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.

My husband and I went for dinner on his birthday. Overall i cant fault the restaurant, the food was delicious, the service was great and our experience was as expected. Only downside was that we were seated near a large party of men who were very loud from the moment they came in, and we couldn’t really enjoy the peace and ambience of the restaurant prior to their arrival. The dress code was smart casual, yet they came in wearing hoodies, caps and other sports wear and were still welcomed. This affected our experience and that of a few couples around us which was a shame.

Noise was unbearably loud yet everything else was as expected, food was good yet it should have been for the price however all beef was overdone - even though the inside was cooked medium rare, this making it chewy. Good selection at salad bar but instructions at start were not clear unlike other similar restaurants we have visited. Overall it would have been much better if we could hear each other speak and meat was cooked better to avoid jaw ache.

Menu advertises 20-odd cuts of meat. In reality the servers kept bringing the same 4 or 5 cuts around. We never saw 3/4 of the meats offered on the menu. Certainly not worth the 30quid price tag each.

What we did get nice though.

Met with friends for lunch.It was ok,had better at the other Estabulo across town.
Very noisy with diners and the piped music was just a bit too loud.
Food was ok,the meats were very rare,and we asked for a more well done cut but l think everyone wanted the well done cuts too.
It was cold in the restaurant.

Sat somewhere very cold. Hard to get attention of staff. Some of the meats med rare but others over cooked to my liking. Service charge ridiculous and some of us not comfortable in saying no! Most positive thing the chips. Sorry not really impressed.

Plentiful meat supplied and regularly. Some meat was a little dry / tough, but majority was perfect. Nice salad bar too. Only negative was we visited on a Monday at 4pm but were sat uncomfortably close to two other couple tables, almost shoulder to shoulder, but it wasn't very busy. Seems silly.

Service was very slow sat waiting for food most of the time there, people walking straight passed with meat not stopping at our table. Asked for chips for each person was brought two, asked for another two was brought one but had 7 portions notes on the bill. Salad bar hot items flat cold and chips all gone by the time got any meat
Not a great second visit at all won’t be going back over priced for what ends up a cold meal

First time there, we’ve been to this type of restaurant before so knew what to expect food wise. All food was nice enough but we were sat in the middle of the restaurant and it was busy. It’s loud and echoey in there so having a conversation was out of the question. People getting up going to the salad bar we’re just pushing passed table was knocked a few times. Waiting staff were friendly enough but every thing seemed rushed. Not a place for date night that’s for sure. Price is reasonable but personally id pay a bit more and go to Fazenda it’s a much nicer place for that type of restaurant.

It was bustling but the service was pretty good. Staff were attentive and asked if we wanted to see any particular food from the menu. One particular guy ensured we got what we asked for and kept us updated as to when it would be ready. Really impressed and received better service than Wakefield restaurant.

The selection of steak is great, but had to wait an hour for anything else like chicken, pork or halloumi. Also waited quite a while for drinks, which were overpriced in my opinion. A service charge is automatically calculated and added, unless you request otherwise, which didnt match the service. The food is delicious though, and theres plenty of it! Dont eat beforehand. Overall nice experience. 3.9 out of 5.

Good food and atmosphere but understaffed and felt had to ask a number of times to get any bodies attention. Reception staff didn’t acknowledge us and were obviously stressed but felt like we were not particularly welcome.

Just got back from establos. Bit disappointing really paid the same price as fazendas and not a patch on fazendas.

I won’t be going back in a rush.
They showed us to our table.

Then we sat about 15 min waiting for them to take our drinks order. We went to the buffet sat down waited another 10mins
Then a waiter came over asked if everything was ok we said just waiting for some meat.

Then they started with the meat very slowly.

The selection of meat was poor we had about 6.

pork, lamb, various cuts of beef and chicken,


If you’ve not been to fazendas go there far better service and food.

Fantastic food, with a great selection of meats coming out regularly. Unfortunately our order of fries took a long time to come out and we had to ask 3x times before they did. Other than that couldn’t fault the staff- attentive and very polite and friendly
Well worth a visit! Go hungry!!!

Food was gorgeous, plenty for all, the people fetching out the meat were very efficient, but not the waitresses serving drinks, I had to physically find someone to get another drink. So the service lacked there. Girl taking bill payment watched me empty my purse and then scoffed at me... We don't take cash, there is a sign as you walk in....
