A lovely meal to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful and the array of meats was staggering. You have to REALLY like meat but if you do it is cooked to perfection and well presented. Live music was an added bonus

Definitely the best restaurant in Glasgow! Since discovering this place only some months ago we try to go at least once a week with our 2 young daughters.
The selection of meats is always first class, red meat usually rare to medium but the servers are more than happy to bring it 'well done' if you like it cremated like me. The chicken hearts are a big no-no for me but my husband and our oldest usually devour over a skewer full! The meat just keeps coming including lamb, various cuts of beef, chicken in bacon,chilli chicken, gammon, parmesan pork, sausages and more....There is also the salad bar where you help yourself to salad, olives, bread cheese etc and other authentic Brazilian dishes various fish/chicken/beef stews.....and deep fried breaded bananas..love them!
I could honestly go on and on about the food but you really need to go and experience it for yourself!
Stunning restaurant and the staff/waitresses/meat servers are lovely, too many names to remember but Fefas is our girls favourite!
We actually managed there last night with out the kids and as per usual it was fantastic, thank you again Viva!
We'll be back Sunday or before! :)

We ate here the last time we were in Glasgow and it was a novelty but second time around it was not so enjoyable.
I just had a salad where you can eat as much as you want from the bar for £12.50 while partner had the Full Rodizio for £23.95 where you can taste fifteen different meats, you turn up your card on table to green when you want to try the next one, so on until you have had enough. I don,t think many people get to the full fifteen.
Staff were pleasant but there was something missing to make this a night to remember.

Warmly welcomed by staff coats hung up and we were guided to table to join family and friends. Space was à bit tight and when mentioned to staff they added à small table with no fuss. Service was friendly and efficient. When meat was cut it was no problem for waiter to serve as many pieces as we wanted and they were eager to cut the pièce of meat to suit your palette. When asked they would bring rare,well done or different meat. Jugs of water were refilled regularly and advice ré cocktails was freely given. All in all a successful celabratory evening on a busy Saturday.

This is the most appalling restaurant I have ever eaten in with such rushing waitresses and waiters in the entire world.

The food is extremely disgusting and taste like sausages without any meat in them.

the atmosphere is like going to the school dinner hall and having to line up for your food.

The value for money is an absolute disgrace and outrages especially the total cost of alcohol being at £100 which not even a middle class family could afford.

So there for and over all this is the most appalling restaurant I have ever been to and will never be going back to in the rest of my entire life.
