“GREAT MEAL GREAT EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We went with a group of friends and our 15 year old daughter. Lovely setting, great attentive staff. We were given samosa's & dips to nibble on, we didn't have many though as we were looking forward to the meal. The concept was explained to us very clearly. They have a great salad bar with a good variety of salads & pasta's. You are served fries at the table if you want then the meat service begins. You just turn your card green for want more meat, red for no more - waiters just keep coming round with a lovely variety of well cooked meats - we even got to try crocodile. At the end they bought round some lovely banana's in cinnamon & pineapples. We all really enjoyed the evening.

“Seriously good meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

A superb selection of meats cooked in a wide variety of ways, allied with the salad buffet and good service make this place a lunchtime winner.

“Better Value & Meat Than The Carnivore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Very reasonable prices and fantastic cuts of grilled meat. This is a fixed price per head, Brazilian-style BBQ house with un-limited servings of a selection of meats. They offer meat from rare to well done, which was a change for the better. From most places like this We were disappointed they didn't have enough prawns but really enjoyed everything from service, to atmosphere to flavour. Even the salads and salad bar choices were really good.

Parking is very bad so take a cab. The place is packed, so reserve ahead and be willing to wait a bit.

Our favourites:
Best was the prime rib, crocodile was delicious, lamb, grilled pineapple rolled in cinnamon for dessert

Avoid:
The seafood

“croc meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

A very good meal for a reasonable price. We were four and turn our "feed me" card to show the green side. After returning from the well filled salad bar, the waiters (gauchos) started bringing in the meat. Ranging from chicken, lamb, pork to beef and crocodile. As long as you show the green card the meat keeps coming in. Red gives you a little rest. The desert was roasted pineapple with cinnamon. Still hot, a real treat!
Nice atmosphere, well trained staff, very good food.
