but it feels much more sympatique.
...I ever had.
The salad table and everything that goes on was fantastic. Will be coming back soon.
It is a very pleasant place and the food perfect. You can choose from any kind of meet as well as several fish dishes also cheese, fruits,etc. I had my wife's family with me and the service was perfect even for a big group.
I like very much eat in "Rodizios", so for me, this restaurant in question is one of the best "Rodizio" in the world.
Concerning the service, all the people in there was very friendly and attentious. The meal was excellent.
Don't misset, you must go there defennitly.
i had heard about it for a long time but each time i wanted to go,i was advised rather strongly to go only when i was really really hungry. now i understand.
porcao is a wonderful experience and a must see for all visitors in Rio. Beautiful view, nice ambiance,waiters who want to please and the very best food. lots and lots of good food.
This place is the mecca of all Brazilian BBQ restaurants called churrascas. It has the most amazing views of Pao de Asucar (Sugar Loaf), the famous rock on the coast. Endless amounts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken and more are brought to your table and sliced to order. Not to mention an extensive buffet that provides enough food on its own. The retaurant is very big, but so is the wait staff, so the service is amazing. A must when visiting Rio.
My whole family all ten of us rated this as our favourite restaurant that we visited on out recent trip to Rio.... to sum it up in one word - 'Awesome' .... we had our meal straight after a trip to sugar loaf and probably were not dressed exactly smart enough but none less as with all Cariocas the staff were exceptionally welcoming, gave a high level of service and even some good humour.... i only hope i am able to return some time soon
