We had a fantastic meal at Rodizio Rico, beautifully cooked meats, a lovely salad bar including dishes such as lasagne! Staff were really helpful and friendly. We recommend it wholeheartedly

Manager was very unprofessional, we didn’t get seated for over 20 minutes even though we’d pre booked a table beforehand. People with new reservations were seated before us and the service was very poor throughout the evening. To add further insult, they attempted to apply a service charge to our meal! Attempting to get a drink was a task, which is a shame because we spent over £200 with the limited drinks we had, we would have been more than happy to spend more if offered!

Grilled meat range was good and salad bar ok. No list of desserts - just a verbal description.
Watch out for bill being read out (never got a written bill) and open credit card machine to catch for second tip!

Really enjoyed it and our friends did as it was their first time. Food was nice but have to admit I missed the skirt steak which they no longer offer.

Food was very good, I was full before I could try the different meat options though sadly. Plenty of gluten-free options too. Ambience and staff great too.

Lovely setting at The Mailbox in Bham. The food was lovely, the range of meats on offer met everyone's needs. They stopped coming to us with meat after a while but we hadn't turned our coasters over to red to say we needed a rest. Other than that, would recommend.

Very disappointed. Costs ridiculous amounts of money for low quality meat and they take ages to bring it round. They feed you slowly so you fill up on the salad bar. Would not recommend this place even for the biggest meat eaters. Better off going to a standard smokehouse

Whilst we enjoyed the experience as a whole we feel that you do need a very big appetite to take advantage of everything on offer or you might feel that the price is a little expensive

Rodizio was highly recommended to me by friends and it did not disappoint. The food was great and although it is a wee bit on the steep side, I would definitely visit again.

Great food and great staff make this a good place to go to for special occasions. A little noisy thanks to a large table of over exuberant people on the table next to us but a small thing.
Expensive place to eat but for once or twice a yesr it's grest

Sincerely disappointed with Rodizio Rico Birmingham. Having dined there before I booked a table in advance for a time slot which was advertised as available (10:00pm) to arrive to a pre booked meal to be told they had stopped serving food. Bearing in mind their website displayed their closing time that evening to be 11:30 and their last serving would be 45 minutes prior to that we arrived with plenty of time yet were turned away at the door by a member of staff. They will have been aware that the table was booked and a party was due to arrive yet despite this decided they were unable to cater. Poor turnout for Rodizio Rico

Great location and great service. Sadly very few edible similarities to a real Chirrascaria. Plenty of non-expensive meat cuts but little great beef tastes as you get in Brazil. Not impressed with the offcuts passed off as “veal” or “baby beef”. Go for the experience but that’s it.

The food was superb. I have to admit, I found myself having the meat sweats but that was purely my greed!
The service couldn’t be faulted and the friendliness of the staff really added to the pleasure of the visit.

We had a woucher which the waitress made us get on our phones to find whilst standing in the door way she should of allowed us to be seated at least ! The food was ok but very salty and no fries to go with all the meat ??? Very strange we were not offered another round of drinks at all during our time there just thought it wasn’t a very pleasant experience

We booked a table for 3 on line for 3pm but we arrived at 15:30pm due to traffic congestion, the guy who received us told us adviced that they were closing at 16:00hrs so if we wanted could come back later and we did rebook then for 17:30, which we came back later then and enjoyed a lovely evening. I would bring more friends to this place

Interesting service style: most food is at the buffet (very good quality!) and then the servers wander the dining floor each with their own spigot of meat. Food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was not as high end as I'd expected, but nice and casual.

Booked this to entertain Customers and having previously been here I knew everyone would enjoy it and they did, with their quirky way to serve the varied meats a great salad bar to chose from with traditional Brazilian food this place has a great feel to it.

The quality of the meat is unstable and service is not good as the waiter with meat just ignored us after we started for one hour, maybe they just think we finished however we haven’t...we started from 6:30pm and the first round of meat was too tough to be cut and the beef was over cooked. It seems like the left meat from lunch...not really good experience.

We were given a table with a lovely view of the canal and more importantly a lovely breeze ( it was 30 degrees). The restaurant is a help yourself to salads and other accompaniments such as lasagne. A waiter brings round meat on a skewer and cuts this at your table. Some meat excellent other not so. They need to label the food better for those with allergies , not just the name of the item.
The restaurant was very busy with lots of large parties but that did not detract from our meal.
