Diner Reviews
  • "The "meat" at Ekko De Brasil was great....but paying something like $37.00 to $42.00 for a buffet dinner - is a bit too expensive."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Ekko De Brasil is definitely my favourite place to eat! The staff are amazing (hostess could use a little work) and always give me a fun, entertaining, humorous and classy experience. I've been to tons of restaurents all over Ottawa and Quebec and I have to say Ekko is the best. I try to go more often but it is a little pricey so I try to find coupons or gift cards."

  • "The concept of the Brazilian Churrasqueria is great. Initially it was slow to start bringing the meat, but I guess it was because we arrived too early. The quality is not goos as some of the Brazilian ones I have been in the US like Fogo da Chao, but better than couple of places I went in Montreal. I guess for the size of Ottawa is an excellent option, and being superior that the ones I have tried in Montreal gives a very good reference point and excellent level for the Ottawa area."

  • "The food was good but I didn't think it was worth the $42.50. That is high for the selection of food offered. I also expected the girls to dance more than 3 dances."

  • "We ate at the Ekko early - that's just who we are. The food was delicious, service - spot on. It was our first time and we will definitely go back but we'll bring the family next time. Maybe try a Friday or Saturday evening to see how the entertainment is."

  • "Quality of the self serving salad bar was below any reasonable expectation and number of dishes was extremely limited. Only beef Parmesan and Lamb were of reasonable test the rest either overcooked or undercooked. The place looks and feels as going out of business"

  • "Went with my family on Friday for my birthday. I had the experience with the Ekko De Brasil in Gatineau which was great but my experience at the Aylmer location was bad enough that I will not return. The meat took forever to be served at the table and most of the meat was cold and not cook well....my parents end up eating some salad since the meat was not good...my mother told the waitress that it was my birthday and the waitress brought me a piece of cake with a candle and tell me "do you want me to sing Happy Birthday"...lol..really?? in that case I told her no that will be just fine..anyhow, I will never return to this location...it's more expensive then the one in Gatineau and you are really paying more money for a 5 mins dancing show.."

  • "Exciting from the moment you walk in. Our waiter was fantastic, the food was never ending, the service was the best !! The entourage and dancers just made the whole experience over the top ! Definitely do it again....."

  • "We were a group of 10 and one of the couples were from Calgary. They loved the food and have a similar restaurant in Calgary and said it was better than Calgary liked the show (dancers). It was the first time for all of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. Lots to eat and had great service. I asked to be seated near the stage and they advised me they would do their best but could not guarantee anything. They had us seated centre stage. We had one person who is not a meat lover but loved the chicken wrapped in bacon. Overall, no complaints would definitely go back and recommend to people that are looking for a change."

  • "Service was to fast at the beginning. We had just received our drinks and they started none stop with the meats. We finally decided not to order wine because some of us had finish eating. Those of us that taken time for our drinks and to ask several time to be serve meats. It was a Sunday and the restaurant was not that busy. As for the food many hot dish were cold and we had to ask to get fresh platters."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Food was great and lots of it... With all the food going around it would be good to have bigger plates, just a thought and or the servers/replace plates.. The bottle of wine we ordered Berigan Cab Sauv was 35$ at liquor store it was 9.99$ thats the only thing that really bugged me. I can understand marking up the price for wine however felt that was gauging...Overall will go back however to the location were you can bring your own booze."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Service was slow, no water refills, way too expensive for the quality of the meats. The whole experience was not worth it and we will never go back."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Slow service Overpriced Hidden fees Lack of choice of salad bar Never going back"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The assorted meats were delicious and cooked to perfection. The accompanying buffet was limited which is not a bad thing since I wanted to leave room to sample all the spit-roasted goodness. The show was not extravagant but a nice distraction. The service was great and very attentive. We had a Teambuy cupon for two and the diner ended up costing around $110 for two with 2 mixed drinks, a bottle of good wine a Brazilian coffee and desert. That's much more resonable than the estimated regular price of $250 with tip. Not sure I would pay that price for a buffet. We will return with friends next time we can get a Groupon."

  • "Brazillian BBQ meats were excellent (beef, lamb & pork - skip the sausages and rib eye), but although the buffet was okay, it was nowhere as appetizing as the meats - vegetarians beware !"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "As with all Brazilian style restaurants this is again an amazing experience for meat eaters. The meat comes served medium/rare and is extremely well seasoned and top grade quality. The service is exceptional and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday they have live Brazilian entertainment (dancers/ band). Would recommend for a group or couple."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "It was the first time I went to a restaurant where the good reviews that I had read previously did not do it justice. It was truly incredible with amazing service and extremely friendly staff. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion! The meat and sides were simply amazing. As the bonus, the drinks were reasonably priced!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Great place to share with a group of friends. Food is very good and worth waiting for. Servers are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place for freshly BBQ meats served at your table. Good variety at the buffet table too."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Ekko provides a very nice experience. It is a buffet with a difference. Thanks to our waiter the service was fine, but the food servers (blue shirts) seemed to avoid our table all the time and we had to ask our waiter to bring some of the meats that we missed. Our waiter was excellent."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was good, the service was very good too. My only concern is that i could not find the times of the show on the website and I called the restaurant 3 times on 3 different days before my reservation and I never got a call back. It was only through friends that I got to know the time of the last show and we had to modify our reservation time to catch the last two shows."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The service was very good, surprisingly fast. The food itself was very good, well cooked, and different from what you'Re used to in terms of meat. Friendly place, very dim and quiet (on dancer-free nights) easy going, you'd never leave with a non-full stomach. The signature pineapple dessert is an absolute must after this type of meal. Recommended for everyone as a must-try restaurant."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "My date and I really enjoyed ourselves at EKKO de Brasil. The food was well prepared, well presented and tasty. The service was attentive and polite without being intrusive. My only slightly critical comment I might make would concern the mark-up on the wine, which, based on LCBO prices, was slightly over 300%.... however a 250% markup would have meant only a $9 difference. Phil R."

