SquareMeal Review of Preto

Brazil’s take on the buffet is a lot more exciting than your average chain clichés, judging by this fun ‘churrascaria’ close to Victoria station. Begin by loading your plate with exotic salads, vegetables & hot dishes at the counter, but don’t overdo it. The main attraction is the cavalcade of sizzling skewers spiked with anything from roasted pork loin to peppered steaks, which are carved at your table by flamboyant ‘passadors’. The meat keeps coming, but you can pace yourself with the aid of a two-sided disc – ‘green’ means you’re ready for more; ‘red’ signals that you have waved the white flag. Bohemia beer & caipirinhas are the drinks of choice, while fresh flowers & samba beats add to the carnival atmosphere. At £19.95 for the full works, it won’t break the bank either.

I have been to Preto (Pimlico) mulitiple times now and the food is excellent. Many different types of good quality Brazilian meat served and the service has always been very good. It can get very busy on the weekends, so I would not recommend anyone going there for a quick bite to eat, but if you have time and you go with family / friends then it's a nice way to spend an afternoon.

We planned to escape the cold of winter with a taste of Brasil. Having been to many churrascos in Brasil, we feel qualified to opine. Having had a good experience in the Putney branch before, we returned to the Pitney branch in January. My, were we disappointed. Although some staff were friendly, the waiter treated us as if we were a major inconvenience in his life and we may have been more direct if he didn't have such a large knife in his hand. Thankfully, having recognised that most of the meat wasnt worth the effort of munching, we escaped his dubious charms and went around the corner for some cake. Preto needs to raise its game as it can be good when on form.
