“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Went with hubby to try it out.
It was different and we enjoyed the steaks etc also the mashed potato that you help yourself to was amazing but I'm afraid at 25 a head with no desert is far too pricey for us.
There's far too many restaurants with good deals on to go back to this one.
Staff were nice and friendly and I left my purse there and after a a few phone calls they found it and I got it back

“Where to start, in reverse maybe?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

First impressions great, good atmosphere, dining area well-appointed & polite staff.
Not surprisingly meat focused, however seafood option available as well.
Basically eat as much as you can from the buffet selections with waiters offering, at sporadic intervals, meat choices for you to try
Chicken, lamb, pork, beef…... it goes on and on, so you will never ever leave here hungry.
Quality is variable I have found dependent on which night you visit but never poor, as I said earlier if you are someone that opts for quantity over quality you will love it.
Point of Note : If visiting for the first time please note that you are offered the “cheaper” cuts of meat first so by the time the steak and premium cuts are offered you are too full to take full advantage!
Certainly makes for a different night out.

“Excellent Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Been to Viva Brazil half a dozen or so times now and can't fault it.

Was there with my wife, mum, brother, his girlfriend and 2 year old.

Service was great as always, the buffet part was fresh and the meats excellent.

Only downside is I eat that much I could have rolled back to the car.

“Will be going back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

This was my first time visiting Viva Brazil, heard a lot of good things about it.

We visited on Thursday evening, was pretty busy for a week night but then there was a concert on locally which may have explained it. We were made very welcome, the waiter was very enthusiastic and explained the process for those who hadn't been before.

Salads were nice and fresh with a great selection, but you don't really visit for that. The meat was brilliant, my advice is to go easy on the initial servings (Cheaper meat like sausage, chicken breast, pork) and hold out for the rump and sirloin steaks - the meat servers (I forget the name, wasn't being rude) will happily give you a number of cuts without hesitation if you wish.

All in all, great cooked meat, welcoming and helpful staff, nice clean facility and it's in the city centre. I'll certainly be going back.
