I have been to this Preto in the past but they have changed the way side dishes are obtained. Before there was a help yourself area for all sides and to refill as you wanted. Now you have to order them from a waiter and also ask for the refill. It was near impossible to get a waiters attention on my visit and when you did it took ages for your items to be brought to you. I saw many potential customers waiting at the door and eventually walk out because no one attended to them. There where many staff on duty but It just seemd very disorganised.

The price was high for overall. Since you have the time limited the staff was so relax (also looked unhappy) on serving. Variety wise was not bad but won't repeat.

Cold temperature, none ask if it was to cold. Less cutlery. They were bringing food without to have the plates in the table. Too expensive for the experience we have had.

Always a bug fan of Preto, good selection of meats and also good quality, the service however wasn’t as good as it should be, we had to wait quite a while for our drinks, starters and plates.
Overall me and the rest of the party had an amazing time and definitely will visit again!

They started serving food 30 mins after we have sat on our table. Then the food stopped coming our way 30 mins before our time slot is due. So basically, we only ate for 1 hour on our 2 hours booking. And there’s no lamb. Very disappointing for a grill restaurant.

Sides took ages to show up and were tiny which would make me wait even more if I had requested more, meat choice was quite reduced compared to previous times I visited and some of it was super dry and unseasoned.

Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience although the food was nice we were sat near the door which was constantly being held open by the queue of people waiting for a table this meant that not only where we cold our food got cold quicker. Trust me cold chips are not nice. There were quite a few other tables that we could have been given so that this wasn’t the case as they remained empty during our visit & they weren’t accepting walk ins as were fully booked. It was difficult to get a member of staffs attention to see if we could move as they only came around when we had finished.

The location is nice but it’s too expensive. Meat was good and the waiters were nice.. But it’s a pity that this rodizio doesn’t propose a buffet..

Understaffed but the few staff members there were very much kind, caring, and helpful.

A lot of things we've asked for as sides did not come, maybe not available so we were left expecting them until end of dinner.

Dining with family we thought was£25 each for 4 but we end up paying £140 was pricey with just ordinary drink . Food was good (meat ) but the service was very slow it takes a long time for bowl of rice , chips with bananas to be serve in table , we would rather prepare the buffet style which some restaurant are already back to their normal buffet style.

We arrived early for our reservation and was sat in the back corner away from the majority of the restaurant. For 20 min we were ignored completely until I flagged someone down and asked if it wouldn’t be better to move to another table so that the servers from the kitchen could see us. We were told “we’ll speak to the manager to see if you can move as we have reservations”. I explained that we are one of the reservations and there were many open tables in the middle of the restaurant. We were left for another 10 minutes until I managed to flag down a manager who said he would move us but that they needed the table back by 8pm. I laughed because they wouldn’t have been a problem if we were served in the 30 minutes that we arrived. Once we were moved service greatly improved. We did have to ask multiple times for some things but after 15 min or so they did show up. Not as impressed with sauces being served out of packets though but that’s being picky. Overall the kids did really enjoy the experience and the food was tasty and filling. As well we did get one of our children free by downloading a voucher off the website so it made the overall cost worth it. Just DON’T let them sit you in the back corner unless you like being throughly ignored. Recommended only with kids as an experience but not as a great place to go with all there is to choose from in London.

It took around 35-40min for someone to come to our table to take our order. And then we didn’t receive everything we ordered. Asked for it a few times and ended up not receiving it at all.
I have been going to Preto very often for years and it was so far the most disappointing experience. It’s very sad to see it’s loosing the great vibe and quality it used to have.

We have been to Preto before and had a great meal. Last night however was awful. We waited 45 minutes before even being offered a drink - I ended up going to ask at the bar. It then took another 15 minutes to get a drink which first was incorrect and for another table. We ordered our sides which arrived I then had to ask for some plates to eat them on. The chefs with the skewers came to the table and I was greeted with two words ' beef Mr' ! - I am female. The meat was not of the same standards as before. Some being tough and they have reduced the good quality cuts like sirloin of beef and (from Memory) it was leg of lamb. The Lamb was not readily available so we asked if we could have some we were given a tiny chop which was chewy. I don't usually write bad reviews on any restaurant but really feel I need to on this occasion.
