Lovely food with ample selection, really good service very polite and tentative enough (not overbearing). If you are a ‘foodie’ you will enjoy Cafe Boheme. I would highly recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

Amazing menu, wonderful favours and variety. My Aberdeen lamb was just something special and the crab starter was just perfect. Highly recommend Amuse as a must stop when in Aberdeen. Had the pleasure of meeting Kevin after lunch, he’s a true gentleman…..

About the restaurant
Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill honours 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, 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!
