Although it was windy outside! The service was great! They gave hot water bottles! Which was a lovely touch!
The server was so nice! Forgot her name! From Hungary I think!
Food was fab and so was the wine :)
Defo would love to come back once indoors open!

Listen the service was awesome

It was chilly so they gave me the nicest fluffy water bottle

The meats just kept coming like they didn’t skimp on it! It was delicious, and comfy

They gave me a coffee on the house as well like I was so happy

Had an amazing time and ate till our bellies were content, the only thing I would say is that the price for the buffet on open table is not accurate, it is more expensive at the restaurant.

My wife is Brazilian so we have been to many of these type of restaurants where meat is brought to your table and carved onto your plate, this was the worst we have been to. I had to go and speak with the waiters to bring the meat skewers to our table and provide the same level of service being enjoyed by those seated directly outside the restaurant, we had been seated on a terrace area about 30 metres from the restaurant. Some of the chicken was ok but when they brought picanha that was raw on the inside at the first cut we couldn’t believe it. I’m not just talking about a little bit of red in the middle, this was uncooked! I heard the waiter say to the next table it’s a ‘little bit blue’, hey have also inflated their prices from the online menu - sure they’ll say the prices were on the menu on the table but having travelled there we were hardly going to go home. This is definitely one to avoid, it’s saying something when the best food we ate were the fries and the garlic bread.

The food was okay. Probably a little pricey for what it is. Waiters were very nice but were going a bit too fast. There is plenty of outside seating but no heating and very little light (we were there for dinner). Overall the meat was decent but at that price we were expecting a better bang for our buck.

Dining at Charro De Rio was a great experience and I will definitely be back to introduce more people to this gem! The all you can eat bbq and salad transported me on holiday despite sitting outside in 10 degree weather. Supplied with water bottles and great drinks it was an all round fantastic experience.

Nice decor, unfortunately was freezing and I know it’s outside sitting due to restrictions but definitely some outdoor heaters or blankets would help.

£35 for all you can eat.. not sure it’s fair price as it came only 3 times steak and after that is always chicken... it’s a Brazilian meat place, more meat varieties apart from chicken would be essential, £35 for mainly chicken I’d go to Nando’s.

Staff friendly, although management doesn’t allow to take away the food you have in your plate, which means food waste. But the gentleman that served us gave us a little box and was nice.

Lovely al fresco dining under current restrictions. Food was very tasty and we had a server come by every few minutes brining around a new meat to try. If anything -too much food, so go hungry! :-)

Food till you burst. Ask for the best cuts rather than taking what comes out. Nice on the pavement in spring. Wines were good too.

This is a great place for hungry carnivores. It's an all you can eat menu, with lots of different skewers of meat coming around to sample. The meat was excellent and I had the best chicken thighs I have tasted in a long while. The salads were rather basic and uninspired. The fish option did not appeal and requires booking in advance. The vegetarian consists of the salad and vegetables so I was pleased not to have chosen that. There were a few birthdays and lots of vigorous singing with special birthday hats and desert. It was not a relaxing atmosphere - you are interrupted repeatedly with offers to try different types of meat and it added a rushed quality to the meal. However, if you love your meat, this is an incredible steak house.

I've had mediocre experiences with these types of places before but I felt as though this had quite an emphasis on the quality of food. They were busy but motivated, it was very well done.

Ohad and his team were amazing to us on Monday evening - the service was impeccable and the food delicous - I can't recommend this restaurant enough. My mum went there yesterday and loved it and had the best time.
We can't wait to return

For the first time since lockdown began, I have truly enjoyed eating out.

The food was delicious, the wine list well chosen, the service excellent and the tables socially distanced. I was able to relax and enjoy restaurant dining in a way that I took for granted pre-Covid and which I had though impossible at this time.

A huge thank you to all the staff at Charro de Rio, Belsize Park for a wonderful meal.

The location is outstanding, being a 10 minute walk from the Heath. The food was outstanding, on par if not better than what we had in Brazil. The outdoor seating was a nice touch.

The food was generally good but the wagu beef was very underdone and tough. Other cuts were good and salads very nice. Not sure it was wagu to be honest. Friendly staff and decent service. Nice atmosphere with the Belsize Streetery.

I felt very rushed. No sooner did we sit down, the menu was explained in a great rush and food started to come so rapidly that it was not relaxed or enjoyable.
Shame as nice concept. Salads were not dressed!

If you want an unlimited reasonably priced meal with a great choice of cuts then this is for you. It’s like a mobile buffet which keeps coming. The dining room is great and the staff friendly. Bear in mind that this is not a specialist steak house - so if you have coming expecting a prime rib eye then you’re in the wrong place.
