Priced on a par with Fogo do Chão, the city’s other top rodízio (all-you-can-eat) meat-a-thon, Barbacoa isn’t cheap, but its range and quality of both cuts and creatures, including fish and wild boar, is outstanding. While many churrascarias have all the ambience of an airport lounge, the gentlemen’s club-esque atmosphere here, with an abundance of dark wood and leather armchairs, adds to the sense of self-indulgence, and the bar is a cosy spot for a pre-dinner caipirinha. Expect a feast of seriously good flesh; elasticated waistbands recommended.
