Estancia Brasil ranks as one of London’s most authentic Brazilian steakhouses, not least because what’s to be found online about it panders almost exclusively to the Portuguese speaking community. But we’ve been to Estancia Brasil’s Swiss Cottage restaurant along Finchley Road, and can confirm that the food ratifies Estancia Brasil’s status as the real Latin American deal. Backed by an ethos of farm to fork, guests here are treated to sophisticated service and indulgent Brazilian banquets.
Traditional picanha (rump cap) tops the list of over ten cuts of premium beef available at Estancia Brasil, cooked to perfection over a traditional South American rodizio grill. This is the prime (forgive the pun) reason that London’s carnivorous connoisseurs head to most any Latin American steakhouse restaurant in the city – for the delectable grills – and it’s certainly a good enough reason as any to book a table at Estancia Brasil’s Swiss Cottage premises down Finchley Road.
Besides the classic South American meats on offer, Estancia Brasil offers a private bar where diners can chat over drinks while the Brazilian passadores fire up the this Swiss Cottage steakhouse’s rodizio, which also boasts an enviable happy hour. And, while superlative service is standard at this Finchley Road restaurant, the rustic charm of London’s Estancia Brasil belies the fact that there is free WiFi on tap as well as fine wine – so you can stay connected while you connect with friends and family.
Very nice food and friendly staff! It was a nice experience, we will recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family and definitely go back soon!
We both loved it! It was great value for money and the staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was cooked to perfection with a wide choice of buffet foods and lots of different meats.
Great food and very attentive staff, also not to bad on the pocket ££. Overall great place for a evening out, will recommend it to friends.
Fantastic meat Heaven, friendly staff excellent service, can't wait to go again. The food just keeps coming and tastes amazing, Groupon voucher was well worth it.
Good food and very-very friendly staff. As for the value-price ratio: perhaps there could be a 3rd price for those who want to taste the meat but cannot try all of them. By paying for the higher priced option but only being able to taste half of the meat I don't feel it was good value for money. I can be just as full by paying half the price for an a la carte meal in a different restaurant, serving similar quality food. I hope this is a useful feedback and will help the restaurant to develop.
Food excellent and the staff were good fun :) Only reason it is not a top rating is the decor is functional rather than attractive, but to be honest, a Brasilan bbq is only about one thing - the meat! Here, the restaurant excels, offering really good beef, pork and chicken. As normal, don't be tempted to eat too much of the salad bar, make sure you leave room for the real food ;) Also, the chicken hearts are fantastic!
Very nice restaurant. Friendly and attentive staff and beautifully cooked meats. Nice to find an authentic Brazilian churrascaria in Swiss Cottage. The marshmallows and chocolate fountain finished off a very enjoyable meal beautifully. Will certainly return. If you love meat, then you must visit.
Like going to a good restaurant in Rio. Food good and you can eat yourself to a standstill. Staff friendly and helpful. Place clean and modern. Very suitable for large parties. Right next to the tube station. Difficult to fault it. Make sure you're hungry because you won't be when you leave.
The food was fantastic, a lot of options and everything was absolutely delicious. Fantastic selection of meats, cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable from beginning to end. We had an absolutely fabulous first experience and will be certainly going back.
Lovely environment, bg and spacey. Staff very polite and quick. I am BRazilian and took my boyfriend there for his birthday treat as he loves his meat. And it was a wonderful experience. Strongly recommend.
