Disappointing

Have been to a number of Churrascaria style restaurants here and abroad, and in terms of food quality, this is definitely the bottom of the pile. Almost everything was overcooked and dry. The lamb was tough and chewy, as was the ham and chicken. The beef hump, perhaps the least overcooked, was overwhelmingly fatty.

The salad bar was also underwhelming in choice. No offer of desserts at the end of the service.

Ambience was ok for a large group. Otherwise, no real reason to return.

Disappointed

Tried two other Brazilian restaurants before, heard this is a recently opened one so gave it a try.

Was expecting they would serve Turkey since it's Christmas. Was disappointed that staff was not as friendly as the other two places. Although the meat quality was okay, however they were a bit too salty. Average wait for another serve to come was 10 - 20 mins. Stopped serving after 10pm while we've only eaten a few pieces of meat. There were not enough staff and not enough varieties.

No UOB discount due to holiday season and we ended up paying $60 per person and no one was full. Definitely not going back.

Food is not bad but others not

Called up to check whether the UOB offer of 1 free for 3 diners is still valid. Was told the offer has expired but there is another offer of 15% off total bill. Made reservations for dinner.

Place was not crowded when we arrived. Was promptly seated. Ordered the all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet at $39.80++ per person. The place uses a green and red colour card to signify whether you want to be served with more food for green or red for no more servings please. We were served continuously with various types of BBQ meat. My recommendations are the beef hump and the chicken heart. Was impressed with the initial round of service. However, after the initial first round of servings, no-one bothers to come round anymore though all of us were showing the GREEN cards on our table. I had to call the servers to bring the BBQ items to us, and this did not improve. The grilled pineapple which was a must-have in most other churrasco place was sadly under-grilled here. Service went downhill after the initial round of servings. The waitress started clearing our plates and removing our cutleries when we were waiting for them to come and serve us with more food. We had to ask the waitress to bring annother set of plates and cutleries.

I paid the bill with my UOB card but upon checking the bill, found out that there was no 15% discount as told earlier. The waiter went back to check with his manager and return to tell me that the discount was not applicable on the eve of public holiday. I told him that when I made the reservation, I was told there was a discount. Not wanting to make a scene, I paid the full price and left.

Though the food here is not bad, but it is not the best churrasco in town. And coupled with the bad service and wrong communication about the discount, I am sure I will not return to this place for a long time.

Churrascaria with Quality

Churrascaria has long been associated with the roasting of poorer quality meats for hours till it becomes so tender, ideal for the masses with the limited budget. However in Singapore, it has been associated with a mid to high end market segment, and many of the churrascaria here offer good quality meats instead of the usual beef ass (rum) to justify the price.

At a recent tasting, I had the chance to check out Senor Santos, the latest entrant into this market. The vibe is a nice slightly dark setting like a steakhouse. Down to the food, I recommend starting with the salad bar. Yes, you heard it right, start with the greens. They have an interesting assortment of items (many with middle eastern influences) on the salad bar, one of which is the cod. Yes, it is rare that one sees such good quality fish on a salad bar.

Down to the meat most of the items I tried were done well from the beef, to the chicken and the fish. If you like something rich with some level of grease, go for the beef hump. However, my favourite has to be the medium rare tenderloin, with juices intact. It's a must try here.

Wash all of it down with the lime caipirinha, which is a really refreshing on a hot sunny day..

The conclusion after a heavy lunch: This has to be one of the better churrascaria in town.
