Brazilian Steakhouse brand RIO is venturing north of the border for the first time with a venue in Scotland.

Located in Edinburgh in the Assembly Rooms on George Street in a former Jamie’s Italian site it will be the brand's 8th​ location since it was established.

The 150-cover restaurant will serve RIO's non-stop meats menu, where cuts of meat are continuously carved at the table in a traditional Rodizio style, as well as have an unlimited salad bar and a central sushi bar.

“We are thrilled to announce that RIO Brazilian Steakhouse will be opening in Scotland for the first time early next year," says co-owner Rodrigo Grassi.

"A milestone moment for us, we can’t wait to bring the delicious South American flavours to Edinburgh – one of the UK’s most exciting foodie cities – and look forward to introducing our unique offerings to the Scottish market.”

Founded in Jesmond in November 2019, the Edinburgh site adds to its current locations in Jesmond, Newcastle’s Quayside, Middlesbrough, Durham City Centre, Warrington, Chester and York.
