Mediocre at best. Salad bar was clealy designed to fill you up on carbs (all potatoes and rice), little salad actually available. The format of the meal was strange- with the waitress stamping a card to keep track of what we had eaten already. I understood the rationale, but it felt a bit restrictive, like you were only allowed one... More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend at work, and I couldn't be happier that I did! The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful in explaining the premise of the restaurant. I didn't get chance to try all of the meats on offer (I was silly and decided to have quite a lot from the salad bar before... More

This was my second visit to Viva Brazil and unfortunately not as good as the first. The main issue with this visit I feel was the day we visited, the first time a Thursday, where it was reasonably busy. This visit however, a Saturday, and the place was understandably mobbed. The servers were rushed off their feet running between tables... More

We had been looking forward to our first visit but felt a little bit disappointed. The salad bar was one of the plus things. As other reviewers have said, the slithers of beef were not medium rare but quite rare with no option to have it cooked more. The free desserts on Sunday were very limited and we all opted... More

A group of six of us went to Viva Brazil for a meal. All you can eat, 15 kinds of meat, for £25. Loved the way that the meat was carved fresh at your table and you just got a small taste of it rather than a huge portion. They like you to try all 15 varieties and then you... More
