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.

    Food was good & service but the prices are very inflated, used to be reasonable but think £150 for 1 adult & 2 teens is a bit steep!

    Service was mediocre at best. They brought out sirloin steak, garlic bread and sausages out 3 times. Finally brought out fillet steak which was far over cooked and don’t get me started on the charcoaled lamb. The only decent thing was the salad bar but for over £120 with a few drinks thrown in, for me it wasn’t value for money.

    This was booked for my husband’s birthday (I did put this is when asked at the time of booking online) we arrived early and was seated, first thought was I hope no one comes next to us….tables too close together. Explained by the hostess how our meal would be served (first time we’ve been). Next came someone else to take our drinks and then asked again if we’d been before and then started to explain how our meal would be served. Went off to the amazing salad bar, came back to the table and part of our drinks order to arrive to be asked again if we’d been before blah blah (3 times by 3 different people) ended up having to ask for the remaining drinks. Food was lovely although we had to ask for some more lamb as it came out once but everything else came out 3/4 times. Ordered pudding and a candle (unlit) came in my pudding when it wasn’t my birthday nor did they ask but what was the point in an unlit candle? As for the bill. We already knew what the cost was going to be so I have no comment on the cost although my husband enjoyed it and has been wanting to go for a few years, for me personally it wasn’t worth what I paid. I am not a big eater (hence the reason for putting it off) and the salad bar would of been enough for me. The constant asking if we’d been before annoyed me, leave it to the person who has first contact with the customer and the candle bit was absolutely pointless. Other people there were having staff singing happy birthday to them. The tables were too close together to the point where the server at the table next to us caught one of our plates which then sent everything further up the table that wasn’t big enough. Overall thought…I won’t be recommending it nor rushing back.

    Me and my boyfriend went here and cause we was younger than most people there we wasn’t looked after/treated like the others. We felt as though we was shoved in the corner and wasn’t treated correctly. Some of the staff were really mardy and rude The food was average, far to expensive for what it is.

    In 20mins we was offered one meat... we was seated just after 3pm and the service was good up until about 3.45 and the service for meat was extremely slow and disappointing, i had even asked the waitress if there was more food coming out just before 4pm and she said yes its just on the grill being made well done for you - we gave up waiting and called for the bill to then be offered a plate of meat. It seemed as it got closer to 4pm to change to the dinner service the service was depleted. Not acceptable for the amount you pay per person. Very disappointing.

    Another fantastic evening. Once again the food and service were amazing. Only let down (although it was only minor) no Sagres beer (again, 2nd time in a row) however the Estabulo beer is a suitable alternative. Definitely recommend. Already looking forward to the next visit.

    When we arrived we were asked how we liked our meat. We had a "well done" card displayed on our table and yet ALL the cuts of meat brought to the table had blood visible and I don't mean "rare" it was liquid. Apart from the belly pork which was very nice

    Found online booking easy and efficient. Unfortunately that’s as efficient as my evening became. The food when it arrived at the table was excellent but service including one particularly rude and aggressive meat server was very poor. My partner requested meat well done which meant that each time they passed round the tables they passed us by. I asked which meat would be served so I could wait for it, rather than take a piece of things I wouldn’t eat to avoid waste, and needed up waiting an hour for a piece of chicken. There was one waitress whose name I am sadly unable to recall, but was the only member of the team that seemed to be good at their job. Salad bar and selection excellent. Overall value was reasonable for a city centre location but won’t be going back

We didn’t get to try everything on the menu as it wasn’t brought round and we wasn’t made aware if they had ran out or if they just wasn’t serving it! For a restaurant with a reputation and high standards you wouldn’t expect such poor service. I used to attend here frequently with my family but safe to say won’t be returning as it’s not worth the money to be sat around waiting! Very disappointed!

    Service was a little slow and had to ask if the meat was coming round after we had already finished our salad plates. Would have been nice to have eaten it with the meat! The salad bar was okay but had to ask for certain things to be refilled. We were celebrating my child's 13 birthday which they knew about and still got charged 2 adults meals when both my children were under 13 years. Didn't notice until I got home as my son wasn't feeling well and we rushed out to get him home.

    Shristi Yadav who is the waiting staff, she went above and beyond in ensuring we had a good visiting experience. At times the meats offered were extremely rare instead of medium as I asked, shristi straight away told the staff to changed it and after 3 attempts everything was great, my son who came with me has autism and even with this he was very comfortable and happy with how his experience went. It was my second time coming and I'd of course come back again ☺️

    Began by putting us on a tiny table away from the rest of the restaurant. Hostess explained it was because of large groups meaning there wasn’t many tables free (despite us booking for 19:30). Hostess managed to move us to a more suitable table which was very much appreciated. Service was very poor - received two pieces of meat in first 25 minutes. It did eventually pick up however once the large 18 person party next to us had paid, they proceeded to loiter above our table taking photos and saying goodbye for around 15 minutes, blocking any of the servers from seeing if we wanted any more meat. Staff should have requested that the party move into the bar area to say goodbyes and have photos, especially in a environment where servers being able to see a table is of utmost importance to the customer experience. We ordered two drinks to the table, first a pint of Sagres which took 20 minutes to arrive due to a “printing error” at the bar and the second a Glass of Lemonade which never arrived but was included on the bill. The meat itself was lovely when we were able to get some served however the salad bar was quite disappointing with sides not being refilled (potatoes which were supposed to be hot were stone cold) and brown lettuce suggesting it had been left out too long. For £50 a head, we walked out feeling slightly ripped off, and the only reason we agreed to pay the optional service charge was due to the helpfulness of the hostess who helped us move tables.

    Chips came ages after the start of the experience and the waiter did not go around the tables and offer meats to all of the party even though our cards were on green and we indicated we all wanted the meat.

    Lovely experience and the food tasted great. Some of our table felt the meat was too rare. (It was bloody when they’d asked for medium-well done).

    As a large table we kept getting avoided, come here regularly and never get that service, out of the 2 hours we was there maybe 4 times someone come with meat, we waited 50 mins for 4 portions of chips. 30 mins for drinks, it wasn’t busy so no need for it we was thrown to the back and avoided

    Excellent food as always, a relatively quiet afternoon but the service provided was excellent. A special mention to Athena who was super attentive without being "in your face". Altogether a lovely afternoon celebrating my partners birthday.
