This restaurant doesn't hold back on serving the quality meats. The quality really is first class and the service was great, swift, polite and helpful

The decor is very smart and clean.

Love meat then this is heaven for you!
Succulent, tasty and juicy.

Would recommend!

meat service was slow, poor selection of meats which did not equate to what was indicated as available on menu online, salads poorly stocked so little or none left of some of them, floor staff were friendly but overall a really disappointing experience for our party of 6 and certainly didn't feel as though the bill warranted the food or experience - sorry!

great food, great service!
A very relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy eating great food while having a conversation. You can take your time and enjoy all sorts of meat as the guys come around with one delicious spit after another.
I very much recommend it!

The food was delicious but service was very slow and took ages to start serving the meat.
Also they should put more options of salads, cheese, rice, fruits,etc like all the Brazilian Churrascarias.

Delicious food - first cut of meat was a bit tough, but everything else was delicious. Some of the most succulent, juicy chicken I've ever eaten. Salads delicious, chips definitely home-made. We went before an event, so only had just over an hour. Suited in this case as the food comes pretty immediately, but when I go again I'll allow more time to linger over the different meats offered. I would definitely go back.

Great to see this type of place in Ireland at last. Plenty of token salads to choose from but it really is all about the meat. Quite a lot of time elapses between visits to your table but the meat is good quality. The menu gives the impression that there will be more cuts than were actually present however.

We had a group booking for 7 people for a meal after my graduation. It was absolutely amazing food and such an amazing atmosphere. The staff were fantastic and really engaging. Those caipirinhas were absolutely to die for and I am so grateful for the recommendation. Everyone enjoyed the meal so much that we all agreed that we hope to be back again. 100% would recommend to anyone!

The meat is very tasty even though it was hard to chew sometimes, but that depends on the animal part more than how it is cooked.
Absolutely suggested o try is the baked pineapple!

My partner and my two daughters and their husbands enjoyed a celebratory meal there recently. My partner and I had been there twice before and knew it would be a big hit with the younger ones. All in all it was a lovely evening but we felt that the floor staff was on the short side. The meats were a bit slow in coming and we had to ask for some that were missing and for the pineapple. I will be going again though.
