Having been to Rodizio's before I was very disappointed second time round. On arrival we we greeted by unruly, misbehaving kids running around the restaurant and dance floor. Reminiscent of another South African restaurant were kids run around on their way to the indoor ball pond and slide. I find it unacceptable that management allows this to happen. Certainly not...

Rodizio is a firm favourite with us. Each visit gets better. Has to be one of the best in South Africa. Perfect location, food is simply Grilled to perfection, service is great, and a visit to Fourways is not complete till you have dined at the Rodizio. Joss and Tony have it down pat in running a fine establishment. This... More

We celebrated my Brother's 50th birthday party at this fantastic venue on 07 May 2016. Food and atmosphere is always great. We had amazing service and excellent seating space. However, the dance floor is far toooo small for the amount of clients the restaurant can accommodate. I found this the only neg about this fantastic restaurant. The branch in Fourways... More

Rodizio in Bedfordview offers a unique night out, has great variety and a lively vibe. Their meat and vegetarian dishes are equally high quality, albeit a bit pricey. They also have live entertainment throughout the evening, inviting diners to spend their evening enjoying the friendly atmosphere rather than dine and dash. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here with friends.

A decent venue for an old fashioned get together, company team building or Friday night fiesta. Good for a laugh & a dance, & the food is decent, & quite good value for money. Only downside is that it is very popular (specially over the Christmas season with company year end functions), & the service can get a little slow... More

Awesome platter menu and phenomenal staff too! The music was a nice mix of genres and I'm sure no one went home feeling cheated out of the fun promised. Paula & staff, we promise to come back in 2016 for another NYE. Pitty we didn't have a lot more to tip our waitress, she was just amazing!
