Very different restaurant, loved the concept- they should open more branches

Went to this restaurant as heard it was very different and it was. Loved the choice and quality of the meats, could not manage more than 6 types though...not sure how anyone could get through all 15 though! Don't fill up too much on the salad bar so you have space for the meat. all the staff... read more

This is a top restaurant with a novel idea of encouraging the customers to sample as many of their delicious meats as possible. When you are shown to your table there is a card with a list of all the meats on offer on it. Your waiter/waitress then brings round a different meat on a skewer and carves a slice... More

Meats are all very tasty, personally i avoided the chicken hearts though! The sides and salad bar have plenty of tasty options although i would say go easy to start with, to save room for all the tasty meats that the waiter or waitress will carve for you at your table side. The staff are all lovely and friendly, the... More

I visited Brazil many years ago and this is an authentic version of their barbecue restaurants, where the basic premise is that you eat meat until you explode. Viva Brazil serves a very extensive range of meats, most of which I really enjoyed. The servers don't seem constrained by any form of portion control and will give you as much... More

It's a meat buffet with ppl coming to your table with skewers of meat. Tips: have an empty stomach, minimise on the salad bar (it's much better than the average), they say you can go multiple rounds-you wont. Our group had big eaters and none of us made it past the first round so good luck. The last dish was... More
