Great service and absolutely delicious selection of meats. Salad bar was lovely and loads of options. Didn’t feel rushed at all and had a great afternoon. Cocktails were also lovely! Will definitely be returning: couldn’t recommend it more.

Some of the best food I've ever tasted. The meat was cooked and seasoned to perfection and the salad selection was also fantastic. Our waiter (Miguel) was extremely friendly and made sure our visit was pleasant. Can't wait to visit again.

I've not seen a hot rock there before so I would say the answer is no. It's all cut in front of you onto standard plates rather than any hot stone or similar.

From what I recall, they definitely had mustards plus some relishes along with ketchup, mayo etc. The food was really good and if you wanted the steaks rare, medium or well done they'd endeavour to carve it to your liking... More

Description
Here at Vaqueiros, we offer a traditional Brazilian dining experience with authentic Rodizio style service alongside an exquisite choice of fresh, prime cuts of meat. Vaqueiros, the classic horse-mounted livestock herders, brought their trade across to America in the early 16th Century as well as their unique cooking style, and now we're bringing it to York.
