When I was told about Fazenda, where we dined on Christmas Eve, I had no idea what to expect, and was understandable sceptical. All I was told was that "you'll love it". This was completely the case, as I absolutely loved my evening dining here!

The way the restaurant works involves an open salad bar (one of the best, if not the best, range of food I've ever seen on a salad bar), and a number of waiters who walk around the restaurant bringing various different joints of meat on giant skewers to each table. They ranged from steaks, lamb, gammon, pork and more, and were all cooked in various tasty ways.

When presented with each type of meat, you had the choice whether to accept a slice or not by turning your coaster to the green/red side, which I thought was a very clever idea. I must have had about 10 different types of meat during the evening, all of which ranged from very good to delicious. The waiters were all very friendly and came by our table frequently to offer us more food.

The restaurant itself is in a prime location in central Leeds, and is a very pleasant place to enjoy your meal. With Brazil hosting two major sporting events over the next few years, the staff at Fazenda are doing a sterling job increasing their country's reputation with this fantastic restaurant!

I have to admit that I didn't pay, so can't comment on the value for money, but the portions, atmosphere and service were all excellent. I would recommend Fazenda to anyone, and hope that they open more restaurants across the UK in the very near future!!

If you are a meat lover, this is the place to go. Best to have an empty stomach for this all you can eat BBQ, as the waiters are moving through the tables with every possible variety of meat, freshly roaster, so you could get a piece or a slice. You could taste nearly 20 varieties of meat, and if this is not enough, a large assortment of side dishes are waiting for you in the self serving buffet. This was a wonderful experience!

We arrived at this place with no reservation and didn't know what to expect when we saw the big Florida all you can eat style salad bar in the centre of the restaurant. Have to say we were concerned!

Our waiter showed us to our seats and explained the drill...basically help your self to Salad from the bar and waiters wander around with different costs and types of meat and you jus ask them to carve as much or little as you want. If you want a waiter to vist your table turn your coaster over to green, if you dont turn it over to red.

This is a great experience with attentive staff, a slad bar that is kept fresh and great wines...oh and its easy on the pocket too!

Thank you very much for your feedback. We're very pleased you all enjoyed your meal with us.
Surprising as it might sound, our veggie customers love Fazenda. Their special menu, which includes all vegetarian items from the salad bar, handmade pasta and dessert, always receives great feedback from them. We do understand, though, our meat is the protagonist. Thank you for your compliments to our service, our staff will be very pleased to read your comments.

Staff friendly, had a loverly house red wine. Went to get the sides which is a buffet style and has every side you could imagine. Salad, rice, bread, hummus, sauces etc. you are given a card one side green one side red, if you turn your card to green the waiters will come round with a type of meat, sirloin, belly pork etc. when you've had enough turn your card to red to have a break and when your ready turn back to green. Every meat we had was superb! We will be visiting again
