Had two vouchers bought for my 50th birthday so used one of them yesterday
My partner and myself loved the meat the only downside is I’m a fussy eater so nothing on the salad bar for me to pick at and the Yorkshire puds were cold aunt Bessie ones and the roast potatoes weren’t roasts they were boiled potatoes but don’t let that hold u back the meat was the star of the show
Rated the second bit of beef that came out and the lamb and the gammon (cinnamon pineapple was amazing)
Will try again next year to use our second voucher see if it’s as good

This was our first time at Estabulo and we really enjoyed it. We picked lunchtime dining as we had the day off work so finished off here after some shopping. Staff were lovely & the restaurant itself was spotlessly clean.
Really tasty salad bar which had extra things like creamy garlic mushrooms which was a great extra.
The meat was amazing - I just wish we could have eaten more. You certainly fill up fast.

Good food and service ( great if you like meat, meat and more meat) but could really do with some hot choices to go with it like mashed or whole potatoes and some hot greens, mac & cheese etc everything was cold and salady, so not quite my scene

Second time at Estabulo in Darlington and like the first time we were very pleased with the experience, The servers are helpful and attentive. The food is very good, a great selection of side dishes really compliment the fantastic selection of meats. One thing, make sure you are hungry when you go for a meal, IMO, you won't be disappointed.

Lovely friendly staff..... the buffet food was beautiful , so much nicer than i thought it would be. .. being sat near the door we did feel a little out of it as there were long periods of time without any meat coming by, and when it did it was the same ones..but when we were served it was lovely... place was clean and tidy. Made a nice change. Thank you

Food was good when it came. Extremely delayed, took over 1 hour for 2 meats to be walked around the restaurant. From the 15 meats advertised and the 2 hours of dining (due to the delays) we received 8/9 of the options.
If we asked for anything water etc we would have to ask a minimum of 3 times before it was actioned. Poor experience from a place we normally really enjoy.

Was an ok visit - maybe not as good as a previous time. Meats not as regular around smaller tables as a bigger group in round the back which seemed to monopolise staff time

Table of 3. Two meat eaters satisfied. The other pescatarian had a limited choice, in fact only the salad bar was suitable,the fish on offer was all fried,chargrilled fish would have been a lovely addition.

Disappointed with the meat serviced we attended for the evening menu and thoughout our stay the meat offering was only half of the listed items and most were cooked rare, although I'm happy to try all versions this was not the case for most of our party. The slices were also extremely small like the size of a spinach leaf. The salad bar however was beautiful. But at £120.00 food only £184.00 including drinks for a table of 4 we did not think it was value for money.

Visited a few weeks earlier and found it fantastic, came back a few weeks later and was very disappointed. We had to wait 25 minutes for drinks, meats were very fatty and we waited over an hour for our chips which were cold when we eventually got them, after asking twice. Very disappointed with the whole experience.

Excellent salad bar and some very tasty meats, especially the chicken, lamb and pork. Some of the beef was very tasty and tender, but some cuts were disappointing.
We enjoyed a lovely Malbec red wine but were not very impressed with the double expresso coffees - tasted like filter coffee that had been a long time on the hot plate! It was a quiet lunchtime which suited us and overall a lovely birthday treat.

We had the most amazing meal!
Thank you.
The service was outstanding, team could do no more for us.
Food was incredible, meats cooked to perfection my favourite was the Brazilian steak and the chilli beef.
Salad buffet was gorgeous and cleaned down / stocked up constantly.
Would highly recommend.
