Much more than a rodizio

Illustration of man with meat skewer

It has never just been about the quality and variety of our meats.

Drinks

Nor the buffet and the caipirinhas. Chimarrão has always been about so much more than a rodizio. It's about sharing and companionship. The company we keep around the table and the company we keep for those around the table. Today, as always.

Cocktail

YES, AS USUAL!

The thing is: it wasn't by accident that we opened the first true Brazilian Rodizio in Portugal in 1987. And it certainly wasn’t by accident that we called it Chimarrão.

Chimarrão comes from an ancient gaucho tradition, inherited from the indigenous people, and refers to a hot drink made from yerba mate, served in a peculiar container. According to tradition, the chimarrão drink is meant to be shared, in a relaxing ritual called "Roda de Mate".

Tradition says that chimarrão is for sharing

Ham rodizio

And if this was what inspired the traditional Brazilian Rodizio, later it was the traditional Brazilian Rodizio that inspired our founder. For its unique quality and variety of meat. For the care with which the meat was prepared and grilled. For the rigour with which the meat was cut and served. And for the immense variety of delicious side dishes that accompanied it.And it so remains!

When we say that Chimarrão is much more than a rodizio, it's also because we really want you to try all our meats before repeating the ones you like best.
