I was a little nervous because I didn't know how the buffet experience was going to be. I usually avoid buffets as I don't like the noise of people walking up and down all the time. However, I found that with the COVID restrictions where you select your own sides and they get brought to you, it's actually much more peaceful and enjoyable. I commend the staff as they were absolutely fantastic so left a large tip! The food was good; I particularly enjoyed the filled steak which was wonderfully done.
It's a fun place for a celebration, with an interesting twist on the usual dining experience as Brazilian-style BBQs sre not typically found in the UK. I would recommend !

Food missing from the salad menu including no ketchup and we waited a long time between different meats coming out as there were only 3 tables of people in. There must have been at least ten minutes between each one and we had to keep asking for sheets to get more from the salad bar. Not an enjoyable experience for my daughter's 11th birthday.

Food as always was delicious, I do think it is a bit pricey but enjoyed it. I don’t agree with adding a 10% tip I think this should be up to the guests. I know you can ask for it to be removed but who’s going to do that

Amazing meal, food was delicious, felt really clean and safe with them following all the necessary COVID rules. They even brought my husband a slice of cake with a candle in for his birthday, they were so thoughtful and the staff were all really friendly. Thank you for a great evening team Estabulo!

High price for a mid week dinner.
2 cocktails and a diet coke and the meal came to £78.00
In and out within an hour.
Staff were lovely and attentive.

Maybe OK on a weekend but too expensive for mid week.

Meat wasn’t as good as the first time we went. Staff are impeccable and speedy.
Mocktails have way too much ice in and not enough actual juice. Large glass filled with ice and maybe a small tumbler of juice, if that.
We’ll go again, give them the benefit of the doubt that this covid stuff isn’t making things difficult

Excellent food and service. Waiters were very attentive and asked if there was anything in particular we wanted to try. Everything arrived very promptly.
Only minor suggestion is that it would have been nice to have some sauces offered to accompany the meat.

Been twice in last couple weeks rushed out both times constantly asking if we are finished. Caught the manager telling waiter to clear our tables. Questioned bar person why he says manager trying to get more people through with restrictions.

So we paid for 1hr 45 min but were not in much more than 45 min!

Wont be going again

Firstly, great service in the current climate and in my opinion 'safe' seating with good change of use a 'tick-list' for sides and salads served to table.

Meat was constantly circulating with good choice and all very good but ranging from salty to very salty (especially the gammon). Would be 5* rather than 4* if not so much salt. I use salt on all quality cuts but not that much so back it off - meat needs to shine!!

Certainly, will go back!
