Meat, meat, meat and, oh, there's a salad bar.

We were a group of 10 work colleagues excited about the new dining experience. It was a Friday night and very busy, with the noise level being very high and the atmosphere lively. You are asked to go to the salad bar, to get your plate and stock up on your accompaniments for the meat feast to... read more

This was our first visit here and will not be our last! As an ex-Glaswegian we were looking for somewhere different to eat and Viva Brazil certainly ticked the box. Booked the night before and arrived on Sunday right away I knew we had made the right choice. The staff were really welcoming and showed us to our table. We... More

We came with a group of friends all the way from Dubai looking for a good place for dinner. The hotel concierge had reccommended Viva Brazil, since we are brazilians, so we decided to have a go and bring some foreign friends along to try our cusine. Despite arriving late, we were still warm-welcomed and promptly got a table. The... More

On the point of entry we were welcomed by a lovely blonde girl called Charlene, she led us to our table and made us feel welcome, explained well how the restaurant works. We ordered some delicious cocktails which came quickly and the food (especially the meat) was incredible and authentic. We will be definitely coming back and will recommend it... More

My second visit to this restaurant, this time I went in a large family group for a celebration during the afternoon. They continue to maintain their excellent standards with an outstanding selection and excellent service. Every member of staff is clearly well trained and very well presented, we had one small hiccup with a drinks order and the waitress immediately... More

Excellent service, range of food and quality. Surprisingly good for vegetarian diner and a 7 year old child (who loved the chicken hearts!!). The waiting staff were very friendly and welcoming. It is a meat feast and you won't leave hungry! Great meal out. Not sure why they have a desert menu - not required!!!

The selection of food was unbelievable! Really enjoyed trying all the different meats available and will definitely be back. Would just of liked more choice on the salad bar since that's all there is bar meat!

First time at viva like the idea and understand that meat needs to be cured but far to much salt most of it was so salty dry that it will make you turn vegetarian. Went in at 4 pm probably wrong time as meat left from lunch trade only thing that was tender and no salt was the pineapple. Waiters... More

Came here on a Tuesday night, it was fairly quiet with around 4 other tables. The concept is great, eating as much as you like and there are a lot of different choices. The food was okay but some of the meats seemed a bit bland like they had not been marinated and simply roasted. My main niggle though was... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Viva Brazil. It was our first visit and staff were very attentive, explaining how the service system works. They were quick to notice when we wanted anything and the maître d' (I assume) was very visible and observant. The food was second to none. Fantastic roast meats were tasty and plentiful and the array of... More
