    Not easy to find, got directions from a nearby hotel. Arrived at 13:30 and buffet items had been out for a long time. Bread stale, hot items luke warm. When meat was brought obvious we were served items that had been grilling for a long time. The pork loin, ribs, sausages were dried out and inedible. Carvers reluctant to serve higher value items (steak, lamb, etc). Had to repeatedly ask. Kept bringing not nice ribs nobody wanted, then carver's visits to table decreased. Had to order wine 3 times before it was brought even though mostly empty. Gave up waiting for the bill so collected it myself. Staff more concerned with going home than serving although advertised as open until 4pm for lunch.

    I think there needs to be a bigger selection in the Buffett area. Also the good needs to be topped up regularly.

    My partner and I had trouble with a booking for another restaurant so took a chance and booked a table at Rodizio Rico. Glad we made that choice, the staff were very friendly, apart from the fact they forgot I had ordered the vegetarian option, so had to wait an age before I could get someones attention. The food was great for him, not so good for me I found the bbq veg skewer just lacking something. Maybe an option for halloumi or some sort of spices putting on them would make it seem a bit more value for money. In all the place is great if you are a meat fan, but bland for us veggies

    Overall vvery good, the manager was excellent as were the servers. However, this is the 2nd occasion I have had of being served by the bartender and in on word 'rude' - really lets the other lovely people down.

    A little pricey but great for pre show food as there is no waiting around for the food to be cooked. Nice to experience a different style of service. They wait on your table with freshly cooked meat and you help yourself to salads from a great selection. Eat as much as you like.

    Plenty of meat - but if you don't like cold salad type stuff with it, then forget it.

    Went here with two others and overall had a good experience. Was a buffet style with meat brought to your table. Buffett was very good, meat was well marinated but far too salty and still my mouth feels very dry the next day. Waiters were friendly and the place soon got packed even for a Wednesday. Would recommend but won't be hurrying back - think it would be a good place or a large group to go

  • Loved the beef

    This was our first visit to rodizio rico and we will definitely be returning. The choice of meat is great, it was constantly coming round from sausage to pork to chicken wings & thights plus various cuts of beef which has to be the best beef I have tasted. I'm usually not a beef fan but it was delicious! There is also a help yourself salad cart and the mini cheese balls, potato salad and fresh baguette was nice. The restaurant is big and spacious. It is definately worth trying.

  • Where's the beef?

    Took my family here for a post-graduation meal and the men appreciated the carnivorous nature of the roving meat carvery. Especially the beef. It couldn't come around quick enough for my dad. I stuck to the chicken but there was lots of choice. Good sides bar and loved the Stilton. Wine mark-ups were a bit of a rip-off. More frequent beef carvings would score points too! Good night though.
