This has got to be one of my favourite restaurants in Glasgow! And I've only been twice. We visited in march for a family birthday. We got a lovely booth table.

Ignore all the poor reviews!!! I was served by Kirsty and Thais they could not have been more helpful. The food was amazing at first I thought the portions of meat could be bigger but you can ask for more and for any meat to be brought over first or back again but they have the portions spot on! Will... More

Food great. Service great. If you go before 5pm you still qualify for the bargain lunch price of £14.95! Drinks are a little pricey but well worth it when you consider how much you eat and how much you pay! The salad bar/buffet had a lovely selection of Brazilian dishes, stews, chicken wings, side dishes. Try the cheesey balls! -... More

I booked myself and my girlfriend in for a meal for 2 having been recommended Viva Brazil by a work colleague. Upon arriving,a couple just in front of us were turned away as they were only taking booked tables due to a meat shortage. The couple who were sent packing each received a £10 off their next visit voucher....they definitely... More

Been twice now so feel this is a fair review as the experience has been similar on both occasions. The food from the salad bar is ok, the food being carved at the tables is very poor quality, the meat is tough, over fatty and not overly warm. The seasoning is really heavy with too much salt on everything. Food... More

Visited this restaurant recently having heard lots of good things about it. The restaurant is nice and the concept is something different. We really enjoyed the food both the buffet table and meat served to our table by the hard working waiting staff. However it seemed despite offering free food for under 3s and a kids menu we felt the... More

Excellent place food is amazing. Staff very good too. Very relaxing atmosphere. I was here with my family for the lunch and everyone enjoyed it. The youngest with us was 13 years old and he even gave the food a try much to my delight.

Where do I start? Booked in for a party of nine and we were seated pretty quickly so that was good. From then on it all went downhill....ordered drinks and finally got them when the majority of the party were half way through their meal. I was ok though because I wanted fish and apparently if you don't eat meat,... More

Brought some friends in tonight for dinner and had been telling them how great the place was all day. The food was pretty good in general. The meat was good and the buffet section was good too. The problem was 3 of the 15 dishes weren't available. The waitress offered no apology or reason as to why these dishes were... More

Unique experience. Booked on line for a birthday treat. Tried every one of the 15 meats on offer at lunch. Chicken heart was tasty but the usual texture/ density put me off a bit. Very reasonable under £25 a head with drinks. Dessert is compt on Sunday. I will definitely return, great atmosphere, great service, great food.
