Further Information

Brazilian churrascaria are grillhouses serving traditional Brazilian barbecued meats, usually rotisserie-grilled and served to diners by passing passaderos, Brazilian waiters who expertly cook, carve and dish up meats direct from the skewer. Diners at the Carnivore chain of Brazilian restaurants have been enjoying this Brazilian culinary experience in various spots across the city. Carnivore’s CHIJMES outlet commands a prime location in the historic CHIJMES building complex. Formerly a Catholic convent, this building along Singapore’s Victoria Street is now home to a decidedly decadent way of enjoying barbecued meats.

But that’s not all that’s on offer at Carnivore CHIJMES. Diners can also help themselves to an array of salads and sides to help the mouth-watering beef, pork, chicken and lamb cuts to slide down easily. And while Carnivore CHIJMES keeps focused on serving authentic Brazilian cuisine, we can’t help but comment on the location and decor of this particularly Singaporean churrascaria. Muted ebony and oak fittings combine with beautifully lit dining areas to create an enticing atmosphere. Carnivore CHIJMES features an al fresco section where you can enjoy Brazilian cuisine while taking in a view of the gorgeous CHIJMES building along Victoria Street.

Service and staff were awesome! My first experience and I was treating my gf to her first birthday surprise dinner. She loved it too! The buffet needs some improvement though. It was not tht appetizing but the meats are amazingly good. Will definitely come again!

The waiters are really friendly and attentive which make the services good. The food is great and I was lucky to get to try their cheese bread which is chewy and yummy especially when it was being served warm. This place is awesome for meat lovers and not forgetting it has a nice ambience.

Service are good and the food is great. The ambience was nice too as it's not so noisy and conversation can be carry out without needing to shout. What I liked was their cheese bread ..it's chewy and yummy. Great for friends gathering and who love meat alot.

The food was great including their salad and fruits. The only thing that we did not like during our visit was some of their pasta. But overall, the experience was really great because of their great service. :)

Carnivore Brazilian Churrascaria at Chijmes was a great night. The quality of food was fantastic. The meat was flavorsome and tender. The accompanying salad bar had a wide variety of sides of complimentary dishes. We had three children with us which would normally make the night out quite expensive, however children under 5 years old were free and older children less than half price. This make the night quite inexpensive. The service was professional and efficient.

Good eating experience. My friend's first time and he enjoyed it. Good selection of meat. Having more fans outside would help though. Was very humid at night. Waiters could be more attentive to topping up of water. There were very few patrons at the time i went. Yet the wait staff weren't attentive to things like that.

Definitely 2 thumbs up and highly recommended. Non-stop pouring of steak .. definitely will come back again given a chance. I just wish that they put back the buffet promo they have during lunch time, where it used to be in Carnivore Marina Square.

Couldn't tell the waiters apart from the customers. No uniform and no name tags. There is no happy hour on the drinks, although one pint is not too expensive Wine is very very expensive, which is a waste because it would complement the meat much better. We ended up not having wine but beer. Lessens the experience. Finally, seasoning for the meat did not penetrate hence the outer part was very salty but the meat itself bland. All in all, a rather mediocre experience for the price.

Can;t complain about the attention from the wait staff or the ambience. Food quality was good. However, it appeared that due to the low number of patrons that evening, one serving was about par for each of the items save the dessert [grilled pineapple -yummy]. But to be fair, they did get us some cuts we requested at the last order.

Heaven for carnivores. Try every meat they serve, It is hard to pick out a favourite. Chicken heart would be a novelty for most. Salads and dessert could be better. But I was there for meat and I was satisfied.

Well, I wanted meat and I got meat! Enough of it. I would have preferred to see more beef, but I guess you have to stay long enough to take a couple of rounds. The rest is good too. Nice ambience, we had a good company dinner..

Carnivore is nice way to get enough Food for all. Place is really nice, and Chijmes is best place to spend some time after eating too. Food could be even more Brasilian or American quality like Beef best paras too. Anyway positive and not expensive.

It was indeed a carnivorous dinner, had quite a handful of different meat. But the white meat are a little too dry to my liking. the bar counter food wasn't really good, spaghetti was overcooked and dry, smoked salmon abit too salty. Staff were friendly, overall I would only go again if I miss the beef

Too expensive for the amount of "good" meat. No cheese balls severed anymore.The wine is far too expensive and let alone the still water I have been coming there for the past 5 years and every time I need to ask for the "good" meat. As they know me and my family are beef lovers. We managed to only taste one time the rump steak, while chicken, sausages and ham were sufficiently served. There are a lot more restaurants in Singapore that serve a good rump steak or sirloin for a more affordable price. With 5 persons spending over 500SGD for just some chicken, ham and sausages is too much.

Overall is good but should hav more selection at the salad bar and dessert. Requested if there's any dessert to be birthday cake and the staff manage to get us one even though there's no dessert available on their menu. Great service!

The food was fantastic especially the beef steak. My wife and I love it. We definitely will go back again. If you are a big eater you should go there for buffet dinner. Thumbs Up

Very enjoyable evening. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the meat as you would expect was very good...delicious! My only observation was they should have the condiments (mustards etc) out on the buffet rather than having to ask.

Restaurant held the table for us, even though we were caught in a jam due to an accident on highway. Very good service and food is good. Good variety of meat but sides or appetizer station can be better.

Excellent food and service! Will definitely introduce the restaurant to my friends and visit again. The outside sitting area can get quite hot hence maybe something can be done to help alleviate the heat for clients sitting outside?

Took a while to be served but after that the meat came thick and fast. Not mind-blowing but still pretty decent. A good selection of sides/salads. Slightly more expensive than I expected but I would still back - once I've eventually digested all that protein...

Food was good. Staff was attentive. And the salad bar wasn't that bad either. If you love meat, this is the place to go. Can be a bit too much for some so make sure you visit the salad bar to offset the meat.

We arrived at "Carnivore" in very early evening. So, we can enjoy terrace table two hours without any frustrations. My guests enjoyed good taste meets. It was great dinner.

With a historical touch to the warm, brightly lit ambience, experience at the CHIJMES branch of Carnivore is made even more pleasurable by the friendly staff and top-notch food.

The food was generally great especially for those enjoy eating red meat. Their mutton was succulent and I would strongly recommend that, their various types of sausages and its pineapple. The ambience was average and salad choices were a little limited.

Poor selection of cold cuts/salats and very slow serving! Have been here before when l have been to SG but it was a big dissapointment this time, the upgrading of the area is not reflected in the restaurant. The meat was ok but the overall experience will not take me back again, sry!
