Brazilian Steakhouse
BRINGING THE TASTE OF BRAZIL TO YOU…
Estabulo Rodizios honour the Brazilian Gaúchos’ 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 allows the meats to be cooked to perfection; whilst maintaining all the unique characteristics of each cut of meat. Our menu features a fantastic range of all the finest cuts of meat, including some Brazilian delicacies!

This method of cooking also means that all the meat served to you fresh at your table, straight from the grill.

As well as our main menus, we also have a selection of Vegetarian, Vegan, Halal and Fish dishes on offer.

We are exceptionally proud of the fact that all of our food is locally sourced from the finest local suppliers, and we only use the highest quality ingredients.

Where this restaurant is situated it appears to offer an open bar arear to the public, personally we found where we were sat very noisy and rowdy. The food was fantastic yet again and we shall return however will await the other restaurant in Leeds to re open instead as its much quieter.

The food was very nice, as usual. The staff was not very attentive this time. We have had much friendlier waiters in the past. There was one waitress who had absolutely no smile in her face and staff seemed to be stressed. Not sure why this was the case on this occasion.

I have been before and had a positive time however this time the service was terrible and felt we didn’t get many meat options brought out and wasn’t offered any chips

Absolutely amazing experience from the warm atmosphere, the fabulous and amazing staff to the gorgeous food. We felt like we were royalty - we were treated fantastically, and I think that’s just the way everyone is treated. The service is outstanding - a perfect mix of professional and friendly. We will definitely go back!

I went here for my birthday and it was going well until I got home and was very ill and spent my birthday night in the bathroom. At the Wakefield branch when it is your birthday they sing and are all happy to serve you and here they were friendly but came across with very unhappy faces. I won’t be returned to any Estábulo as the pain I was in after visiting this branch was not worth any of it. Avoid!

I booked online for St Peters square and received a confirmation. Then arrived in the pouring rain only to find it closed. We walked into town after calling the Light restaurant to let them know we would be late and explained why. On arrival no apology was offered and the cramped surroundings were a long way from the place we originally thought we were booked into

Everything about this restaurant was lovely. The only negative was that the meat was not med-well done as promised. I found most of the meat overdone which is a crime in itself, which then meant if you didn’t eat it within 10 seconds it started to harden and took a lot of chewing!
A shame but this would put me off visiting in future.

We have been to Estabulo so many times, and it is one of our favourite restaurants in Leeds. However, on this occasion standards seem to have slipped.
The restaurant was very busy when we arrived. We ordered our drinks and 2 beers arrived quite quickly, but we had to remind the waiter about our wine. When he poured the wine he didn't ask us if we wanted to taste it, just plonked it into our glasses!
The salad bar was not as good as usual and there were no sweet potato fries as before.
We had to wait a while for any meat to come to our table and initially it was just sausage and chicken.
Eventually the beef and lamb started to be served and was delicious and plentiful.
I feel that Estabulo has become a victim of its own success which is a shame.

On the booking I stated it was my girlfriends birthday and requested them to sing happy birthday as I have seen them do this before but that didn’t happen, food was really nice and still got a full selection of meat for a Monday night which was good, good service overall.

Unfortunately we were served chips and then waited for meat to arrive. We eventually asked for some meat and eventually it turned up, but chips were cold. Meat was far too rare for 3 of us so we requested well done twice before we were offered any. Chicken came after we had all finished eating. We were celebrating a birthday and this restaurant had been recommended to us. We were left disappointed, service was very slow and disjointed

Enjoyed a relatively pleasant and relaxed evening with family. Staff friendly and accommodated our request for rarer cuts of meat.
The only negative was the number of birthdays that resulted in our conversations been interrupted due to the very noisy drumming and out of tune singing by staff. Hilarious but after the 7th time it starts to get annoying!

there was four of us, booked in at the estabulo, in the light in Leeds center.
on sunday the 15th sep
we were seated the closest to the kitchen entrance.
the waiters were flying out of the kitchen with the freshly cooked meats and totally going past us!
then coming back with the raw meat , asking us if we wanted some!
we had to keep trying to get there attention,to asking them to bring us some.
it was not a relaxing experience.

Having eaten at a Estabulo before we were disappointed with this experience. Everything was off the mark. Lack of servers meant that food was slow coming. Most of the meat was over cooked. Requested the fillet mignon, but never arrived. Requested rarer meat, never arrived. Requested more fries, never arrived. Then the till could not print a bill and this meant a further 20 minute delay at the end. First experience was very good, this frankly was an expensive chore.

By far the best restaurant i have been in a while
It was my husband birthday and i was scared to bring our little one as it was his first time in a restaurant but the staff were so lovely and polite made us feel right at home and the manager was great! The meat server a made sure they did not cut the meat near our son which was very thoughtful, would recommend to any one looking for a great restaurant to eat at. Food was delicious as well!
