Vaqueiros offers an authentic Brazilian dining experience with an exquisite choice of fresh, prime cuts of meat. Named after traditional horse-riding livestock herders, Vaqueiros’ unique cooking style is inspired by the authentic rodizio technique of rotating meat over an open fire, which ensures that the chargrilled meat remains tender and the meat’s fantastic flavour is preserved.

Vaqueiros offers unlimited access to 16 different cuts of the best locally sourced meat. There are eight different cuts of beef, including the house speciality, picanha, and fillet steak. There’s also lamb, gammon, pork belly, Brazilian sausages, chicken thighs, and chicken hearts – a Brazilian delicacy. The self-service salad bar is equally traditional and extensive, with homemade salads to complement your meal and four or more warm, authentic Brazilian dishes every day. Freshly cooked fish and vegetarian dishes are also available upon request.

Once seated, you’ll be given a disc; service commences as soon as you place your disc with the green side facing upwards. Vaqueiros’ skilled passadores serve delicious cuts of meat, which are carved at your table. If you need a break or wish to pay a visit to the salad bar, simply turn the disc over to red. Apart from the speed of service, one of the main benefits at Vaqueiros is that you can choose how you’d like your meat cooked, from blue to well-done. The pricing is simple, as you pay a set price for the lunch menu or the evening menu; during the day, both menus are available, so every appetite can be satisfied. Whichever option you choose you’ll have unlimited access to the salad bar, which is also available as a standalone option.

The drinks menu is extensive and the wine list has been designed to complement the menu, with authentic Brazilian wine and Argentine malbec. They also serve an exceptional range of imported bottled Brazilian beers and two beers on draught and a good selection of Brazilian cachaça, which can be enjoyed on its own or in one of the fantastic cocktails. For dessert, be sure to try the brigadeiro or the selection of tempting cheeses. Suitable for every occasion, this spacious restaurant is perfect for large parties and would be an excellent choice for your next birthday meal or family gathering.
