Brazilian Steakhouse
BRINGING THE TASTE OF BRAZIL TO YOU…

Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill honour the Brazilian Gaúcho’s traditional method of cooking. This involves taking the most delicious and flavoursome cuts of meat, which are then skewered and cooked slowly on open flames.
This method of cooking also means that all the meat served to you fresh at your table, straight from the grill. You can eat as much or as little as you like, and we have a large selection of meats on offer, so you can stick to what you know or try something a little bit different!

As well as our main menus, we also have a selection of Vegetarian, Vegan, Halal and Fish dishes on offer.
We are exceptionally proud of the fact that all of our food is locally sourced from the finest local suppliers, and we only use the highest quality ingredients, whether you have dined with us before, or are new to Estabulo Rodizios, we look forward to seeing you soon. Estabulo- bringing the taste of Brazil to you!

We went as a family of four and really enjoyed the evening. The staff were great, friendly and attentive. The food was a served straight from the skewer hot and fresh. We will definitely be visiting again.

Not the usual high standard this Sunday just gone. The meat servers were slow and we had to request them attend our table as they seemed to be passing us by for some unknown reason, hopefully next time we come it’s back to our usual high standard

Such an amazing place, although very noisy but it was a Saturday night, was to be expected. Lots of choice and staff were friendly and attentive, buffet constantly being stocked up, didnt have to wait ages for drinks, only big bear was that the halloumi wasnt bought out till after we were stuffed! I'm sure the staff would have been happy to bring this out if we asked. Overall lovely food and lovely experience

Third time we have been here and just keeps getting better. The salad bar was slightly different again which makes it more interesting. The attention from the staff was superb and the food is awesome. Looking forward to going again!

the evening was ok, it got very busy quite quickly which impacted on our service, and as the meal requires good service it sort of detracted from the experience a little. we had to chase the staff for drink and extra fries etc, and the range of meat was limited, we were never offered some of the varieties and had to ask for them. to be fair the staff were very busy, maybe some more staff would have helped, and all the staff were good and helpful, when you could catch them!

The Service was excellent and the food got better the later it got more were served and the more choices you had, the staff was great could not do enough. The table we had was not in the best position as it was in a walk way for everyone passing. But all in all the experience was good.

We paid more thinking that we would get more and there would be more choice re the buffet style salad. A choice of two puddings was included in the price but neither was available only a fruit tart no choice just a fruit tart on a plate with no presentation with a take it or leave it attitude. A very disappointing meal for £38.95 per person. Over inflated when the choice was the same as any other night. A very poor offering. There was 4 of us and we feel we could have got a lot more for a lot less but we wouldn’t have complained about the price had it been worth it which we feel it was not!

Booked in for festive menu on New Year’s Eve. Greeted and shown to table and then waited for waiter to take our drinks order and receive our Prosecco as promised on arrival. Servers kept coming to out table offering various choice of meats so decided to get some salad and start our meal (still no Prosecco or waiter to take drinks order appeared). After 40 mins had to approach Manager near bar to explain drinks problem and finally after 50mins we got our Prosecco and was able to order some drinks. After finishing our main course we then waited another 40 mins before we then had to approach another manager to order our deserts due to again no waitress serving our table, of the 2 deserts on the menu 1 was not available so me and my wife were offered an alternative and our friends ordered he remaining choice on the menu ours was ok but our friends got something completely different from what they ordered at this point we decided to leave. The meats and the salad bar we enjoyed but the service unfortunately we found to be extremely disappointing. We have used Estabulo at light once before and eaten at there other restaurant in Leeds on other occasions (twice before on New Years Eve) and enjoyed the experience unfortunately not this time.

The menu stated there would be 8 different meats to try but we were only offered 4. Chicken was very dry, all the steak apart from one was chewy and fatty.
Slow service and all the waiting staff were grumpy and never smiled.

Visited for lunch on my 40th birthday and as usual food was outstanding but the experience was slightly let down by the service. The servers weren’t as friendly as on previous visits and seemed to keep missing our booth in favour of a large party further in the restaurant. When passing our booth on the way back to the kitchen, the skewers were either empty or the meat was too rare for some of our group. When one of our group asked for some more well done meat the server just laughed! Overall, we enjoyed our meal but when we’ve been before the service has been as outstanding as the meal but unfortunately not on this occasion.

This is the first time that i have visited the Leeds Estabulo and i would not recommend nor be returning.
Once we had received the basic meats - we were left to wait over half an hour before anyone came round again. The meats in circulation were the same - rump / sirloin .sausage / gammon. Highly disappointing considering it was 28 pound per person.
We were greeted by Carlos who asked if everything was OK.
Unfortunately i had to explain that we were in fact disappointed as we had previously visited the Darlington store and were blown away by the service.
Whilst i have rated this service as poor, following mentioning our dissatisfaction to Carlos, he was quick to try and put it right. It was such a shame because we then only wanted some lamb as we had waited so long.

Would definitely recommend.
We went as a family of four (youngest 11) and couldn’t fault one thing.
The salad bar was amazing, meat delicious, and service excellent. Will definitely be going again.

The best visit to a restaurant that we have ever had!!!

The service was impeccable, so much so that we gave the young lady that looked after us the biggest tip we have ever done (we eat out at least 3-4 times per month).

Food was great, only had the lunchtime menu but the selection of meat available was more than enough with salad table varied and plentiful (fresh chips brought to the table when you want them).

It was my eldest boy’s 13th birthday and our ‘waitress’ arranged for a slice of cake with large candle in it and all the staff sang happy birthday to him (all the other diners joined in)

Once again this was a truly great dining experience made by the staff of Estabulo.

A very relaxed place to eat. Eat as much or as little as you like with the "stop and go" cards on your table. Lots of lovely fresh salads to accompany the delicious meat choices brought to your table. Excellent value and great staff.

Went for lunch and there is a good selection of hot meats and also the buffet cart had a good variety of foods available, including some hot dishes. However, if you aren't a big fan of beef or lamb they don't seem to bring the other options such as chicken or gammon around very often, unless you ask. Most of the meats are gluten free and the buffet cart items are also marked to show what is gluten free.

We were hungry and arrived 1 hour before our booked table time. The host was able to fit us in, this was much appreciated. The buffet is not as well stocked as other similar establishments but a good selection of meat condiments were present. This place serves a selection of Halal meats which you should mention when the carver approaches your table. Mainly there were various beef cuts. There was chicken thighs and minted lamb as well. I would have liked there to have been more chicken pieces like niblets/wings or chicken thigh with skin on. Also, other lamb joints would have been welcomed. There were no Halal sausages which other similar places do nor was there grilled pineapple which most Brazillian restaurants do. However, there were free fries and grilled halloumi cheese. Also table water with ice is free. I would book this place again.

5 of us for Xmas do. Sat in a booth so felt like our own private party. The salad bar selection is fab. The garlic mushrooms are so good. The meat is beautifully cooked and the Lamb is just melt in the mouth delicious-we all had good things to say about everything. The staff were funny and attentive without being over zealous. Definitely will be coming back.

The servers were brilliant, there was an especially friendly and helpful server that asked us exactly which meat we were wanting. One issue I did have was, the man I'm guessing was the manager, he was wearing a suit and bow tie, he was coming to the tables outside as we were walking in and he let the door shut on me. He also then knocked past me in the restaurant. He was very rude and only seemed bothered with the larger parties that were there.
