“Meat-Fest - delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Well this place certainly did not disappoint! The buffet table is full of all sorts of yummy things, from salads, fish, rice / potato dishes etc, it was almost tempting to fill up there. We thought we were starving, but after sampling chicken wings, chicken hearts, sirloin, rump, lamb, smokey pork, and various other morsels that are brought round to the table straight from the BBQ, we had to admit defeat! We really liked the fact that under 6’s eat free, and thought that £22 per head for an all-you-can-eat meatfest was brilliant value. We had the strawberry sangria to drink which was delicious. Will definitely visit again – but will ask for a table away from the BBQ as it got a bit hot there.

“If you like meat, you will love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Lots of meat and it keeps on coming. You may get full up quite quickly so don't bite off more than you can chew (quite literally the waiter comes over with meat on a skewer and you slice it off yourself!). Lots of flavour and very different cuts of meat to what we usually get in the UK. There is also a buffet cart for salad and other sundries. If you haven't been yet, ts definitely worth a try!! Its not somewhere I would go regularly simply by the nature of the food, I prefer to pick a starter and main course off a menu, but couldn't really fault it otherwise. The staff are very friendly, chatty and seem genuinely interested!

“Having grown up in Brazil, this was a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The service was excellent and the meats were close to being the best I could expect this far from Brazil. The atmosphere is great and staff friendly. The buffet part had almost all the things I expected and all of it was delicious. Having read the other reviews it is clear that groups larger than 4 are difficult in such a popular place but then you would expect that. I look forward to returning during one of their live music evenings!

“man vs food heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

this place is for meat eaters and anyone happy to have a good time, gets bustling and busy even on a monday night, services is friendly and efficient. you can definitely pig out and have a good time with a great selection of grilled meats, all cooked well. not too often and don't eat the day before you go!

“Not for vegetarians..!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

No, we are not - we are full on carnivores. Not sure I have ever eaten so much meat at one sitting. Once you understand the red/green card system, then off you go. DO NOT think you are clever and fill your plate with breads and salads from the salad bar - you are wasting good stomach space. Save yourself for the protein feast which about to been.

That said, having been once, I'm not entirely sure we would rush back. It was fine as a novelty or if you were very very hungry. But the food is not cheap. There is little or no ambience (full of screaming kids when we went).

Can't blame it for sure on the restaurant but 2 of us were very ill for a couple of days afterwards. Not sure we ate anything that was off, but apparently the body is not good at coping with vast quantities of meat protein in one sitting - I"lL say it again - be prepared for a lot of very tasty meat.
