Honestly, we can't fault this place. The menu is so excellent it really did take a time to decide what we would order but we all made a great choice and every single course was exceptional. The staff were amazing. It was mid week so fairly quiet but that did not take anything away from the experience, in fact it enhanced it as one member of the party can't hear too well, so the lack of back ground noice was a bonus and the atmosphere was still second to none. We will be back and rate this as our favourite restaurant in Leeds. Thank you team Kendell.

This is our second visit and yet again the food and service are excellent. People sat drinking at the bar all the time we were there - needs to make its mind up if it is a good quality restaurant or a bar !!

About the restaurant
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!
We also have a selection of Vegetarian, Halal and Fish dishes on offer and the salad bar which is the perfect start to your meal, and accompanies our entire menu perfectly as little palate cleansers between each skewer that reaches your table.

About the restaurant
Our Sheffield restaurant is in prime position at the beautifully designed and award-winning Fox Valley. We were proud to be part of the original line up when the centre opened in 2016 and we've been bringing our unique take on family friendly Italian dining to our fabulous Yorkshire foodies ever since. Our warm and welcoming restaurant with a stunning private dining room has built up a great reputation and we’re proud to be part of this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

Inspired by the Emilia-Romagna region, our seasonal menus are made with beautiful ingredients from suppliers we know, creating classic Italian dishes presented simply and elegantly and always with the special Ponti's touch.

The private dining room can remain closed from the main bar area – or opened up to be part of the space. This stunning and stylish flexible area is ideal for parties, weddings and meetings – the perfect backdrop for you to make memories.

My daughter and I shared the duck a l’orange and loved it. We have light appetites so was able to share it by adding a side of green beans. Staff was friendly and service was good.
