To further accompany this feast, dishes such as garlic mashed potatoes, polenta, fried banana and artisan cheese breads are served to your table for you to enjoy.Your Brazilian experience would not be complete without one of our hard to resist Caipirinha cocktails.

Poor service, I'm not accustomed to begging for my food, 10 minutes between each variety of meat to be served. Paid £50 for a meal and came away hungry!
Never again!!!

We went after matinee at echo arena, our first visit, but others in our party had been before. the atmosphere was great, staff very friendly and attentive, I loved all the salad/ hot bar, lots of variety, and always topped up. This is not the place for veggies, so much meat I loved the gammon! sausage and chicken! don't really eat the other meats , but other half had it all, and even he was full, it was great quality too. Perfect end to a fabulous day, great food, drinks and company, would def recommend, and return.

We visited this restaurant last night after a visit to the Museum of Liverpool, and must say that although it was a little expensive it was very nice, The idea has been pinched from Pizza hut, where u get a large and varied salad bar and then loads of meat is added (if u turn yr drinks mat over). We could only manage 4 or 5 portions of meat and it was very filling. We did manage to find space for a desert and I must say that it was the best Creme Brulee I had ever eaten. Will def go again sometime.

Second visit to this restaurant and again left us feeling so full. The majority of the meats were amazing but the flank and the cap this visit were a tad tough tough and well over cooked.. but the rest made up for this. The salad cart is very well replenished and fresh.... and to finish the meal was again the most wonderfull pineapple to cleanse the palate.. The bar is on the expensive side but on the whole good value for money and certainly will be back again in the new year ... good job guys

Tough, tough, tough, that's all I have to say about the meat. Service was slow, a lot of standing around by staff although when we did get their attention the were all very polite and obliging. I know it's Liverpool (I am a scouser, so please don't be offended) but I did expect other diners to make more of an effort in their attire and feel there should be a certain level set for dress codes. I do not find tracksuits and hoodies acceptable! we did have an enjoyable evening but I think that was due to the company rather than the food.

Would I return? No

The magician was the best part of our experience at Viva Brazil and his trick left us both puzzled.