  • "Heard about the restaurant through friends and am so glad we decided to try it. Great food and a great experience. Have already recommended it to several friends!"

  • "I went once in november, it was amazing. Went again last week after buyng a groupon and there was almost no food in the buffet and the food was not good. we didnt get treated as well because we had a groupon"

  • "We had a great time at the Ekko the Brazil. The food was good and the dancers were talented. We didn't really pay a lot of attention to the two first shoes but we were impressed by the last one! They seem to keep the best for last!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We've been to this restaurant several times before and had a reservation for Valentine's Day. The food was very good and the entertainment was excellent but I appreciated the red rose for my lady and the dark chocolate covered strawberries. It was a nice finish to the meal. Though everyone got this treat, the service made us feel very special. We will be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were not pleased with the fact that we arrived with our own wine and were told that we could not bring in our wine! Next time we will go to the one in Gatineau seeing as there you can. The Aylmer location will loose customers because of this! I have friends that choose to go to the gatineau one because of this. And as for the show, well we were not impressed at all! We went to the same restaurant in Montreal and the show was amazing, and they had male dancers as well. And it is so expensive you should be aloud to bring your own wine! We were a familly of 5 so with the tip this meal cost us 281$!!! Good thing we only drank water!!"

  • "Our host was very sweet seating and serving our drinks right away, then our waiter was amazing. He asked our preference for meat and was very prompt in bringing a variety of different types."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We have been to Ekko on many occasions and usually love it but not this time. After being seated, we had to wait over 10 minutes before I finally flagged down the hostess to find out if we even had an assigned server. She had to run around to find someone to look after our table. Next, we ordered drinks. We know we received the watered down versions of the Caprihanas that they serve for their groupons rather than giving us the $8.00 versions as we've had both in the past so we know we didn't get what we paid for. The meat service was slow and we had to ask if they planned on bringing over more than 5 different samples of meat (out of 9). The meat was very,very rare this time. We were disappointed with our dining experience."

  • "ON OUR ARRIVAL WE ARE MET BY A SMILLING FACE THAT ESCORTS US TO OUR TABLE AND ARE SEATED. WE DECIDE TO ASK FOR ANOTHER TABLE CLOSER TO THE MUSIC THAT IS AVAILABLE. NOTHING IS TOO GOOD WE ARE WISKED AWAY TO A PLACE OF OUR CHOICE. THE SECOND SMILING FACE IS THE MAÎTRE D OR HOST IF YOU LIKE. HIS EXPLANATION OF THE RITUAL FOR THE EVENING IS EXPLAINED IN THE FINEST DETAIL NO CHANCE TO ERR WE KNOW HOW IT WORKS NO CHANCE OFMESSING UP THE EVENING. WE ATE THE FINEST FOOD EVER.

  • "From arrival to departure the service was excellent, very friendly and informative as we had never been to such type of restaurant before. All meats were cooked to perfection, taste buds were dancing all evening, melt in your mouth perfect. The buffet part was good mix of other Brazilian dished, although they could have been a tad bit on the hotter side (temperature hot :) Salad selection as well other sides were plenty..the cheeses were a pleasant surprise. The entertainment was fun and interactive during the last show. Great experience overall, will definitely be returning for some other occasion down the line."

  • "Great place, great service, lots of fun! It is a "must try" restaurant, probably one of the best restaurant in Aylmer. It's a fun place to go with a group for a fun, unique experience. Will go back for sure:)"

  • "I was hoping to have a nice night out with my wife, have a few drinks, catch the entertainment and have some great food. One out of 3 isn't what I expected."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Food was amazing as always! Good for people who like a variety of succulent fire cooked meats. The buffet is delicious and fresh, just limited on the selection of sides and dessert for picky eaters. The ambience and live band compliments the restaurant. The service is on point and the staff work well together for great service. Have no complaints in any area on this restaurant! Its phenomenal and would recommend it for almost any occasion as you will see groups, families, couples and parties all enjoying themselves."

  • "The food and service was great. We went on a sunday which say on theeebsite kids 12 and under are free. However we were charged for our 5 year and 9 years olds meals. I had bought a groupon for my spouse and I used. However we were not told that we would have to pay for the kids."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Again, impressed by this restaurant. Although it is a higher $$ place than you run of the mill restaurant (Approximately 200$ for 2 guests with cocktails and wine), the food is well prepared and the service was excellent. I've eaten many times in Churrascaria's in Brasil (obviously at much lower costs) and this restaurant follows tradition in preparation, cooking (Brasilia BBQ) and tastes. The background music and live entertainment is not overpowering and yields a pleasant dining experience. My "Very Good" rating instead of excellent was based on the limited wine list, although enough wines are listed for most pallets and wallets, the selection was limited. Will visit again."
