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.

Felt like our table was plonked in the entrance of restaurant, booked in advance so felt unfair. Too many people passing by constantly. Very slow service waited half an hour for a glass of water . Expected better won’t be returning fazenZa is a lot better!

Amazing as per usual great services by one of the male servers and the meat guys, only criticism is a few bit we ordered came late or didn’t come at all and with the new post COVID-19 measures you should have a better way of sending people to the salad bar as people who arrived after us were going up first which ment we was rushing to clear the table by or allotted time

Excellent setting and food. The only slight issue we had was service was a little hectic - likely due to long long since they reopened due to covid - and not all meats on the menu were offered - only gammon, various cuts of beef and sausage - no chicken or lamb. But what we did have was delicious.

Really good food quality. Service dropped towards the end as we were sat far away from kitchen. Another customer played a loud video on his phone for a few mins at one point. Staff walked past but didn’t ask him to turn it off or down.

There wasn’t much variety in food we were offered 2 choices of beef the rest was chicken, we weren’t informed that we were able to go back to the salad bar until we went to pay, really disappointed on this occasion

This was our first time dinning out since lockdown, we were not disappointed. We have come here many times before lockdown so we were very unsure what to expect. It was fabulous. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Very organised and me and my family felt very safe. There is now a lovely seating area outside the restaurant which once we had finished our meal we went and sat and had drinks.

Been to the other estabulo in Leeds 4 times and really enjoyed it. Went to this one in the light and our booking was at 9.30pm which was the only available time unfortunately due to the times we are in. (fair enough) but then was rushed around to be told they closed at 10pm and felt very rushed ordered 2 drinks when we got there luckily because after that we was never asked if we wanted another drink and couldn't get one it felt as though they just wanted to rush us off started cleaning all the tables and just left us to it very dissapointing as the other one couldn't do enough for us. There was one guy serving at the salad bar though who was lovely and very professional the only good thing I can say about the whole evening. Expensive to pay for the crap service we received

This was our first visit and the food was very tasty. I was unimpressed with the waiting staff. They were wearing face masks, but not wearing correctly. Wearing them over their chin and not over their moth and nose is not the correct way. Either wear them or don't. They also kept touching them to move the about. Not good.

I normally go either fazenda or the other Estabulo on St. Peter’s square and for me personally prefer the other two, the food is great as usual but the atmosphere was too loud, and the lights that turned on outside the restaurant really ruined it as I had a flood light in my face wouldn’t of minded different table but was packed ,for us it was way too loud and a bit roudy but can’t knock the food as usual but won’t be going to this one again x

The meat was delicious. This was our first time visiting, we were a little unsure on how it all worked (they did explain it’s just the face masks made it hard to understand) I’m not sure what it’s like minus a pandemic but it would have been nice to use the salad bar more / or have access to more sides. We only got one small portion of fries between us and with the way the salad bar works at the moment, I only ended up having rice and garlic mushrooms with my meat. Just a little side note - we had a sign that said well done meat and on a few occasions we were served rare and ended up with blood all over our plate. Can’t fault the service or the food though. Can’t wait to return.

Overall it wasn’t a good experience for us. We were celebrating my husbands 30th birthday, just the two of us. It took about 40 minutes to receive our drinks and be able to go up to the buffet for food. A lot of the buffet choices were unavailable which was slightly annoying. By the time we had finished our buffet food we’d only been served 1 slither of meat each. At this point we mentioned to one of the waiters and he said he would tell the staff. We got a bit more meat but not what you would normally be offered at places like Fazenda. The soft drinks they served were very flat and had to be changed 3 times before they realised there was a problem with their pump. Our next drinks we asked for took about 20 minutes to arrive, by this point I was extremely thirsty. After we finished our meal we asked for cinnamon coated pineapple, they let us wait about 40 minutes after asked several times how long it was going to be and them disappearing to go find out that actually they didn’t have any. All in all it wasn’t good, considering I was paying 10 an hour for a babysitter at home and the amount of hours we spent at this restaurant waiting around. Wouldn’t go again or recommend to any of my friends and family unfortunately.

We waited over 30 mins just for our drinks, we ordered a coke and lemonade the waitress brought them to our table twice however I explained that the gas must need changing on the the fizzy drinks dispenser and the lemonade and coke was totally flat.
We finally got a fizzy drink after being sat down 35 mins.
The food was lovely and the restrictions are all set in place with the covid staff very friendly and helpful

Especially with Covid, I was pleasantly surprised. The seating is actually better now as felt cramped before now in an Estabulo. The staff did well getting the buffet food and no queues or crowd. The meat was brought safely to the table and I felt so comfortable. Was divine as always

I have been too Estabulos pre COVID an never found any bad point too this restaurant. However COVID has made it a little different for obvious reasons but didn’t enhance the experience unfortunately. However as said this is due to COVID right now. I will be returning after COVID in the hope it returns too it’s 5* status. As the staff, food and restaurant are truly fantastic.

Came here to surprise my partner for her birthday and all was going smoothly up until the meat came, we were often given ends of meat and were rarely even brought food. At one point we were waiting 10+ minutes for any food regardless of the whole party having their card on green. I did not want to complain in front of friends and family in case of embarrassment for them but just overall pretty poor. We have been a couple of times and it has always been amazing, so it was a shame this time has let it down.

The service was impeccable, it’s extremely refreshing to see staff members so engaged with the customer and willing to go above and beyond for them!
The food on the other hand, in some areas matched the the incredible service but in other areas not so much. We did receive a sirloin steak which was unbelievably rare, it was completely raw apart from the very exterior and inedible unfortunately. This is just one negative aspect that I wanted to pick up on.
