        You said: "Thinking of trying these..."

        I said: "No need."

        How much more info do you want? I'm trying to save you some significant money here.

          Hey Josh, for those posters who may not know you or your background, it may be helpful to desiminate a little detail as to why your attempting to save the OP some time and $$. Just a suggestion and my $.02.

            No need.

            Just playing.

            I would skip them too, although I haven't been to the new Cafe Sevilla for food.

            Anyone been since they dropped a lot of money on the new place?

            How does it stack up to the places in Sevilla, Spain?

            Does it make a trip to Spain obsolete?

                Thanks for giving me a good laugh.

        2. They are interesting, but neither one would get recommended if you asked the best places to eat in San Diego or even the Gaslamp.

          Food isn't bad, just unremarkable. Rei do Gado is okay as a churrascaria, but not as good as Fogo de Chao in general. I eat there more at lunch than dinner because I have some clients who like it. I actually enjoy their food and the experience, but not the kind of place that people on Chow would suggest.

          Cafe Sevilla's food is really unremarkable, but it can be fun later as a club.

            Agree re: Rei do Gado being decent but not fantastic. Have eaten at Porcao and Carretao many times in Rio, which is much better. Personally, I prefer prato feito style Brazilian-- which does not fill me up as much as an 'all you can eat' churrascaria--and would recommend Brazil by the Bay in Point Loma. Not a fancy place, but tastey dishes that is patronized primarily by Brazilians.....not ruling out Rei do Gado for a business function, but it's not a regular place on my radar either.
