Brazilian Steakhouse

Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill honour the Brazilian Gaúcho’s traditional method of cooking. This involves taking the most delicious and flavoursome cuts of meat, which are then skewered and cooked slowly on open flames.
This method of cooking also means that all the meat served to you fresh at your table, straight from the grill. You can eat as much or as little as you like, and we have a large selection of meats on offer, so you can stick to what you know or try something a little bit different!
We also have a selection of Vegetarian, Halal and Fish dishes on offer and the salad bar which is the perfect start to your meal, and accompanies our entire menu perfectly as little palate cleansers between each skewer that reaches your table.

    We seemed to only recieve fatty scraps of meat. We were told it would be served medium rare, however the majority of the meat was well done (including the fillet steak). All the meat was cold as well. Definitely wouldn't recommend after our experience.

    We have eaten at other Estabulos and always been fantastic however the experience at Darlington was quite the opposite,the meat was inedible (apart from the lamb)and that's when they came and actually offered you some ,I had to ask if we could get some and all of a sudden we had 5 different waiters within seconds of each other,which then was too much my partner was nearly sick when she saw what resemble a animal abscess in her meat at that point we decided enough was enough,we did tell the cashier that we were extremely disappointed and he kindly refunded one of our meals which we thanked him for has he handled the situation calmy and professionally ,on reflection we basically got salad fries and halloumi for 2 for £29.99 ,this has left us unsure has to wether we would want to eat in any of there chains again has for the price you expect good quality food nice dining experience which on this occasion was far from it top and bottom the meat was not upto our expectations from when we've dined at their Beverley and Wakefield restaurants

    We travel from Hartlepool to estabulo regularly for date nights - we tried Rio’s in Middlesbrough as this is closer to us. Rio’s was not a patch on estabulo!! Staff in estabulo are polite, pleasant, always smiling and can not do enough for you. As soon as we finished our drinks they are straight over to us to bring us more. Always present if we need something extra. Salad part of the restaurant always kept clean and fresh with staff cleaning around the area. Meat is delicious (only downfall is that I like mine well done and sometimes this gets forgotten) Love estabulo and will continue to recommend!

    We cannot fault this restaurant so far. We found the restaurant on the internet and we have now visited 3 times in 2 months, it’s our current favourite. The salad bar always seems nice and fresh, but the meats served at your table are delicious. The beef meats are served medium rare and melt in your mouth. The belly pork and lamb also taste great, but my personal favourite is the gammon, it tastes gorgeous. The price is so very reasonable and the food is well worth the price, i’d recommend for everyone to visit thus restaurant. It’s a lovely smart restaurant with spotless bathroom facilities. The staff are always polite and welcoming and don’t hover over you while you are eating, but are very attentive when you need their assistance.

    It was my first experience here. The servers where very helpful and friendly with a special mention to Tom. There is lots of choice, the food was fresh and hot. You acn request some products to come back if you like it. There is a salad bar, you can request a clean plate and nothing seems to much.
