Description: Churrascarias are traditional Brazilian steakhouses known throughout the South American countries offering the most succulents cuts of meat prepared by skilled artisans. The style of cooking found in Churrascarias dates back to the Brazilian cowboys, who roasted skewered cuts of meat over fire pits. This is the ethos that inspired Bem Brasil Bar & Restaurant. The team at this popular restaurant don't believe in limits, which is why it offers a unique continuous service (or Rodizio), where the meat is carved right at your table and you're able to take as much or as little as you want.

“Good family fun if a little expensive”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Family meal after a day out at MoSI
Happy to take the children as they both qualified for children's prices - 1/3 of the price of an adult
Good selection of salads and vegetables but no chips this time (brought to our table when we visited on a Friday night) and plenty of meat (not a place for vegetarians !)
The chilli chicken wings were the favorite dish along with rump steak and top side of beef.
The children loved the idea of the red/green disc used to indicate if you want more meat (or not)
We weren't rushed at all and easily completed our meal within the 2 hour window.
Not a restaurant to visit every week as it would soon lose it's appeal (and it is a bit pricey) but great for a treat.
Would recommend to any carnivore :) - probably better value at lunchtime.

“Tasty food, but not good value.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went to Bem Brasil on the 28th October with a 16 strong group of family and friends. We were seated all together at a long table and the waitress explained the restaurant rules. One side of the table was cramped and everyone had to get up to let one person out every time which was a pain but we got used to that.
Once that was out of the way we all helped ourselves to the salad bar.
which looked delicious. We made our way back to our seats and the meats arrived in good time.You only get a small amount which makes sense because there will be quite a few different cuts of meat coming, although it was difficult to actually get a little more and had to ask a couple of times.
We had paid £23 per head and had been told we had TWO HOURS to eat at our table, pity this didn't happen. Let me explain why....
After exactly ONE hour, a single waitress asked vaguely if people had finished eating, 3 people said they had, the other 13 people at the table had not heard the waitress say anything. The staff immediately removed a lot of plates from the table and basically, they stopped serving our table. There were still about half a dozen people who wanted to carry on eating and had paced themselves. Even after several tries asking various staff to please carry on serving, it just didn't happen. Eventually one or two of the waiters served our table but nothing like the way they had done in the first hour, some waiters even completely ignored people who had their hands raised to ask to be served.
Basically, we were well served for one hour then the service dwindled down to nothing the second hour, we thought it was pretty cynically done to be honest, to save putting product on our table. We had a word with the manager, who was nice but did not accept any responsibility at first and offered to check the video , we said we would watch it with him, he declined. Eventually he apologized although we could not accept it. If Bem Brasil had delivered on their promise of all you can eat for two hours I would have given the place 5 stars but we feel they cynically stopped serving our table so I have to give them a 2 star rating, sorry, we SHOULD be better served for nearly £25 per person.

“Great fun, as always...”
Reviewed October 25, 2012


Madly busy, yet very well managed. We went on a Saturday night.

Bem Brasil is about the experience and the fun. The food is good too.

My tip, don't fill up on sausages. Wait for the lamb to turn up it is fabulous. We had a bet that we wouldn't eat the chicken hearts, but we did. They're really good!
