    Churrascaria barbecue

    Join us at XODÓ for a culinary carnival unlike any other in Cairo. Our Chef Guilherme will prepare and serve the finest churrasco – premium meat cuts and traditional Brazilian flavours – for a dazzling family-style fiesta Churrascaria barbecue by the Nile.

We carefully select our products day by day, and I personally handpick fresh produce. We source all that is local and, most importantly, what is in season.
