Heard nothing but good things from other people but left alot to be desired. Party of 6 turned up, staff have a 'not my job' attitude. Waiting at reception and we had to approach the staff to say we had a booking - pretty much...said OK and walked off. The food was to be quite honest - terrible. The sides clearly have been bought in frozen, came out on the table in the foil packaging and the mac and cheese was one solid claggy lump. The rice had zero flavour. All the sides were just bad food. The meat skewers were okay - nothing special. Asked to taste the rose prosecco before buying a bottle (they sell it by the glass) and this was not possible apparently. Meal was VERY expensive even with NHS discount and for bad service and bad food. Came a few years ago before covid and was far different to the experience had at the weekend.More

Terrible service, we were served raw chicken, staff shortage meant long waits, staff that were working were too busy serving those with birthdays. Not all 11 meats were available or served, we weren’t asked if we wanted any more of the unlimited sides. We had...to shout on the severs for meat as they seemed to have forgotten about us. We did complain and received 25% of the persons meal that was served raw- won’t go backMore

Myself and friends turned up last night and what a night, amazing service and food that just kept coming. The parmigiana pork was the best thing I've ever eaten and then at the end amazing desserts as well. In total I spent £40 and it...was the best value I've ever had in a restaurant. I must have had £50 worth of meat. Will starve myself before coming next timeMore

Fabulous lunch was had by all, staff very attentive especially Pablo aka Paul, we were celebrating a birthday and nothing was too much trouble. All you can eat meats and sides, love the green and red card. Special mention was the pineapple just wow! The...drinks were great and as a driver I could join in with a mocktail. We had an amazing experience never been before but will be back, desserts too were wonderful with the coconut one being our favourite. The birthday was celebrated in style with music singing and a cake! Brilliant service, well done guys!More

Came with a work colleague after the gym, was peckish. At a glance seems expensive however the constant supply of beautiful cuts of food and the side dishes which are as much as you want make up for that, then some. Staff were fantastic, our...waiter looked after us and was friendly and helpful. Lovely location with good views over the marina. We also benefitted from the military and NHS discount offered. A chain restaurant but a very good branch of one. Would recommend.More

We definitely arrived hungry and left very happy! Amazing food, brilliant staff and perfect cocktails! The only thing that would make it any better would be if it were nearer to a station so we didn’t need a designated driver 😂 That said, my Mojito...mocktail was so good that I didn’t feel like I was missing out at all and have tried to recreate them at home. Wasn’t successful, so will sadly just have to go back!!! 🤣More

I was rather hesitant about booking a table on a Monday night as I thought the place would be empty. However there were quite a few people in the restaurant enjoying the food and the ambience. There is so much to choose from and you...can eat as much as you like. The quality of the lamb, steak, gammon, pork and chicken is really good. There are plenty of little side dishes to choose from and there are plenty of desserts. When I booked it asked if there was any special occasion. I just wrote it was my son’s birthday. Towards the end of the evening staff came out singing with a little birthday cake and a candle. It is quite expensive however money well worth spent. The staff are really lovely and friendly. This is my second visit and I would highly recommend a visit.More

My family (10 of us) and I went to the Casa Brasil Portsmouth last evening, as a special treat for my grandson’s 16th birthday. Although it was on the expensive side, it was also an, ‘eat all you want’, for a basic price, restaurant, which...suited me to a ‘T’. The staff were really friendly, and created a cheerful relaxing atmosphere for the diners. We were given ample time to select our meals from the menu, and it wasn’t too long before they arrived on the table. We had a card on the table indicating if you wanted more helpings on one side, and no more servings on the other. Waiters and waitresses would arrive soon after offering more freshly cooked food stuff as the evening passed by. We were lucky to be there during ‘Happy’ hour when their selection of cocktails were on offer at ‘two door the price of one . The only downfall, was there wasn’t much in selections for the vegetarians in our family.More
