Brazilian Steakhouse
Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill honour 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! We also have a selection of Vegetarian, Halal and Fish dishes on offer and the salad bar which is the perfect start to your meal, and accompanies our entire menu perfectly as little palate cleansers between each skewer that reaches your table.

    Restaurant was very quiet but still seemed to be too much for the bar staff to handle, we asked for drinks and it took 20 minutes before they came back over to ask if we wanted any more drinks then when we told them we had already asked they said they had forgot. Very poor. Meat didn’t seem to be coming around fast enough either, very slow sat staring over at the kitchen door to see when they were coming with more which seemed like it didn’t happen very often. For the price we paid I think it was very poor. The food tasted great but service ruined the whole experience. Won’t be back in a hurry

    We attended as a table of nine for a 50th birthday celebration. One of which was vegetarian, 4 meat eaters and 4 fish. The salad bar had a good variety, plenty of vegetarian options. The meat eaters had an overall positive meal, a range of meats which were tasty. The vegetarian option butternut risotto however was very bland and the fish basket was overwhelming greasy. This was highlighted to the wait staff who said they would feed it back to the chef. Overall out of the 4 fish dishes ordered, merely 1/2 of it was eaten due to the overwhelming amount of oil on the fish. The place is beautiful inside, great atmosphere, modern and spacious interior however felt that the food quality was not up to the expectations. Would recommend for meat eaters and even anyone who is looking for a tasty salad however would not return on the basis of the experience.

    Went as a group of x4 lads for the unlimited brunch including drinks. The quality of the food was top notch, with the waiting staff coming up every 3 or 4 mins to offer the next cut. Good variety of different meats, all prepared well. Staff all friendly and polite. I've never eaten so much in one sitting.

    We booked for 12 when the restaurant opened so had our choice of seats. The window seats are the best as they look out over the river and castle/cathedral. Service was excellent (as always). As it was our son's 18th birthday, Baz (our chief server) arranged for him to have a cocktail on the house - which was a lovely gesture. The barmaid asked him if it was ok afterwards too. This is typical of the staff at Durham Estabulo - friendly, professional and very customer-focussed. The food was its usual standard - juicy, tender and flavoursome meat, but also an excellent, varied and regularly re-stocked salad bar. Thank you to all of the staff and management who make this a really lovely place to visit - you have never once disappointed.

    Visited Saturday 23/03/2024 5pm, for the third time we've been here. Was something of a disappointment this time. We asked for well done meat, but were often offered quite pink / red pieces, and some looked and tasted strange. Staff were pleasant and courteous, including one later on who returned to the kitchen to cook the meat some more for us. The pace at which meats were offered was about right. Chips weren't brought to us until towards the end of our time eating, long after we'd requested them. Can't say I recognised any of the serving staff from previous visits, so wonder if high turnover is an issue, although some of these matters are basic to a meat restaurant like this. With the fairly high price - we spent £49 each including one drink each (excluding service charge) - the offering needs to be better and more consistent.

    Service was a little longer than it has been in the other Estabulo we normally go too. We had to ask for chips normally they just get brought over. Settling our bill was the worst bit… we had a £50 gift card had £61 remaining… handed over £65 in cash….. we were told we couldn’t have any change as they only had 1p coins in change…. Unless we wanted £4 in 1p coins!!! What’s that all about?? Baring in mind there was already over £10 on there as a service charge!! It’s pretty shocking really and to be honest it’s put me off actually returning.

    Asked three time for chips for the table. Was there 90 minutes and they never came. Requested more drinks which never came. Food was unreal and staff were friendly enough. Then we ordered a cheesecake to share but they brought and charged us for two. Then out the 10% charge on despite us not getting the stuff we’d asked for multiple times and being brought additional in ordered items. Meal was great. Atmosphere was great. Staff were friendly but this is the third time I’ve been and not had chips. I don’t know if they’re still growing the potatoes or what but Nevermind.

    1st time here. My husband, our 2 friends and myself really enjoyed our night. Lovely surroundings with lovely music (slow versions of we'll know songs) ensured lovely ambience. We were asked if we had been before and then all was explained about what would happen and what we needed to do (grab the meat of our choosing with our tongs (not tongues 😂) when the server cuts slithers (in whatever amount you require). The salad bar was really good- Pasta salads, cold meats & cheeses, loads of cold tapas bits and of course various salads. Also a lovely creamy mushroom and peppercorn sauce to accompany the meat. 1 portion of chips per person were complimentary and they were also lovely. Then the meat 💓...... The servers continually came round with skewers of delicious and juicy meat. All absolutely lovely but I wish I'd turned my card over (Red means stop the meat and green means keep it coming) when being offered chicken and sausages as I didn't have much room for the many types of beef on offer. All of those serving were really friendly and polite and we had some fun with Pedro and Jim in particular. Thank everyone...Fantastica! 😍😍😍

    First visit and won’t be the last. Went for lunch and was a nice relaxed time even though we had kids with us. Salad bar had so much choice and you could tell everything was fresh. There was so much meat, and oh my god the rump steak was on another level! Only regret was filling up before the garlic bread skewers came out! Was a little pricey but expected as it is all you can eat after all. We will definitely be back.

    Absolutely incredible food. The only thing was, the pork belly was overcooked and very tough. But the other amounts of meats we had definitely outweighed that small issue. Salad bar was lovely, so much choice and very clean! Lovely and friendly staff.

    My daughter, son, and I, thoroughly enjoyed our first time at Estabulo Durham (for an evening meal). The dining area sets exactly the right tone for the excellent food that was to follow. The cuts of meat were excellent both in flavour and how they were cooked. The quality was consistent throughout, and all of the staff members were helpful, friendly, and very professional. They are a credit to the establishment. We look forward to our next visit (hopefully soon).

    Looked like we were going to miss out when they had a power cut but I was kept informed and were able to attend. Staff very good. My wife not keen on rare meat and staff made sure they came back with a well done piece of steak. All types of meat were delicious and the salad bar was excellent.

    We were in a group of 9 people and our table kept being missed with all the meats until I mentioned to a member of staff that we are not being served. Also I brought a birthday cake as a surprise and a member of staff ruined the surprise bringing plates and spoons and also mentioning about the cake before we got to say happy birthday which was a little bit upsetting. Overall food was lovely and the members of staff were all very polite and friendly.

    We dined on Valentine’s Day a table for 2 , The meat was delicious however cold. As it was Valentine’s Day we didn’t want to make a scene by telling the waiter/waitress to spoil other guests dining experience Some of the meats were just warm. However we got served chicken that was stone cold the lamb was stone cold. We had to keep asking for more drinks as nobody came to ask We have visited here before & this experience was nothing like last time we dined as last time we couldn’t fault it. Disappointing

    The service is always fantastic from the waieters and servers to the host. The food was amazing as usual and they even made sure we got a last round of our favourites before we were too full. Our female server was honestly went above and beyond and gave such a personal service. We will continue to make it one of our overall favorite places to eat
