Description: At Botafogo you control the service. Turn your “green/red card ” to green and our chefs will bring you our delicious 7 cuts of meat (including our special meat of the week).As long as your card is green the chefs will keep serving. Whenever you wish to have a break just turn the card to red; and to resume service back to green.To accompany your meat we will bring you : chips, rice and feijao (yummy Brazilian black beans).If you wish to order any other sides you will find them in the premium side dishes section on our menu.

Great idea! If you like lots of neat and can eat a fair bit then go for it! All good quality tasty meat and as much or as little as you want. The place is a little tired and could do with sprucing up a bit! The staff are your and don't have much idea about customer service but they were okay. We were left waiting 30 mins past our reservation time to sit down which was quite annoying. All meat or medium or rare so if you like well done, it's probably no good for you! I think I'd go back but not in a hurry!

Having read many reviews we decided to visit. The staff were welcoming, polite and helpful. The early arrival of our side dishes well before any meat meant that they had gone quite cold when the meat arrived.

All the meat was well cooked and very tasty. We never had a wait before more meat arrived. The staff were attentive but not pushy.

Just beware the 'voluntary' service charge included in your bill !!!

Overall it was enjoyable, if expensive and on a personal note I do not like having a 'voluntary' tip included in my bill. It was just lacking that little bit of pzazz for us.

We didn't know what to expect of this place but the reviews were very good so we went for it. It is a family-run restaurant and they and their staff are very warm and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed, happy and friendly.

You are given a disc -rather like a beer mat. One side is green - for GO and the other side is red for STOP. As long as you are showing green, the waiter brings all kinds of delicious meats to your table. You just say beforehand, how you like it cooked. We like our meat charred and it came EXACTLY as we like it. I noticed other tables getting rare or medium-rare. First comes the starters : hot dough balls and lamb pancake/pakora-type things. Totally DELICIOUS! Then the meats start: Gammon And you help the waiter scrape off as much as you would lik, by a tool that you are given. After Gammon comes steak, then marinated barbecued chicken thighs, then other meats etc until you turn your card to RED for a rest or a complete stop. Also beautiful accompaniments are brought over. Basically it's all completely delicious and a very unique way of being served. The puddings were great too. It's not cheap at £25 per head plus drinks and tip etc, but it's real quality food and great cooking and you will feel its worth the money.

If you like meat then this is the place for you... Talk about meat overdose! I left in a meat coma. it was all a little bit mental as when we arrived it took the staff 30 mins to clear our table due to a previous sitting but once we finally got sat down the food was nicely cooked to my liking (All Medium rare and medium) and the service was good !
if you like your meat well done then id go somewhere else.
The idea of the red and green card to say you want more or a rest is a great idea.

This place was recommended by a friend, so we booked it for our anniversary meal. We booked online which is always convenient. Upon arrival the lady behind the bar couldn't find our booking and although there were only 4 other couples in the restaurant she pulled two tables apart to sit us by the wall with a wobbly table. Eventually a pleasant waiter came to fix the problem and apologised for the delay. He explained the process and asked how we liked our meats. In theory it all sounded exciting and for £25 a head, I thought we were going to be treated to a feast. Sides were average, meats were bland and unappetising and the chef, miserably kept bringing the same meats out, namely beef - which I don't normally eat. There was no incentive to stay and eat as much as you can to get good value for money. The cheesecake desert however, was divine. For me, the place lacked in ambience and atmosphere and I've ended up booking a 2nd restaurant to make up for it.
