“Excellent picanha!”

Fogo Brazilian BBQ Experience
Ranked #1 of 265 Restaurants in Queenstown
Price range: US$11 - US$45
Description: From The Pampas to The Remarkables….. The traditional Churrasco (Barbecue) method was forged by the Gaúcho (cowboy) of the South Brazilian plains. After a long day spent on horseback the Gaúcho would set up camp. He would then dig a hole in which to build his fire (Fogo) protected from The Pampas winds. Once the Fogo was roaring, the Gaúcho would slow roast his bounty caught that day. As the sun set over the Rio Grande do Sul, the Gaúcho, content with a belly full of churrasco, would slumber in the quiet of the plains.

Excellent service and excellent picanha! We loved the beans, banana fritters, rice and baguette. They have a very nice caipirinha and mocktails. Overall very nice place to eat. Just missed a cup of coffee at the end.

Thought we'd try for lunch seeing we hadn't tried it yet. The staff were friendly, the place was bustling so we were optimist about this new restaurant. Unfortunately even though the portions are very generous for a lunch dish, there was no flavour and all of our meats were very tough and cooked inconstantly. The food looked slapped on the plate with hunks of meat thrown on. We tried it but unfortunately we won't be back and we won't be recommending this restaurant.

It seems a pity to break a series of five star ratings, and I've wondered how to keep this at five, but the reality is that several of our lunch orders (party of nine) were mixed. Okay, that's been said. Now the good news : this is more than just a dining experience, this is fun. Tasty food. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Good value. So close to five. Thanks.
