“Epic Brazilian BBQ”

Fogo Brazilian BBQ Experience
Ranked #1 of 265 Restaurants in Queenstown
Price range: US$11 - US$46
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.

Had dinner here with the family. Chose the all you can eat barbecue experience where the staff bring skewers of meat directly to your table and carve it onto your plate as required. Great atmosphere, great Brazilian staff giving authentic tips on how it would be eaten in Brazil, great food. The meats were all epic, it was too hard to choose a favourite. Leave room for the grilled pineapple at the end or you’ll be missing out. Obrigado!

We went to Fogo on our first night back from hiking four days on the Keppler trail for our first real meal and they did not disappoint. Although the restaurant was not very busy the food kept coming out and was fresh and delicious. The service from the team there was top notch and they were attentive without being overbearing. Was a great night overall for us and we would go back for sure the next time in Queenstown.
