Friday Night in downtown Vancouver! Recorded Nov 12, 2021. In this video GUTOM EATS at RIO Brazilian Steakhouse Dinner. This location in the West End at Denman and Pendrell St is very close to the famous English Bay beach, and Stanley Park.
Rio Brazilian Steakhouse is a popular restaurant known for ALL YOU CAN EAT. Brazilian style meats, with sides and salad. They are open mostly for Dinner but have Lunch on the weekend. Call ahead to reserve. Fun fact: A long time ago the previous business here was a AYCE sushi restaurant.

Saturday and Sunday
12PM – 3:30PM
5:30PM – 10PM
The restaurant has lots of seating and is very spacious. They even have a patio for the summer.
QR Code Menu at the table. The buffet spread has been removed during pandemic, but you can still order salads and sides, ALL YOU CAN EAT. The selection of salads and sides are served in bowls and are quite generous and a variety to choose from.
The sides are nice but the MAIN attraction at Rio are the MEATS! The ALL YOU CAN EAT menu is called THE RODIZIO and features 11 MEATS. The server comes to your table to slice the meat in front of you!
Rio has a card system for All You Can Eat diners. The servers will keep bringing out food during the meal but you can stop the flow of food depending on the side of the card facing up: Green Card for more food, or Red Card for no more food.
On your table: Tongs for grabbing the sliced meats from the server. A small plate for any bones or scraps, and a big plate for all your food.
THE RODIZIO $42.50 DINNER
ALL YOU CAN EAT. For this dinner we were told that there would be 11 main meat dishes! Gutom Tip: Pace yourself!
The sides and salad are served first! They are well made and nicely presented. Some sides are authentic Brazilian dishes. Don’t make the mistake of eating too much appetizer before the main course!
Some sides and salads you will find:
Crispy French Fries
Tomatoes, onions, salsa, cilantro, vinaigrette.
Toasted cassava flour.
Feijoada Brazilian black bean stew
Kale and Apple Salad

$$-$$$ FAIR PRICE. For the amount of food, and meats you’re getting, the price for one person is fair. Party of 2 expect around $100 with drinks, tax, tip.
GOOD! Some meats are more salty than others but overall good. Some meats are not strongly flavoured but cooked well, moist/tender. Least favorite was the ribs which were a little hard on the top. Overall, the sides and salads are delicious. Surprisingly, the fries were good.
GOOD! Servers are friendly and helpful. The food came from the kitchen at a good speed except for the beef brisket which appeared near the end of the meal. There is also a 2 hour seating time limit, but if it’s not busy they don’t enforce it.
Overall, VERY SATISFIED. Awesome selection of meats and sides with authentic Brazilian dishes. Good service and entertaining dining experience.
