I visited with friends recently as I was intrigued by the concept. One thing is for sure - I will not be returning, nor will the 3 friends who joined me. Almost as soon as a server starts serving your meat - which can only be described as mediocre - another server appears and more meat is added to your... More

Via Brazil had come recommended by a friend. I found the menu initially a little confusing but once it all started it made sense. They were a bit slow to take our drinks order but the slower pace of service suits the restaurant perfectly. Staff serving the meat were always polite and up for a bit of banter. Polenta from...

This restaurant came highly recommended by fellow colleagues. Since we were having visitors from the U.S we thought this would be the ideal location unfortunately we were wrong. Salad bar was excellent and it's just as well as the service was appalling. Cuts of meat were only being served every 20-25minutes. As tasty as the meats were they were few... More

If you like your meat this is the place. Service was good despite it being busy. Food came at good intervals. Can't really complain other than the explanation of how it all worked was a bit rushed leaving us guessing to start with.

Never been to a restaurant like this, you get to try 15 different cuts of hot meats which the waiters carve at your table. Great experience, it was £25 each for the dinner experience, there is a buffet table in the middle for your rice, bread, vegetables and sides. Isn't too much choice there but the meat fills you up...

We where in on Saturday night we got a late booking at 9,30 we where a big table the staff couldn't have been any more helpful. The food was amazing and the buffet was full of lovely fresh food and was getting topped up even when we had eaten after 10pm. We where the last to leave but we're in... More

Went there with my girlfriend to celebrate my birthday. Had spoken really well of the place since the last time I went there was amazing. This time, however, things were rather unimpressive. Initially, I must praise the good food and the service. Meat was usually amazing (with a few exceptions which could be easily forgotten) and the staff really friendly.... More

If you love meat and lots of it, Viva Brazil is the place to go. We opted for the 'Eat Every Meat' buffet option. Lets just say we can eat and after one cut of each meat we were full! The flank steak was a personal highlight and the lovely waiter remembered I prefer very rare meat and waited until... More
