Tento Churrascaria .. Jacksonville Beach

Took my daughter and husband there for her birthday this past weekend... What a mistake! She heard good things about the restaurant and wanted to try it for this special occasion.
Nothing was horrible, but at best mediocre. Quantity was there, but I cannot say much for the quality.
Do yourself a favor and eat elsewhere.

    We went a couple of months ago and I have to agree. Nothing was horrible but besides the black beans there wasn't much that was fantastic.
    Very middle of the road.

      Yep :(
      We went last night. While I did love everything, the price just wasn't worth it. If i was maybe $20-25 per person that would make it better. We didn't even have wine or cocktails or dessert and it was still $100 with tip for two people. We could've gone French and had 2-3 courses with wine for that. Enjoyable but won't go again.

        It's not the best churrascaria I've ever been to but it certainly isn't the worst. We don't have Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao here so it's better than nothing.

          I will not be back. Much rather have an enjoyable experience elsewhere.

            We enjoyed the food, but the service was terrible. I think that since we were a party of 8, the waitress figured she'd tack on the 15% and then ignore us.
