Welcome to Rio’s BBQ & Rodizio Restaurant! Your Rodizio experience begins with a visit to our gourmet buffet, featuring fresh vegetables, salads, Brazilian cheese bread, cured meats, continental cheeses and hot dishes, including our traditional “Feijoada” (bean stew with meat).

Once you are ready for the Brazilian barbecue (churrasco), you control the service with a small double-sided disc placed on your table. The green side signals the Chefs to bring out skewers of sizzling meats one by one, while the red side indicates you have finished. There is a sumptuous selection of meats and the beauty is you can enjoy them all at one set price (Some offerings may change).


You can choose from a variety of mouth-watering, freshly cooked meat and poultry slowly grilled and roasted on our BBQ. Our wide selection includes Picanha rump steak, lamb, pork, beef, marinated chicken, fish, BBQ’d pineapple and more!

Experience the authentic taste of the Brazilian Rodizio, right here on the Isle of Man. Rio’s BBQ & Rodizio Restaurant is located on Loch Promenade Douglas, the perfect location for a meal out. Offering a romantic setting for date night, a fun vibe for friends and family, alternatively, our spacious restaurant is the perfect setting for private hire too. We’ve got you covered!

Whatever the occasion, we’ll make it a celebration to remember.

    Good quality welcome and food. Decor and ambience modern, clean, welcoming and Brazilian. Salad, starters and sides buffet a healthy mix of some British standards (e.g. potato salad, corn on the cob) but amid the chef's special preparations of good flavour and variety. Main provision is then a supply of a wide range of freshly cooked and flavoured meats, typed at the end with warm, sweet cinnamon covered pineapple. An excellent experience week with a visit. I should say that fish and vegetarian options are available, not just the steak and chicken which is otherwise core to their menu.

    Really delicious food. Especially the beans and the beef rib. All the staff were fantastic especially Chris and the patient service staff. We will be back.

    Booked a table for 12 with no problem or prepayment online. Very good food, the buffet was to die for and the meats were amazing. I do wish there was a non spicy option as a couple of our party were unable to eat those but other than that the meal was lovely. A top up of water on the table would have been appreciated or a second drinks order. Ambiance was great and as the restaurant heated up they turned the air con on which was greatly appreciated.

    Loved Rios. Ate till I couldn't move. Friendly staff. We had the all-you-can eat option. Plenty of meat. Really enjoyed it. Would have loved some dessert options though. Great food. Great service.

    Group of 5 of us went on 24/9/22 Staff was friendly upon arrival. The buffet section was awful items such as the bartered fish were cold for some reason then they came round with different meats the sausage was full of grizzle the lamb was undercooked the chilli beef & the garlic beef was like old rubber & the gammon was so undercooked it was inedible. the chicken was crispy on outside & red in middle in other words it had been cooked too quickly. We brought all these points up to the waiter however no management or chefs came out to see us to attempt to come up with a solution instead we was just given dirty looks when leaving. we paid over £200 for basically a few items off the buffet due to the meats being so poorly cooked it’s a shame as we was all looking forward to this place.
