El pequeño problema fue que no nos atendieron a la hora que resevamos.

I have been there before, it was more quiet and less exciting without the buffet, but that’s just due to the pandemic. The food was really good, the staff was friendly and accommodating.
I hope to go back again!

The guys bringing the meat were wonderful, but the waitress was absent-minded and annoyingly slow at times. The rest was good. I will be back though hoping to come across another waiter.

The food is amazing!!! The meat is so tender and extremely well seasoned. The Brazilian beef, peppered steak and pork sausage were my favourites. But honestly the food, cocktails, music, staff, everything is on point.

Service was really really slow and unless we called/shouted at the waiters we would not be paid attention to.

The guy at the door was quite abrupt and almost unbothered about everything

Food very good and tasty. The waitress was very friendly and kind.
The only problem we had was the ‘timing’. The food took a long time to arrive, including the desserts. We got 1:30h total to stay and after that, when we were finishing our desserts (which took ages to arrive), the manager came with the bill and told us we had to leave.
One thing that I cannot cope is eating in a rush, and that was exactly what happened.

Overall it was a ok experience, I have attend this location prior on way busier times and the service was way more efficient. This time me and my guest felt that we were doing a favour being at this location and to get attention from anyone was a very difficult mission.
The waitress looked angry, up on my arrival my guest requested a different wine glass, which she replayed in Portuguese without knowing I speak the language “oh my god another one”, which I replay in portugues sorry and she felt very surprised and did not returned to our table.
A honest feedback, the venue looks awesome and very welcoming, however, the service has fall downhill I would suggest further training to the venue to be the point to go to for all the Brazilian community in central London.

Overall, ok. Food was good, experience was ok.
Tables and floor were very greasy and sticky.
We had to wait at least 10-15min for a waiter to come great us in a not so busy hour.

I liked Preto however the service was quite slow , but I must say all the waiting staff was really nice

We asked several times for water but arrived only at half meal and also asked for more starters and this too took very long time to arrive

They served the chicken hearts only once and only one of us could have it as then were finished

It was not what I had expected, but I believe it will be experienced differently by a younger generation. So don't see it negative but it was personally not a place I return to.
But I would recommend it to younger people

Good food and service great. However, one server favoured a table who spoke Portuguese and so whenever the chicken hearts came out, they kept going to a greedy table. It was my friend’s first time and I mentioned chicken heart and sadly none came.

Toilets were extremely dirty and only had female open. Hair and wee all over the toilet seat.
Rice was bland
Chips were oily
Salad was so basic
Meat came straight out if the freezer you can see it from the table which spoils the experience
The worst dining experience I have had in a very long time.
We paid over £60 and ate hardly anything.
Best thing they should do is close down!

Servers of the meat were great and were on the ball. Actual waitresses were terrible. We were left without plates for at least 10m, the servers of the meat in the end got us plates. Sides took ages to come as the waitress kept forgetting to order them. We were also brought over the wrong drink on multiple occasions. The venue was not even that busy, but the waitresses just seemed disengaged and disconnected. Meat was great, the sides not so much.
