My review of Fogueira – can a pescatarian like myself eat at a Brazilian steakhouse restaurant? I sure was able to, with the salad bar from the buffet and ordering seafood items, I ended up loving my experience here.
With an already amazing menu, the restaurant has decided to add 5 more different types of meat cuts along with some delicious cocktails for the Brazilian Independence Day coming up on September 7. Be sure to head to the restaurant from September 7 – 9 for the celebrations and live entertainment!
The starters and salad buffet was great to go along with the protein cuts that is served table side. I couldn’t eat the various meats that came to the table so the buffet was a great way to keep myself busy while I waited for the seafood dish to come out of the kitchen.
The buffet consisted of hot and cold dishes which included croquettes, rice with vegetables, mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, and various salads like quinoa, sweet potatoes, and kale salad. These are only a few that I listed and I was also interested in the antipasta station that had various delicious olives, mushrooms, and pickled vegetables.
The seafood plate that I recieved had salmon, 3 large prawns, and 3 pieces of cod on top of a bed of mashed potatoes. The salmon was cooked beautifully and it was so juicy. The 3 prawns were grilled and it was wonderful. Finally, the pieces of cod were so tasty and the mashed potatoes went well with it.
The last items that came to the table were the pineapple with cinnamon, and a plate of small dessert bites. The pineapple was absolutely tasty and the cinnamon on it gave the pineapple an extra kick of sweetness.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 5/5.
I ordered the chefs seafood plate.
The service was wonderful from the moment we stepped off the elevator with the hostess greeting us with a warm smile.
The food and beverage manager, Andrea, was such a great host who kept us entertained and was great at giving us reasons why Fogueira is such an excellent restaurant.
Everytime my husband had his card turned over to the green side, different cuts of meat came to the table quickly. The servers were on top of their game making sure our drinks were refilled and dirty plates cleared.
The ambience of this restaurant was warm and inviting with dark colours all around. This restaurant is located on the 35th floor of the Ramada Hotel in the Jumeirah Beach residence area. The live entertainment was wonderful and they were singing in Spanish so it made it feel more authentic here.
