Amazing atmosphere and the food was delicious. The side we're amazing too. We didn't get a variety of meats, some cuts we're coming out more than once. Which was a shame as some of those were cuts I didn't prefer.

The safety and distancing measures in place are very good. We felt very safe throughout our visit.
The quality of the food was amazing and it was delicious. The gammon and lamb in particular were outstanding.
All staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
The drinks were a bit overpriced but other than that it was great value.
The only issue we had was there was a family with children who were allowing the children to be very noisy and they were running around and in and out of the restaurant which, especially under the current circumstances, wasn’t safe.
Will definitely visit again.
Highly recommended.

You added the tip on to the bill at the end before asking, I know it says ask to remove but people will feel uncomfortable to ask for it be done. The tip should be added on when they go and pay, give people an option before it’s on the bill.

The staff here were attentive and friendly, but the masks made some inaudible. We were pleasantly surprised that the salad bar was open.

The main concern was the rare meats that were served at the tables. Only one person in our party enjoyed this. Sausages, fillets of beef and chicken were cooked well, but other cuts of beef and lamb were almost inedible once the first slide from the skewer was served.

I would not choose to go again because of this and the high prices of food and drinks.

Meat overcooked despite asking for rare multiple times and menu specifying it’s cooked to your liking. Waited 25 minutes before anyone even offered us meat and Then at least 10-15 minutes between each serving, one piece per person.
Pineapple had no cinnamon as specified online and was cold.
We were not given fries like all the other tables on arrival and had to ask for them after 45 minutes of waiting.
Salad bar quality was good but missing a lot of options. Vegetarian pasta was not good. Bland and tasteless.

Went here for a lunch time with wife and daughter, greeted with a smile and shown to table straight away, staff were attentive and explained how things work wrt red & green disc. Food was excellent and meat cooked to perfection, even during these difficult times the buffet bar is serviced by staff and you ask for whatever you want, again food is fresh and plentiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes the Brazilian style.

Bit of a disappointment. Although the food was tasty and the staff worked hard to please, the place didn’t feel COVID-safe as the queue to the salad bar was fairly congested and customers had to walk between other diners. Very noisy and the whole experienced felt like an overpriced gimmick. Only recommended for those who can eat their own body weight in meat.

Food & service was great. However I was disappointed that the government "Eat out to help out" scheme discount was not applied despite being advertised on your website. We came on 31/08/20 which was the last day the scheme was in place. When i mentioned the £40 discount (4 of us dining) has not been included, i was told it could not be applied to the bill. Dont say one thing on website and then not do it. Other than feeling mislead we all had a lovely evening.

Wasn't very happy with the fact that nobody asked us how we wanted our meat to be cooked, I missed out on a few occasions as they came out still quite rare I much prefer it well done, in the past when we have came we've been asked. Having said that I do think it's a beautiful place to dine at and that standards are much higher when the eat out to help scheme is finished.

Estabulo is meat eating heaven and the salad is like no other. We love coming here and although a little pricey you can definitely justify it for a treat! Staff are so courteous and friendly you really feel welcome. Thanks!
