Food was amazing but the service wasn’t.
The waitress was very rude we had to complain to the manager and he took the table. Also the air conditioning wasn’t working and in the restaurant where 38 degrees it was too hot and I really couldn’t enjoy the ambient and the food.
Service for the drinks was very slowly we had to ask 3 times the water and it arrived after 40 minutes.
I don’t think I will go back to this restaurant even if the food is soo good!

Always love this place new coping regulations work well with the staff serving your buffet items some of the meat that was brought out seemed a little dry and cold though the pork was absolutely delicious I understand at the moment that it might be very quiet and I know so long as it’s edible and safe to eat it will be used it was very quiet and the staffWe are functional but not particularly over friendly

We had a great experience (as expected) as we've been there before. Since Covid, the tables are more spaced, which is good, but when going to the buffet it requires an employee filling the plate for you - the issue there is that you can't actually go in the space to see what you want! The meat came at a steady pace which is always appreciated. Our table service was great and the waitress was lovely.

Awful slow service, went for my birthday. Had to remind the staff 3 times that we were still waiting for our water. The meats came around so slow that it was obvious to make us get fuller quicker. Totally ruined my day

First and foremost, the service... credit to the staff for not only making sure we felt comfortable and satisfied, but also safe during these uncertain times. The food was excellent, with a fantastic variety of meats. Only issue (and its not at the fault of the restaurant but the virus) the atmosphere was lacking, creating a less than ambient experience. Overall though fully enjoyed and would go back again!

Not everyone will like the Preto experience, if you like abundance of meat served on a skewer at your table there’s no reason not to like it.

Enjoyed my first lockdown meal at Preto - West End. Staff were attentive and explained the new “safety & hygiene” features, food was great and it was definitely value for money.

Only critique is that staff were the only ones to select your cold buffet items (which is understandable). You were allowed to get up and view the items and make a selection but after my first selection, I didn’t want to ask a waiter for more cold buffet items - the “meat waiters” came around to the table very frequently but it would have been nice for the cold buffet waiters to take one more visit to the table to ask if we wanted to anything else. You ARE allowed to ask though so don’t put this off you.

Overall it was peacefully quiet for a Friday evening and I left very satisfied!

At first service was a tad bit slow and we had to call over the waiters to get our drinks and sides taken, however it only got better after that. The meats were brought out very quickly and the flavour in both the sides and meats were perfect. Definitely got our moneys worth and will be going back!

Food was really good, however they came out with the meat too quickly. Also as it was the first night that lockdown was lifted, the restaurant appeared a bit disorganised. They didn’t give us cutlery, the red/green markers for the tables were missing so each time meat came out they had to ask every table which was very distracting.
Overall all things considered - well done to the staff on ensuring everyone was served and left very full in these very difficult times. Would definitely eat here again next time we are in London.

Great food at a great price, especially for the west end. Food was a great standard and they literally gave you as much as you could eat.
You have a card which you keep green for feed me more and turn over when you’re full.
Staff really friendly and helpful, will definitely go back

Food and kids eat free offer was good. Service however wasn’t - servers that brought the meat round were good but the waitresses were all chatting with each other and not friendly. I have the service charge removed from the bill, which is very unlike me!!

The wednesday 2 for 1 deal was very good value. The meat was very tasty however the buffet section could be improved. The service was good because it was a very busy evening.

The meats were great, however I thought the buffet could of had some more selection on salads. I also would have like to see some pineapple either grilled or raw. Other than that we had a great time and would defiantly go back

We went for a valentine's day treat as there was a code on Facebook for £30 all you could eat and drink (prosecco or beer) for 1.5 hours. It was excellent, waiters refilled our drinks constantly and the meat waiters come over all the time. The food was lovely and atmosphere was nice, lively but you could easily hear each other. I have already recommended to friends and would definitely go again

I love this place. But for my last trip I was told soon as we sat down that the table had been booked for an hour's time so we had to be finished and out before they arrived. Even though I had booked the table myself.

Not very good for an ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET.
