The idea is great, the meat is fantastic and it keeps coming at a very good pace. Not all members of the waiting staff seem to be totally switched on though... a couple of them mostly seemed to parade around like peacocks while others were doing most of the work. This said, I'll definitely go again!

The meet quality is just on average. Too many people sat to close each other. Cover charge too expensive as week as a bottle of still water. I would not advise to go there.

Went there as we was in the west end for a show. The restaurant was clean and tidy. Food was very good and a good selection of meats are brought to your table. If you are going to a show you get 20% off if you show your tickets.

Having booked a week in advance, we visited Preto at 9pm on a Saturday night. We've been to others and have always enjoyed. To be clear, I know it's a Saturday night and I know it's a Shaftesbury Ave restaurant. We got to the door and were seen quickly. We were then told our table was downstairs and were just... More

We enjoyed the caipirinhas and the food was very delicious. All the staff members seemed well trained and happy! The only thing we didn't appreciate was the temperature inside the restaurant, we felt very cold and other customers were dining with their coats on as well.

Very nice restaurant placed in a great area. First time when I tried and was certainly a great decision. Lots of meat all kinds well cooked really good selection. Very intrasting idea with the cards, so if you leave it green they will continously come and ask you with different selections, if you leave it red nobody will bother you... More

If you would like to taste almost all type of meat come to this restaurant. From chicken, sausages, pork, lamb, beef, etc. For around £21 you'll get yourself stuffed with all these meat + the unlimited salad on the counter.

Good restaurant with loads of different options of meat served fresh to the table. Love the idea of the cards. Green side up keep serving, red side up stop for now. The meat dishes were lovely, well cooked and a good variety from pork, sausages, steak, chicken and gammon to name a few. Worth a visit.

Thank TraceyMK

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
