This place is a meat eater's heaven. For a set price you get all the meat you can eat. We ate fairly early in the evening and in general we found the meat to be very good. It was nicely cooked and tender. I wouldn't...More

Good selection of meats very tasty and well cooked. Loved the veggies buffet with cooked and raw plates. Great service and I liked the fact that all waiters seemed to speak portoguese which gives a touch to the restaurant. Couldn't try the desserts but looked...More

The place got very big potential but it looks like someone is trying to safe money. The stuff is not very friendly. They just look tired and grumpy. Maybe just boring, not bubbly as I’m expecting.The salad bar is boring and meat selection is getting...More

After driving 250+ miles (round trip) we were not disappointed at all. We have eaten in many rodizio style restaurants, including in Brazil and this was one of the best we have had in the UK. The quality and selection of meats were extremely good,...More

Rodizio Preto, a dining experience like no other. Sit back, relax and enjoy the truly unique Brazilian Rodizio grill.Our meats are slow-roasted over an authentic Brazilian Churrascaria to capture their individual flavour. The lunch and dinner menus feature unlimited servings of up to 15 different delectable cuts of spit roasted meats which are presented on skewers and carved tableside by our authentic 'Passadors' at your request. Preto not only offers you these noble meats but also a variety of expertly prepared Gourmet salads, pastas, rice and the famous 'Feijoada' (weekends only) and 'Feijao', all freshly made in house. Each guest ordering the full menu uses a two-sided disk to control the pace of their meal. The green side signals the Passador to bring out skewers of sizzling meats to carve at the table. The red side indicates the stopping point. Turning back to green lets the Passador know to start offering the meats again.
