Celebrated hubbies birthday here and everyone loved it. Plenty of meat the way you like it. Buffet had plenty of salads and sauces. Super friendly staff that makes you feel welcome right from the start. Miguel even organised a surprise happy birthday dessert.

I came here with my boyfriend, I have never had Brazilian food, but I wasn't disappointed. The service was good and the food was amazing. The meat was really tasty.

Went with a group of friends; the food and wine were fantastic! Good choice of salads as well; shame the full range of meat cuts wasn't being brought out unless prompted! Overall very good value for money and will come back again!

If you love meat food it’s a moderate taverna to have some choices ... it should have been cleaner and more professional, there are so many other nice restaurants around ...

Quality was great but choice was limited especially the salad bar in comparison to other Braz restaurants. Service was very good.

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.

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.
