What a fantastic find in this lovely little restaurant. I purchased a voucher on one of the usual "deal websites". I can't quite remember what I paid for it; however without this offer, you would expect to pay £16.95 per person for the evening menu. Worth every penny.
A small(ish), intimate restaurant set on Morrison street, with a lovely ambience and very friendly staff. The two females who greeted us and served the food were very pleasant. It is an all you can eat Brazillian restaurant. Help yourself to the buffet (fries, brazillian beans, salad, rice etc) as much as you wish, and then the waitress brings a variety of meat to you... and is carved off at your table.
The meat consisted of sausage, silverside, brisket, gammon, lamb, chicken...oh, and chicken hearts (which I wasn't brave enough to try). Everything else was cooked beautifully and tasted so tender.
It works on the red / green card system. Just turn the card on your table to green if you wish to eat... then over to red if you're taking a break or finished. The waitress was very efficient and seemed to be serving meat every few minutes.
Bring your own bottle (£2 corkage)
We didn't have any deserts, purely because we were stuffed.
All in all, a lovely dining experience. At the time of our visit, it was fairly quiet as it was an early booking for 5:30pm on a Friday night. However I do hope that even on their busiest nights, they are still as attentive and the service is equally as good. Only one way to find out........ :-)
Definitely worth a visit.
